Fun Facts about the Seas with Nemo and Friends

7 Jaw-Dropping Fun Facts About The Seas with Nemo and Friends Pavilion in EPCOT!

The Seas with Nemo and Friends is an attraction that’s found within The Living Seas…or Seabase…or Future World West. Basically, it’s the pavilion that’s next to The Land Pavilion!

There are a ton of great insights into the construction, creation and ideas that went into the original Living Seas pavilion, but so many folks visit the attraction and don’t know what to look for. It’s my goal to give a few fun facts to allow for guests to enjoy this ride even more!

1. It’s HUGE!

Did you know that The Seas with Nemo and Friends Pavilion is home to one of the largest saltwater tanks in the world? Yep, we’re talking about 5.7 million gallons of water, folks! That’s enough to fill Spaceship Earth (the giant golf ball) nearly twice!

2. A Researcher’s Paradise

It’s not all fun and games; there’s serious science happening here too! The pavilion collaborates with multiple educational and conservation organizations. So when you’re there, you’re not just a guest—you’re a potential ocean advocate!

3. Finding Nemo, Literally

Remember the joy and the tears the movie brought you? Well, relive it with Nemo and pals in a “clamobile” as you explore the reef. Not just a ride, it’s an experience!

4. It’s An Ecosystem

Beyond being a super-sized fish tank, The Seas Pavilion is a fully functioning ecosystem that provides a home to over 3,000 creatures. From dolphins and sharks to turtles and rays, this place is the ultimate underwater kingdom!

5. Turtle Talk with Crush is Unscripted

That’s right! This interactive show features Crush, the laid-back sea turtle from Finding Nemo, engaging in real-time conversations with the audience. Because it’s live animation technology, no two shows are the same.

6. Secret Nods to the Movie

Disney’s in the details! Keep your eyes peeled for a seagull shouting, “Mine! Mine! Mine!” and other subtle nods to the Finding Nemo film as you explore the pavilion.

7. Don’t Miss the Hidden Mickeys!

If you’re a Hidden Mickey hunter, you’re in for a treat. The Seas Pavilion is teeming with Hidden Mickeys if you look carefully. It’s like a bonus scavenger hunt!

And there you have it! The Seas with Nemo and Friends is more than just another attraction; it’s a celebration of marine life, a hub for education, and a goldmine of Disney magic. So the next time you’re at EPCOT, make sure to swim on by!

See you under the sea!
