The dark ride is the best part about this whole pavilion. I'm surprised how long it lasted without one. Be warned, you will have one particular song stuck in your head from the finally for the rest of the day. (As if the entire Future World Loop wasn't enough already.)

Finding Nemo will certainly go down in history as one of the best all-time cartoon films. Naturally I knew it wouldn’t be long until Disney utilized the popularity of the cartoon to base an attraction off it. Completely redoing the old Living Seas ride (I unfortunately never experienced it before it was removed though), it was transformed into a flashy new Nemo dark ride, but sadly it just wasn’t very good at all.

The Seas pavilion looked nice from the outside and I loved how it was air-conditioned on the inside (honestly that may have been the best feature of the entire attraction). Also, thanks to the utilization of constantly moving vehicles like the Haunted Mansion uses, this never has a line at all from what I saw, and it was the new attraction this year! One other comment about the attraction are the clam-mobiles. I honestly thought they looked nice, but once I boarded and the actual ride began, it just was a massive letdown in my opinion.

First and foremost, I really disliked how the ride utilized projections for the characters, as opposed to the much better animatronics. I know animatronics probably would have been more expensive and difficult to implement, but I think that they would have made this ride dramatically better. The projections just looked and felt weird in my opinion. Also, the ride’s plot was terrible and just very confusing, with the problem being that Disney was determined to include every single one of the movie’s characters, which caused just some unnecessary scenes being included in the attraction, and it just really hurt my overall ride experience. Despite my love of the movie, I honestly was just bored to death on this attraction. The best part by far during the actual ride was the section displaying the actual fish.

While I’m sure many others enjoy the new Nemo ride and theme far more than the original Living Seas, but I just really was extremely disappointed in Nemo. I was expecting a pretty fun ride with animatronics and a typical good Disney ride experience, but I didn’t get either of those. Worse than those, Nemo really seemed to lack that all-important Disney charm many of their dark rides are well-known for. Certainly Nemo is worth giving a chance while at EPCOT, especially if you’re a fan of the film, since it never has a wait, but I guess just go on with minimal expectations.

This was a great attraction. It had all the elements of a flawless performance. The film &quot.Seas&quot. was entertaining and educational. The hydrolators were a bit silly but fun I guess. My favorite was the circle room with the aqua images floating across the floor and ceiling. Goodbye old friend it was fun during the 1980&#39.s and 1990&#39.s. Hello Nemo, you destroyer of this attraction.

I’m sorry I try to be positive about this Attraction but I heard so much about it and to tell you the truth I wasn’t impressed and I wish I was. I think Disney could do a better job at this I wish they would try to make some living reef aquariums. You known how amazing that could be Wow. Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas did an amazing job with there aquarium I loved that aquarium. I just wish Disney would redo this.

A four and no more. This is just bad. A long wait to see crush that is all it is. I couldnt wait the time to see crush. Just way to much to see at epcot. I would love to give it a higher rating but I cant.

I absolutely hate this place. First of all, it is the slowest line ever to go nowhere. We waited for at least 30 minutes to be put in the "elevator" that takes you nowhere but the to the other side. Once you are there the actual aqurium isnt all that great. It has one of the smallest Manatee enclosures ever which really disturbs me. Now that they have the Finding Nemo theme it is of course packed full of kids. Being a huge fan of zoos, I would prefer to see the animals rather then fighting crowds. They also got rid of the people mover so now it is even worse. I didnt however see the interactive Crush, so I am basing my opinion strickly on the aqurium. I also cant stand the fact that I have to wait to leave. Any good animal exhibit should let you come and go as you please, this exhibit stops you both directions. I absolutely hate it and will not return!

A very good aqurium but with a poor design. This attraction takes a long time to get into even with short waits. It is also a bit hard to see some of the fish because of the closed floor of the observation deck. The manatee exibt however is very good. I could do without the Finding Nemo exibt.
