You can't miss The Seas with Nemo and Friends at Epcot, the most fun you'll ever have at an aquarium.
Formerly The Living Seas, there is so much to do there. From boarding a “clamobile” to ride The Seas with Nemo and Friends to visiting Crush and Squirt on the EAC!
It will be righteous, Dude!
Though I've been to this area of Future World many times before, on this day I was able to go behind the scenes.
We were above what you see normally see, at the top of the tank.
I wish I could have been able to take photos while I was seeing where the animals are checked each day by the divers, but it was not allowed.
You can see the divers in action in the The Seas with Nemo and Friends aquarium right through the windows.
We watched a dolphin trainer work with a pair of dolphins.
One of the bloggers from our group was selected to give them a couple of commands!
Though the Open Seas is mesmerizing, there is more to see! Be sure to wander through and look at the Cuddlefish and take some time to learn about the coral restoration projects.
Walt Disney was very concerned about conservation, and it still shows in all that Disney continues to do to help protect animals in and out of the sea, as well as their natural habitat.
I learned a lot about their efforts when I interviewed Dr. M. Sanjayan, Disneynature Ambassador.
In fact, the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund has given more than $27 million to support conservation in over 100 countries.
“Conservation isn’t just the business of a few people, it’s a matter that concerns all of us…If we will use our riches wisely, if we will protect our wildlife, and preserve our lakes and streams, these things will last us for generations to come.” – Walt Disney
My daughter was on a team who went to the Florida Keys to help restore coral when she was an intern at Mote Marine Aquarium.
It was an amazing experience for her. One of the DWCF-funded projects in the Florida Keys brings in volunteers from the local community as well as from around the country to grow, monitor, transplant, and maintain corals just off Key Largo.
You can see a little of what Disney conservation in The Seas with Nemo and Friends. Be sure to spend at least part of your day in there!
Festivals at Epcot
When making your plans to visit Epcot, take a look at the schedule of special events. The Flower and Garden Festival and the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival are both so much fun, even worth scheduling your vacation around those dates.
The newest festival is the Epcot Festival of the Arts, and it's a blast, too!
And then there are the holiday special events. Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party is so much fun.
I know there is so much to do at Epcot, but I promise your kids will love this area! Bonus- it's cool when it's hot outside or you get caught in a pop up rain shower!
