Opened: October 2006.
Location: Future World –The Seas Pavilion.
The Seas Pavilion is located to the right of the Land Pavilion behind Innoventions West.
The entrance to the ride is around to the left side of The Seas’ logo. The Coral Reef table service restaurant is located around the corner on the right.
Extra Magic Hours: Evening.
Length: 4 minutes.
Similar To: Haunted Mansion, Spaceship Earth.
Scary Factor: Low, perhaps moderate for the very young.
There is a friendly shark animatronic and it’s dark, but that’s about it.
What to Expect: Nemo & Friends is a slow “clamobile” ride through a long Finding Nemo themed tunnel.
The neatest part of the attraction is when the characters from Finding Nemo are shown swimming with real fish inside of the 5.7 million gallon salt-water tank.
The ride lets visitors out at The Seas Pavilion, which is full of hands-on activities and places to view the 6,000+ underwater animals that live within one of the largest undersea environments in the world. Turtle Talk is nearby.
Where to Sit: Each clamobile seats two to three in a single row. Everyone’s view is the same.
FastPass+: Yes. Low priority.
What You Miss Using FastPass+:
Nemo’s queue is underrated, but you’re still bypassing just a couple of set pieces and it’s extremely dark and hard to see inside.
Total Average Experience Time with FastPass+: 12 minutes.
4th FastPass+ Availability:
Expect to Wait:
When To Go: Before 11am, after 5pm, or with FastPass+. Waits are almost always nonexistent before 10am and after 7pm.
Rating: 8/10 for kids around ten or younger. 5/10 for adults.
Commentary: Nemo is a slow ride that younger visitors will probably enjoy more than teens or their parents. Although the Nemo ride conveniently transports visitors to The Seas Pavilion, it’s also possible to enter the Pavilion through the gift shop. It’s best to explore the air-conditioned Pavilion and its exhibits during the afternoon heat or during peak hours at Epcot when lines are at their longest. Make sure to pay special attention to the manatee exhibit. The Seas With Nemo & Friends ride is a must-do if you have young children, but not a necessity if you don’t. With short waits, everyone should enjoy the minimal commitment.
