What to Expect: Turtle Talk is a live interactive show featuring Crush, the turtle from Finding Nemo. The theater is small and the kids are asked to sit up front.
Crush moves, chats, and fields audience questions in real time and every show is unique.
Where to Sit: Adults and teenagers should be able to see the screen in front of the theater just fine from any seat. Younger kids are welcome to sit on the floor in the front of the theater. Sitting anywhere is fine.
FastPass+: Yes, moderate priority. FastPass+ is only useful here when the standby line is cut off because the next show is likely to fill to capacity. At that point, FastPass+ users are still guaranteed access to the next available show. If you have a FastPass+ for Turtle Talk and the standby line for the next show is short, change your FastPass+ to a different experience as you’ll enjoy the same exact show as you would with FastPass+. There is no reserved seating section for FastPass+.
FastPass+ users head through into the pre-show holding area on the right, even if standby is full.
Standby guests may need to wait through an entire show in this queue before being allowed to wait in the pre-show area for the next show, resulting in a wait of around 35 minutes.
What You Miss Using FastPass+:
Nothing but the potential wait in standby. Everyone using FastPass+ and seeing the show in standby will wait in this area until the next show starts.
Total Average Experience Time with FastPass+: 25 minutes.

When To Go: Before 11am or after 7pm.
Fun Facts: Andrew Stanton, the original voice of Crush, wrote and directed Finding Nemo and Wall-E. Disney had to shut down Turtle Talk five days after it opened because its popularity was overwhelming the Pavilion. It reopened a few weeks later in a new location.
Commentary: Turtle Talk is one of the neatest shows at Disney World. Crush is rendered in real time at 60 frames per second and it will appear as though his lips move in perfect sync with his words. The attraction has become so popular that larger theaters have been installed at Disney’s California Adventure, Hong Kong Disneyland, and Tokyo DisneySea. Although the show is geared towards kids, most adults should appreciate the humor and technologu. It’s a great way to get off your feet in the Florida heat.
