One of our favorite Future World pavilions in Epcot is the Seas with Nemo and Friends. Usually when we think of this pavilion our minds go right to it’s most famous attractions.
- The Seas with Nemo and Friends Attraction (click here for a ride-through video from Attractions Magazine.)
- Turtle Talk with Crush (click here to see video of this interactive experience.)
Perhaps you have dined at the FABULOUS Coral Reef restaurant where fish can be friends OR food. Check out the link here for more on the Coral Reef!
At any given moment you will find folks waiting to pose with Bruce the shark over at “Bruce’s Shark World”.
It’s very easy for us to take part in the popular Nemo attraction, see Crush…even eat at the Coral Reef…and then be on our way. But there is more to check out while we are here!
You can discover sea turtles, angelfish, dolphins, rays, sharks and more in the 5.7-million-gallon aquarium. Did you know this is one of the largest man-made ocean environments in the world? The Caribbean Coral Reef Aquarium is home to over 4,000 sea creatures representing over 60 species.
Here’s a fun tip. Anyone with park admission can catch the fish feedings at 10:00 AM and 3:30 PM. They even throw in a little educational value because a Cast Member will describe the rays, sea turtles and fish you see before you. Another favorite activity is ascending to the second floor’s Observation Deck—a circular, window-lined room in the middle of the aquarium. Here you will find yourself almost completely surrounded by marine life.
Next time you visit this wonderful pavilion you may want to slow down to enjoy all the wonderful tanks and creatures there are to see.
Here are just a few examples:
I love this video from Destinations Florida. It features even more of the often overlooked areas and exhibits.

Browsing around the Seas with Nemo and Friends pavilion, especially on a quiet day in Epcot, can be particularly relaxing and an all-around great experience. Every day is a great day to visit this pavilion, because cool temperatures can be enjoyed here year-round.
