INTERCOT > News > Press Event Day One 

Day One: The Big Blue World Event

On January 24, 2007, the Walt Disney World resort commemorated a newly re-imagined pavilion at Epcot and officially premiered a new Broadway quality show at the Animal Kingdom—both centered around the film “Finding Nemo”.

The Seas with Nemo & Friends Pavilion is the newly re-imagined form of the Living Seas Pavilion. In addition to Turtle Talk (which opened in 2004), the new pavilion features an anchor attraction by the same name. The Seas with Nemo & Friends features technology that puts the stars of "Finding Nemo" swimming amid the live marine life of the pavilion’s huge aquarium. Although Guests have been enjoying the pavilion in its new form since Fall 2006, the Big Blue World Event officially christened the pavilion’s re-imagined state.

Out of the watery depths of Dinoland USA, a rousing musical journey has emerged. Finding Nemo-The Musical creates a magical undersea environment through innovative lighting, sound, special effects, animated projections, and the theatrical puppetry. Although the show had several months of previews under its belt, the official World Premier was held as part of the Big Blue World Event.


Finding Nemo—The Musical

Just finished up the Nemo musical and I have to say I was impressed. I really didn't know how a non musical would translate into a musical, or how they would pull of fish as puppets but all works very well and has the feel of a Broadway musical. once you get past the fact that the puppets are operated and voiced by people in plain view... you become immersed in the big blue world. good news for fans of the Nemo ride... the finale song is incorporated into the show. --JohnY

Big Blue World Party Finale


The Seas with Nemo & Friends

"The dedication of "the Seas with Nemo and Friends" took place at the Big Blue World Party. The party include special entertainment and a fireworks finale. We certainly felt like we were in the "Sea" as it poured most of the night. This was not the normal 15 minutes and it's over rain. This was constant, steady, relentless, cold, rain. I actually felt bad for Disney because it was obvious that they had quite a shindig set up and ready to go outside - and it all had to be moved indoors. Even with that, food was plenty (good sushi and prime rib) and the drinks were flowing. They had some very neat "cirque" kind of stuff with what we called bubble people - folks in white body suits and white balloons floating around them and giant jelly fish type things floating all around. They also made a bunch of palm trees look like giant jelly fish as well. Inside, they showed off the new Nemo ride which we have already reported on here at INTERCOT and Turtle Talk. Of note, they also have built a wall at the very end of the Nemo queue, so you now don't see right into the rest of the Pavilion, thereby ruining the whole "we're underwater" thing."
