The Seas with Nemo & Friends at Epcot

    By Carrie McLaren

    If you’re looking for a unique experience with plenty of learning involved, look to The Seas with Nemo & Friends at Disney’s Epcot Park.

    In addition to a fun ride surrounded by Nemo and friends and the popular, interactive Turtle Talk with Crush show, The Seas is also home to a 5.7-million-gallon saltwater aquarium with some pretty spectacular marine and aquatic life.

    With sea turtles, sting rays, dolphins, manatees, and incredible numbers of fish, I could stay there for hours talking to the experts found around the aquarium.

    Some fun facts about The Seas:

    • The aquarium is so large you could fit the entire Epcot ball inside and still have foom to drive a Disney bus around it.
    • The aquarium is 26 feet deep and 203 feet in diameter.
    • The aquarium is the second-largest the United States, just behind the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta.
    • More than 42 species and approximately 1,200 animals call The Seas at Epcot their home.
    • The aquarium windows are made of acrylic and vary from 5.5 to 8 inches thick, and are held into place by water pressure.
    • Water temperature varies between 75-78 °F

    And in addition to the fish and animals, be on the lookout for Hidden Mickeys in the aquarium. In past visits, I've seen a Hidden Goofy, too.

    The Seas with Nemo & Friends is a fantastic place to sneak in some learning while you're on vacation.
