Finding Nemo: The Big Blue… and Beyond!

This the newly reimagined Finding Nemo theatrical show that took a brief hiatis to get some upgrades.

The 25-minute stage show incorporates live performers and puppets, along with many favorite production numbers from the original “Finding Nemo: The Musical.”

There is a new script, new set and an all new LED video wall to make you feel like you are under the sea!

The biggest part of the update to the set is a 32-foot-long sunken submarine and a 15-foot-tall fish tank volcano.

Festival of Lion King

Also making a return to Animal Kingdom is the full run of “Festival of the Lion King. ” 

While parts of the show returned in 2021, this summer, two of the most popular scenes are going to be coming back: Tumble Monkeys & The Soaring Birds!

Hello. Do you know how long Dino Bash will last? I'm heading to WDW in January and I'm dying for these costumes. Many thanks for your help. :)

Dessert cruise? That sounds right up my alley! Even better that it's to watch the fireworks. I've never been to Disney World but I would love to!! I loved Disneyland and Tokyo Disney Sea. Thanks for sharing about all the new additions in 2018.
