The Big, Blue World on Stage
Dive right into the heart, humor and characters of Finding Nemo with this musical version of the award-winning Disney•Pixar film.
In this 40-minute show, original songs bring the big, blue world to life, along with extraordinary puppets and vibrant sets that plunge you right into the depths of Nemo’s fin-tastic terrain. Performed on a stage flanked by big bubbles, the musical numbers shimmer with wondrous underwater effects created with innovative lighting, dynamic props and animated projections.
Just returned from our 12th visit and have already booked up for 3 weeks next year. Perfect location in the middle of international drive with I Ride and Lynx stops right outside. Rooms big and very comfortable and the pool area is excellent. Zebras sports bar is a great place for a cold drink after a busy day in the parks. We really have nothing bad to say about this hotel and can’t wait to get back in 2019. See you all soon
