As we continue our look at The Seas with Nemo & Friends for our Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia segment, let’s take a look at some of the facts and figures regarding the huge aquarium! Before that, though, let’s say hi to my friends Heidi from Heidi’s Head, Jenn from Disney Babies Blog, and Jodi from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse!

The Seas with Nemo and Friends

  • Did you know that the aquarium inside the pavilion is 5.7 million gallons?!  At the time the pavilion opened it was the largest saltwater tank in the world.  That record has since been eclipsed by the Georgia Aquarium.
  • Did you know that there are approximately 8,500 creatures in the aquarium?
  • Did you know that Turtle Talk with Dude Crush was opened before the actual Seas with Nemo and Friends attraction?
  • Also, did you know that Turtle Talk has been replicated with great success at other Disney Parks, on the Disney Dream and Fantasy cruise ships, and even at the Children’s Hospital of Orange County?  This is the first instance of a Disney Attraction being placed in any non-Disney location!

The facts go on and on, but I think I’ll stop here for the night.  Do you have a favorite fact that I missed?  If so, please let me know in the comments section, and thanks for stopping by!

Little Mermaid

83 Days: Journey of the Little Mermaid

Hello, and welcome to Day 83 in our #DisneyWorldCountdown!  Today we are taking a look at one of the new attractions in the New Fantasyland section, and that’s the Journey of the Little Mermaid!  This ride is similar in nature to the Seas with Nemo and Friends, but the theming of course is based on the Little Mermaid.  If you have been to Disneyland, you will find that the ride itself is identical to the Journey of the Little Mermaid to be found in the Paradise Pier section of California Adventure, but the queue for the attractions are vastly different.  Because of that, I think that the Walt Disney World is a better overall attraction than the one at California Adventure.

Of course, simple because this is a new attraction at Walt Disney World makes it a popular attraction, and it’s not uncommon for the wait times to be be greater than 30 minutes.  When I wrote this post yesterday in preparation for today, the wait time was at 45 minutes.  That’s not terrible by any stretch, but it’s not short either.

What do you and your family think of the Journey of the Little Mermaid?  Have you been able to check it out yet, or will you be doing so soon?  Let me know in the comments please, and thanks for stopping by!
