Discover Creatures of the Sea at the ‘Nemo Module’ at Epcot

posted on April 19th, 2011 by Gene Duncan, Photographer, Walt Disney World Resort


The Seas with Nemo and Friends Pavilion is a huge showplace for almost all things aquatic in Epcot. Containing one of the largest salt water tanks in the world, a delightful ride, hilarious shows and fascinating exhibits, not to mention a world-class restaurant, it is overflowing with entertainment and education for guests of all ages.

Last week, while working on a “people” photo assignment, I was drawn into what the Seas zoological staff refers to as the “Nemo module,” and I was blown away by the incredible assortment of aquatic life exhibits I found there. I only had a couple of minutes to take a few snapshots, but I thought I would share them with you. See how many of these you can identify and I will post their names at the end.
