Duuude! This just in from the E.A.C. …

When Crush the sea turtle swims up to the “Human Tank” at either Epcot or Disney California Adventure park this summer, he’ll be joined by Dory and some of her new friends from Disney•Pixar’s “Finding Dory”! You’ll be able to meet Destiny the whale shark, Bailey the beluga whale and Hank the “septopus” (that’s a seven-legged octopus, of course!). Crush’s very own mini-man Squirt will also be swimming by for the first time, and you might even catch a glimpse of Nemo and his dad Marlin.

Disney•Pixar’s “Finding Dory” reunites everyone’s favorite forgetful blue tang, Dory, with her friends Nemo and Marlin on a search for answers about her past. What can she remember? Who are her parents? And where did she learn to speak whale? Directed by Andrew Stanton (“Finding Nemo,” “WALL•E”) and produced by Lindsey Collins (co-producer “WALL•E”), the film features the voices of Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Ed O’Neill, Kaitlin Olson, Ty Burrell, Eugene Levy and Diane Keaton.

Here’s a look at the latest trailer for the film:

“Finding Dory” swims into theaters June 17, 2016, and you can find all these new additions at “Turtle Talk with Crush” beginning in early-May.


  • Will this last for a while? Not sure when our next trip will be, but we won’t make it this summer.

  • DUUUUUUUUUUDE!!!!! Can’t wait to see Dori and friends for our Mega Memories Memorial Day Weekend trip!

  • This is Great news!! We will be in WDW the second week of May. Hope we catch it. Love the trailer, Love Dori, can’t wait to see it!

  • is anyone actually surprised by this?

  • So it won’t just be Dory showing up to teach whale talk, then? Nice to have the end cameos be something rotating and unexpected, like the unexpected destinations of Star Tours 2.0.

  • Will these new friends also swing by Turtle Talk at Tokyo DisneySea?

    • James – They won’t have made it quite that far by summer, but perhaps if they just keep swimming…
