If you’re visiting Epcot on June 8, be sure to stop by The Seas with Nemo & Friends and help us celebrate World Oceans Day, a fun and festive way to connect with nature and learn how you can help protect our planet. There will be special displays and activities throughout the pavilion in Future World.

Our education instructors and conservation specialists will be on hand to answer your questions and share how the Disney Conservation Fund is helping reverse the decline of at-risk animals in the wild, including, sharks, rays, coral reefs and sea turtles. You can also learn how cast members at The Seas with Nemo & Friends are working on Florida beaches and in The Bahamas to help protect delicate marine ecosystems.

If you get hungry, join us under the sea at Coral Reef Restaurant where you can purchase an exclusive white chocolate ocean-themed dessert developed specially for World Oceans Day.
