Visitors will shrink to Dory-size on Disney's new 'Finding Nemo' ride

Pandora and Guardians of the Galaxy surely are getting all the attention from Disney theme park fans in the United States, but let's not forget that Disney has a new attraction coming to Toyko DisneySea next month, too.
Like Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout, Nemo and Friends SeaRider is a retheme of a former ride attraction — this time, the old StormRider 4D show. Instead of venturing inside a Category 5 typhoon, guests now are visiting the Discovery Bay location of the Marine Life Institute from Finding Dory. Disney Imagineers explain the changes to the attraction and what visitors can expect, in this new promotional video from the Tokyo Disney Resort.
If you were a fan of Adventure Through Inner Space or Body Wars, this one's for you, as Disney is revisiting the trope of shrinking the audience to visit a smaller-scaled world. You will be boarding a 122-seat "SeaRider" vehicle that will be shrunk to the size of a Blue Tang fish, to allow you better to observe the marine life around the institute.
Of course, along the way, you'll just happen to swim across several of the famous characters from the Finding Nemo franchise, sending you into a new, five-minute adventure with the beloved characters.
Nemo and Friends SeaRider opens officially May 12 at Tokyo DisneySea.
