Finding Nemo - The Musical reviews
Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Finding Nemo - The Musical, a live show in Dinoland USA at Disney's Animal Kingdom.
Written by Robert Niles
Featuring elaborate puppets, manipulated by singers, this version of Finding Nemo is a live stage adaptation of the Academy Award-winning Pixar movie, featuring original songs by the Tony Award-winning composer of Avenue Q and Academy Award-winning composer of Frozen, Robert Lopez. Check the day's show schedule for times, then plan to line up 15-45 minutes early for seats, depending upon the size of crowds in the park that day.
Love this show !! - Owen Scott
This replaces Tarzan Rocks that was above and beyond this puppet show. - O T
I instantly regretted choosing to watch this show with my wife. We were looking for the exit halfway through the first song. - Jacob Sundstrom
The production is top notch, as to be expected. Even so, the show plods along and never quite clicks. Maybe it's because the film had no music, but none of the new songs for this musical really work well or are even memorable. The Festival Of The Lion King and Beauty and the Best at Hollywood Studios are far superior overall. - Jeffrey Rickel
This is the first Disney Musical my family has ever seen and we absolutely loved this attraction. It was probably one of our favorites out of our whole trip. The only problem was by the end of the show my ear drums were thrumping because it was so loud in there. - Meg T.
Our family loves this show. It's a must see every time we visit. - Don Neal
I just didn't get it. We usually love Disney stage musicals, but this one was boring to sit through. Tunes are forgetable. - Rob Pastor
IMO this is a stronger show than FotLK, but both are extremely well done. - Sean Huckel
Utterly insufferable. Imagine a High School am-dram society given funds and regular performances and you are half-way to understanding Finding Nemo: The Musical. Avoid, avoid, avoid. - Man-Eating Sharks
Ughh... This show is an embarrassment to Animal Kingdom. Bad singing and also a very bad film to make a musical out of. I would prefer something that doesn't make me cringe. I rarely use the word but this is Lame. 2/10 - D H
Very impressive show. - Mostly Anonymous
