Disney rethemed its Living with the Seas ride in 2007 to bring in the characters from Pixar's undersea adventure Finding Nemo. You'll board a "clam-mobile" for a slow-moving ride through the pavilion's massive aquarium tanks, onto which Nemo, Dori, Marlin, Crush, Bruce and other characters are projected. Once your ride is over, you can linger in the exhibition areas to watch the many fish and sea mammals that live in the pavilion's massive aquarium. The original Living with the Seas pavilion opened in 1986, five years after the rest of the park, and featured what was at the time the world's largest indoor aquarium, at 5.7 million gallons of water.


A basic retelling story of the movie in a short ride. While it is nice for families, this dark ride is not much at all. I feel it's very cheap, and disappointing considering of how dated it is, and how it just retells the film's plot in a very boring, pointless way. While the ending is pretty neat, the queue is one of the best at the resort and probably the best part of the whole ride. It's definitely not a dark ride quite like The Haunted Mansion, Pirates, and Pooh. You'll end up loving the aquarium after the ride more. 5.5/10
The ride is dated. It basically retells the story of the movie, but it uses an interesting projection system to appear as if the characters are actually in the tanks. I like the fish after the ride (at the SeaBase) better then the ride itself however. I still remember when you had to take an elevator down...
This is bad. This is really bad. This is the second worst Disney dark ride I've ridden (the worst is next door). I hate rides that just retell the movie's plot, and this one does this in such a boring way. It just feels so lazy. I did enjoy the ending and the queue, but that's about it. I would certainly suggest you skip this one. Instead, check out the great aquarium that comes after the attraction. 4/10
This ride was SO boring. Skip it (unless you have little kids) and go inside to Sea Base.
I won't lie, this ride isn't great. It's a little dated and not all that fun, but you might as well ride it because the lines aren't usually crazy long and the queue and area after the ride are neat. I didn't hate the ride, but the ones at Magic Kingdom (such as The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and The Little Mermaid) are a lot better. So not a great ride, but still fun and a good way to get off your feet for a minute.
Overall - 5.5/10
This is a decent dark ride, with an extremely catchy song at the end. Its also short and to the point where kids won't get bored. Though the ride takes place in a dolphin tank which leads me to feel anxious and upset. Free the DISNEY DOLPHINS!
This is a disappointment coming from Disney. I don't think this is at all what Walt would have had in mind for an educational/tech ride about the oceans and giving it a Nemo facelift didn't help.
A good diversion for the little ones with AC for the parents. Don't go in expecting Haunted Mansion-level quality. 6/10
