In our opinion, Finding Nemo – The Musical ranks up there with The Festival of the Lion King as the best live stage show/musical at Disney World. And like its counterpart, performances of Finding Nemo are held in Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park. Just head to the Theater in the Wild (DinoLand U.S.A) at least 25-30 minutes before showtime and you should be seated without a problem.
This 35-minute live musical is based on the beloved Disney·Pixar’s animated film Finding Nemo (2003). The stage show is performed six times daily and its 14 original musical numbers take direct inspiration from lines in the film, including “Go With the Flow,” “Just Keep Swimming,” “In The Big Blue World”, and “Fish Are Friends, Not Food.” Disney tapped Tony Award-winning director Peter Brosius and production/puppet designer Michael Curry (who designed puppets for the stage version of The Lion King, as well as Epcot’s Tapestry of Nations parade and Tales of Beedle the Bard) to create this magical production.
Like The Festival of the Lion King, no tickets or FastPasses are required for this show. The songs, cast, puppetry and digital backdrops of Finding Nemo – The Musical are captivating and magical. This stage show is one-of-a-kind and not to be missed!
