Disney Photo of the Week: Living Seas

Deb's Digest Blog

While not an opening day attraction, the Living Seas grand opening was held in January 1986 with Michael Eisner, Diver Mickey Mouse and Diver Frank Wells.

In the early days of the Living Seas, you walked along banister lined curves that displayed historical photographs and artifacts of famous undersea explorations. Here was one the displays from the movie 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

Disney Pic of the Week: The Seas with Nemo & Friends

Photographic Innoventions by Scott Thomas

The Seas of the world are ever moving, always in motion. I really liked how Disney captured that trait of the sea at The Living Seas when it first opened and kept it with the re-imagined The Seas with Nemo & Friends in Epcot's Future World. The sign to the attraction sits in the middle of a rugged sea shore reminisent of the western United States. "Waves" randomly splash up onto the rocks around the sign. Sea Gulls from the movie, "Finding Nemo", declare nearby, "Mine, mine, mine" ad nauseam.

Disney Pic of the Week: The Seas with Nemo and Friends

Deb's Digest Blog

As Scott mentioned yesterday, the Seas with Nemo and Friends was an evolution of the Living Seas pavilion. The remake was quite refreshing offering new ways to learn about the sea and breathe life into what was once a tired, old poorly attended Living Seas pavilion. The overall theme is now tied into the animated feature "Finding Nemo"! It was officially dedicated in January 2007.

I love the themeing of this area outside and inside. One of my favorite exterior locations is where the Sea Gulls are... as they chant "Mine Mine Mine"..... Thus, my photo for Pic of the Week: The Seas with Nemo and Friends

Disney Pic of the Week: The Seas with Nemo and Friends

Photographic Innoventions by Scott Thomas

Like Test Track, The Seas with Nemo and Friends evolved from the original The Living Seas pavilion which opened with Epcot back in 1982. The popularity of the movie, Finding Nemo, made the transition an easy one for Disney. It was nice to see people of all ages enjoying this pavilion on my last visit.

Which character in Finding Nemo was a Yellow Tang and where did we first see it?

As I mentioned awhile back, I will be traveling to Walt Disney World a couple of times this year. My first trip is next month and I have planned an All Ears Photowalk around Epcot's Future World. The focus (pun intended) will be on these three photographic items:

  • Hyperfocal Distance or Hyperfocus (Landscape Mode)
  • Selective Focus (Portait Mode)
  • Using a Polarizing Filter

The Photowalk will be held on Monday, February 9, 2015, from 9:30AM to 11:30AM. Meeting location will be outside the Nikon Camera Center. The location is across from Spaceship Earth on the right side as you walk in from the Future World entrance. While you may attend by just showing up, if you think you will be at the photowalk, add a comment to this post. I will not be publishing the comments but will use the emails to correspond with everyone interested.

Before the Photowalk, I will be posting blogs about each of the items to be covered. Note, you do not need a polarizing filter but one will be demonstrated along with a special tip.

Disney Pic of the Week: Fish

Photographic Innoventions by Scott Thomas

Fish have been a part of Disney movies and parks from the beginning. No Disney fish have had a bigger impact then the characters from the movie, Finding Nemo. They became so popular, Disney Imagineers made over a whole pavilion in Epcot called The Seas with Nemo and Friends. Inside you will meet Nemo and his friends as you ride a clam-mobile. As you explore the pavilion further, you will find the real inspirations for the movie's characters in living reef displays. That is where I found a Blue Tang. Can you tell me which character this fish reminds you of?
