Located in Epcot’s Future World, The Seas with Nemo & Friends is another attraction with an accessible ride vehicle. It is very easy to get on and off so even though it is not my favorite attraction we tend ride almost every visit.
Location: Future World in Epcot
Height Requirement: Guests Can Be Any Height
Accessibility: Must Transfer from ECV to Wheelchair, Wheelchair Transfer Not Required
Who Should Ride: Great for all ages but may not be for you if you are afraid of heights or experience motion sickness.
At The Seas with Nemo & Friends, you enter through the standard queue or through the FastPass+ line if you have one. The wait times tend to be pretty low. We don’t typically get a FastPass but if you are visiting during a busy time of year you might want to consider it.
Both queues are fairly long and their way through the building. There are also a lot of switchbacks so be prepared to stay alert. Some of the turns may be a little tight and there are few inclines. It is also dark. It always takes a few minutes for my eyes to adjust.
Once you get to the end of the queue a Cast Member will ask if you would like to stay in your wheelchair. Most of the time you will have to wait for the accessible ride vehicle to cycle through the attraction. If that happens they will ask you to wait to in an area across from the queue until it arrives. It doesn’t usually take very long though.
Once the ride vehicle arrives, the Cast Members will lower the ramp for you and slow the ride down a little bit. It is not a very steep ramp and it was easy for me to use. Once you are on lock your brakes and the Cast Member will spin you around so you are facing forward. Once the ride is over the Cast Members will slow the attraction down again, spin you back out, and lower the ramp. You’ll be going backwards so they can help guide you if you need them to.
The Seas with Nemo & Friends is another attraction that is easy for wheelchair users to experience. It’s also a great place to get out of the Florida heat for a while and cool off. Make sure you take time to visit the aquarium after you experience the attraction. I always love visiting the sea turtles and manatees.
Disclosure: I was invited to attend an event at Disney Springs. I was also given complementary tickets to visit the parks for one day. Travel expenses and our hotel were at our own cost. As always, all opinions are my own!
