Premiering on June 13, 2022, Finding Nemo: The Big Blue... and Beyond! is essentially a streamlined version of its predecessor, Finding Nemo—The Musical. This is arguably the most elaborate live show in any Disney World theme park. Incorporating dancing, special effects, and sophisticated digital backdrops of the undersea world, it features on-stage human performers retelling Nemo’s story with colorful, larger-than-life puppets. To be fair, ”puppets” doesn’t adequately convey the size or detail of these props, some of which are as big as a car and require two people to manipulate.
A few scenes, such as one in which Nemo’s mom is eaten, may be too intense for some very small children. Some of the midshow musical numbers slow the pace, so the main concern for parents is whether the kids can sit still for an entire show. With that in mind, we advise parents to catch a pre-lunchtime performance—around 11:30 a.m. would be great. If the kids get restless, you can either leave the show and have lunch, or head back to your hotel for a break.
New Jersey drama critics have their own way with words, as this family of five demonstrates:
The Finding Nemo musical is da bomb! The musical was amazing! It’s a flawless package of puppetry, effects, music, and lots of Disney magic!
