January 15, 1986 – The Living Seas Pavilion Opens in Epcot
“Snorkel with over 6,000 sea creatures, including sea turtles, angelfish, eagle rays and sharks in our massive aquarium.”
On January 15, 1986, the newest pavilion in Epcot’s Future World, The Living Seas, opened in Epcot. The area focused on the ocean and its mysteries, with guests able to watch a film about the importance of the ocean, view exhibits, and even take a chance to dive into the largest salt water take in the world. In 2006, more Finding Nemo elements were added to the area, including the attraction The Seas with Nemo & Friends. A special dining experience can also be found this pavilion at the Coral Reef Restaurant, where guests can dine right next to the salt water tank and spy a turtle as they eat.
