    While this entire pavilion is worth a visit, the Pixar star to see here is Crush the sea turtle. The surfer dude turtle greets guests daily and will delight kids and parents alike.

Don't be surprised if your kids address you as "Dude" for the rest of the day after a visit with Crush!

    At the Seas with Nemo and Friends you'll also be able to spot a real life Nemo, snap a photo with an oversized Bruce the shark and learn about marine life and conservation.

    Tip: The adjacent Coral Reef is a very popular dining spot, as long as you don't feel too guilty about consuming seafood after meeting Nemo and the gang!

    Tip: This is a large capacity attraction, so plan on stopping in after you experience busier Magic Kingdom attractions like Dumbo and the Disney World Grand Prix.
