Disney has previously shared that the reimagined version of the show will pick up with some of the settings and characters featured in Finding Dory (2016) and that it will include select musical numbers from the original production, including “Big Blue World.”

The new show comes with a shorter runtime of just 25-minutes in length, and it will feature many of the same costumes from the original with an updated script, set pieces, and a new LED video wall. The video wall will be used to expand the setting beyond the limits of the physical stage, and among new set pieces, Guests will see a 32-foot-long submarine and a 15-foot-tall volcano.

Finding Nemo: The Big Blue…and Beyond will feature its traditional standby line along with Lightning Lane access for Guests who purchase Genie+ for their day in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park. If you are using Genie+, remember that Lightning Lane entry for shows only gives earlier access to seating areas, not access to an earlier performance as all showtimes are scheduled in advance.
