    We are visiting WDW in 2 weeks with our 2 year old son! Yay! I was wondering if the Finding Nemo ride at Epcot has the same scary parts as the Finding Nemo submarine ride in Disneyland?

    Hi Aubrey,

    You must be so excited for your upcoming vacation!  I also have a two year old, and sometimes it's difficult to figure out what attractions will be TOO scary for them.  Especially, when dealing with an attraction that has such beloved characters, like Nemo.

    The Seas with Nemo and Friends, does have a couple of the darker elements that are found in the submarine ride at Disneyland.  Nemo does get lost from the group, Bruce makes an appearance, and the jellyfish are present.  However, I don't find this attraction to be as frightening for younger children as the attraction at Disneyland.  You are not enclosed in a dark submarine, rather you ride in individual "clam mobiles" that take you fairly quickly from one scene to the next. 

    The entire ride ends with a catchy tune and the animated characters swimming around with real fish.  You know your child best, but my two year old was able to ride this attraction with no fear.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!
