My wife Kris and I had a chance to see "Finding Nemo the Musical" at the old Tarzan Rocks ampitheater a few weeks back. The show is excellent and will rival Festival of the Lion King as the top show at WDW. Get in line early as the center sections offer the best views with the sides offering a partly obstructed view (but still well worth the show). The musical has been called a puppet show but that description is a diservice because it’s much more than that. Cast Members, with live head mics, sing and manipulate large puppets some requiring several people. The sound is excellent and with the theater now fully enclosed, the lighting is top notch. The show we saw ran about 27 minutes but according to my son, a CM, the original versions were taking over 1 hour. After many revisions the final show evolved. It’s a must see at WDW.
While at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, after seeing "…Lion King" and Expedition Everest make sure you’ve built time in to see this show. Its target audience is the sub-10 year old range so it might be a big much for teens but as we get older we again enjoy the music and the experience. How they have designed "Bruce" the shark alone is worth the show. Not that I’m biased that "Bruce" is the star of the show! *grin*
A word of warning: Cameras nor video cameras are not allowed to be used, so tuck those away and enjoy the show.

Thanks for the update. I’m going to miss Tarzan and I’m glad they replaced it with a great show.
I know I’m a bit late in responding, but after seeing the show last week I have to agree with Bruce. It is amazing…just beautifully done.
