Did you know today’s Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia About The Water in the Seas with Nemo and Friends?
Do you add a little salt to your meal, how about a truck load? The Seas with Nemo and Friends (formally The Living Seas) takes a lot of water and salt to keep the Friends happy. But how much, let’s take a guess.
To get the water prepared how many truckloads of salt was required???
The recipe called for 27 truckloads of sodium chloride, or common table salt. Just a tad bit more than what comes on your fries. And some other fun facts, spaceship earth could fit inside the aquarium with room to spare. It is 203 feet in diameter, 27 feet deep and holds 5.7 million gallons of salt water. As you look in at the over 8,000 fish and other sea animals you are looking through 6 to 8 inches of acrylic windows. And, to keep all the friends fed they go through over two tons of food each week, yes each week.
Our Hidden Mickey this week was found in Epcot’s World Showcase at the Maelstrom attraction. As you are waiting in line to board the viking boats, take a look at the mural on the wall. We had heard there were a few in this mural and with the help of our friend Steve the Hidden Mickey Guy, we were able to finally find them and grab a shot to share. This one is our favorite, pay close attention to the hats. A close up is available as well to help you spot it, we will be featuring more in upcoming posts.
In case you don’t see it, here is a closer view
If you love hunting for Hidden Mickey’s be sure to check out the Hidden Mickey Guy’s website and books available. Inside or Outside the park, let us know where you have spotted a Hidden Mickey.

The Wonders of Life pavilion opened their doors in October of 1989, seven years after the opening of Epcot Center and as New Years was being celebrated and welcoming in 2007 it closed it doors. Today it is used off and on for special events, one of these is during the Flower and Garden Festival, so you can still get a peek inside during these events.
The pavilion was dedicated to Body and Healthy style attractions. Including the following:
- Body Wars – this was the main reason we would visit the pavilion. Body Wars was similar to Star Tours at Hollywood Studios. The same ride system so over the past years parts have been used as replacements for Star Tours. The ride shrinks you down and puts you into the body to help do a white blood cell count at the location of a splinter. But, the doctor is pulled into the blood stream which sends you on a journey through the blood stream and into the lungs. Finally the team has to head to the brain to gain energy to repower the ship so you can leave the body.
- Cranium Command – this was a fun theater style show which explained the brain and it’s interactions with different parts of the body.
- The Making of Me – was a Martin Short movie about birth. Although funny, as a kid this was not on my must see list.
- There were also many play areas including my favorite the Wonder Cycles where you could pedal power a TV. Yep you would pedal a bicycle and the TV would come on, what kid wouldn’t find that cool. I really worked up a sweat.
I still miss Wonders of Life and wonder what attractions from the pavilion do you miss most?
While looking for Hidden Mickey’s be sure to look up and down as you walk through the parks. We found the one below in the Koi pond at Epcot in the Japan pavilion. On our last few trips we have really enjoyed this area and love watching the large and small Koi that inhabit the pond. But look close at the drain in the pond, notice anything familiar?

Today’s Hidden Mickey Monday is from one of my favorite rides – Living with the Land. As you pass through the greenhouses, pay special attention for some Mickey shapes. Yes you can find them in the pumpkins and other fruits and veggies, but also pay attention to how the colored plants are arranged. Take a look at this not so hidden extra large Mickey.
Leave us a comment and let us know your favorite hidden Mickey on the Living with the Land attraction.
