EPCOT's The Seas with Nemo and Friends debuts a fresh color palette

Exterior refurbishment at The Seas with Nemo and Friends - September 28 2023
Posted: Friday September 29, 2023 8:16am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The Seas with Nemo and Friends pavilion at EPCOT is getting a makeover, which sees the light blue color covering most of the exterior replaced with beige.

As part of the exterior refurbishment, the squawking "Mine!" seagulls have been removed, and the water splash effect is currently deactivated. Some of the fish on the mural wall have also been removed.

The new paint scheme at the exit area is mostly complete.

The work on The Seas pavilion is taking place just ahead of the official opening of Journey of Water Inspired by Moana in the coming weeks - completing the World Nature neighborhood.

Removing the Nemo type would be such a huge upgrade

I’m holding out hope that they replace that awning/entrance sign out front. Making it match with the new signage aesthetic would be pretty nice.

Would like to see before and after pictures because I have the worst memory and can't remember any details like paint color

It was a pipe dream, but I wish the original mural did come back. Regardless this is an improvement!

The seagulls are back. They heard you, @JustInTime. Also, the Nemo characters are slowly coming back to the mural, having been repainted. Via the site we don't say:

Not sure why people don't understand that seagulls sometimes go even further south during the winter than Florida...they are probably in Mexico or something getting their tan on. Relax!
