Beginning this summer, characters from Disney-Pixar's "Finding Dory" will be joining Turtle Talk with Crush. Guests will see Dory, Destiny the whale shark, Bailey the beluga whale, Hank the "septopus," Squirt, Nemo and Marlin!
"Turtle Talk with Crush" is fantastic. The Imagineers have created an amazing technology giving an animated version of Crush the ability to have real-time conversations with the audience.
You're ushered into a small theater. There are benches for the grownups to sit on, while children are encouraged to sit on the carpeted floor close to the screen.
A Cast Member hosts the session and it begins with everyone calling for Crush to appear. When he makes his entrance, he can "see" the audience. Crush makes comments about the "dude with the orange shell" (the color of the kid's shirt), when pointing out a child, much to their delight.
The children are encouraged to ask questions. In our session, we also played "hide-go-seek" and were taught "dude-speak." Since this is a live interactive chat, each visit is different.
Dory drops in. While she doesn't interact with the audience the way that Crush does, its a funny sequence of events that she sets off.
While the focus is on the kids, grownups will be just as enchanted by this attraction. It's incredible to watch, and Crush is amazing. Everyone leaves with a smile.
Handicapped Accessibility: Guests may remain in wheelchairs and ECVs.
