Hello from EPCOT!
We’ve been wandering around the park soaking up the Flower and Garden Festival and enjoying the Pride Month snacks — and today, we made a pit stop at The Seas Pavilion! You may know this area as home to The Seas with Nemo and Friends ride…but did you know there’s also a MASSIVE aquarium? And when we popped in, we noticed quite the scene unfolding.
This aquarium features a tank with 2 rescued manatees — and it’s lots of fun to visit them! But today, we realized a guest had dropped something inside the tank.
Cast Members didn’t specify what had fallen in, but we watched them act quickly to get it out. A scuba diver used a lamp and light to sift through the sand at the bottom.
When that didn’t work, they hauled in a vacuum!
We watched as the vacuum was used to sweep up whatever was resting at the bottom of the water. Then, everything went back to normal! We felt a little bad that the manatees’ day had been disrupted, but the misfortune was resolved pretty quickly. A word of advice? When you’re visiting these pals, keep track of your belongings so they don’t fall where they shouldn’t!
It sure is interesting to get a peek at what goes on behind the scenes at Disney. We’ll keep showing you more interesting things we find in the parks, so stay tuned to DFB!
