Finding Nemo The Musical Not Returning To Disney’s Animal Kingdom


Recently I have seen the report that the ‘Finding Nemo the Musical’ show would not be returning to Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Now it seems that there is some confirmation coming from Cast Members of the show.

Katie Whetsell, who apparently is in the show, posted confirmation to her Instagram page:

It says:

Thank you so much to all of the guests and fellow cast members who made Finding Nemo-The Musical one of the most special experiences at Walt Disney World! This news is hard. All endings are. But out of them come new beginnings, and I know my gal Dory has taught me to look at fearful situations as an opportunity for adventure. So here’s to whatever comes next! Oh yeah, and the magic? The magic comes with us.

Following the #weswimtogether hashtag other people also confirmed it on their Instagram as well:

I loved being a part of this show.
I loved telling this story.
I loved playing a forgetful fish with a big heart.
You will always have a special place in my heart, Finding Nemo, The Musical.

I feel for the poor cast members. They’ve been waiting to get called back and now it’s just over. Hopefully they get called in for new rolls.
