    That sounds great... I wonder if it's to replace the 'Tarzan Rocks' show that was cancelled last year... hopefully Nemo will be up and running when I'm there for New Years...

    Well, the only song with words is "Beyond the Sea" which plays during the end credits, but other than that, it only has the regular incidental music found in most movies.

    oh, and of course "just keep swimming" and a bit of the 20,000 Leagues under the Sea song.

    I wonder, does this mean "just keep swimming" will become a full-fledged stage number? hm...

    did anyone see Finding Nemo on Ice, did they add any songs to that, otherwise it'll be 15 min of "Just keep swimming, just keep swimming..."

    They are creating all new music for this show. The people that did the music for the broadway show 'Avenue Q' will be responsible for it.

    I'm looking forward to the show. I prefer the Nemo movie to Tarzan, plus I'm all for new areas to cool off at AK!

    Avenue Q? Really? This should be interesting then...

    I'm more excited now. I never saw the Tarzan show, but from the way everyone talks about it, I hope Nemo lives up to it.

    I personally wasn't a huge fan of Tarzan. I saw it once & thought it was OK, but not enough to ever see it again. I really hope the Nemo show is alright. I just personally think it's going to be really out of place. In between Dinoland & Asia?!

    Ok, I am a bit lost. Is this talking about the stage show in AK, or are they talking about a full broadway show? Somehow I think its just the AK show.

    Anyways, I was not a fan of the tarzan show. I wonder if there will be a full "Just Keep Swimming" song, I want to hear it!

    I'd go and see it. I think AK could benefit from a better show, JMO. So I am excited to see Nemo and his lucky fin.
    I am in need of some Disney magic!!

    I can't wait until the new show comes! It'll be a lot better because they are putting a roof over the theater because it always seemed a little bit warm there watching the Tarzan Rocks! show. Although the Nemo show won't be there when I go because I'm going in August and it is only expected to appear later in the year.
