Manatee Finds New Home at Epcot’s The Seas with Nemo & Friends

One of the residents at Epcot's The Seas with Nemo & Friends might be the most well-traveled manatee ever.

His name is Lil Joe and the 25-year-old manatee has lived at several zoos and theme parks around the country.

He was first rescued back in 1989 in the Halifax River and his first temporary home was at Sea World in Orlando.

He went on to live in San Deigo, Cincinnati, and Tampa. In all, Lil Joe has lived in five different locations in his lifetime.


Guest Review of Epcot's Coral Reef Restaurant

Ambiance is the heart and soul of the experience at Coral Reef Restaurant at the Seas pavilion in Epcot. Picture this. You've just spent some time riding the EAC with Nemo and friends before meeting some real life aquatic creatures in the world's second largest salt water aquarium. You wind your way around the back of the building to find a little restaurant tucked away in the corner. Is it odd to look at fish while you're eating fish? Not really.
