Turtle Talk with Crush

Turtle Talk with Crush is an interactive talk show type attraction that has appeared at several of the Disney theme parks. It first opened on November 16, 2004 at The Living Seas pavilion (later renamed The Seas Pavilion) at Epcot and later at Disney California Adventure in July 2005. The attraction opened in Hong Kong Disneyland from May 24 to August 10, 2008 as part of the "Nonstop Summer Fun" celebration. The attraction also opened in Tokyo DisneySea on October 1, 2009. Designed by Walt Disney Imagineering in collaboration with Pixar, the attraction consists of an improvisational, real-time conversation with Crush, the green sea turtle from the 2003 Disney•Pixar film Finding Nemo. A similar version is also featured in the Animator's Palate restaurant aboard Disney Cruise Line's Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy cruise ships. In addition, another Turtle Talk with Crush unit was donated to the new CHOC Bill Holmes Hospital by Walt Disney Imagineering during early 2013 to entertain the child patients and their siblings. This was the first attraction created by Imagineering to be placed in a non-Disney environment, but is operating twice a day by volunteering Cast Members (currently suspended since 2020). It was featured in the advertisement for the new Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage submarine-shaped tour in 2007 before the ride opened to the public in 2007.
