Interactive animated characters will play a major role at the Animator's Palate restaurant. The surfer-dude sea turtle Crush from "Finding Nemo" will make special appearances, swimming around the restaurant walls and engaging in live impromptu guest interactions. While Crush is moving throughout the restaurant, other characters from the film including Nemo, Dory, Squirt and Bruce the shark, swim by and visit with guests. The dining experience culminates with a surfing lesson led by Crush as the EAC (East Australian Current) swirls around the room. As Crush swims away, the other characters make a final appearance before turning into pencil sketches.
