    Thanks for providing us with all this info!

    I'm still confused as to why they're replacing Storm rider with a Finding Dory talk to the screen attraction when they already have Turtle Talk, which is also being updated to the new Finding Dory version?

    Love the sound of everything else though.

    The new Nemo ride will not be a talk-to-screen experience - just a Nemo themed underwater simulator ride.

    Well ... I figured Tokyo would get the characters. I'm surprised it took them this long as they eat that stuff up.
