The Living Seas was the original attraction in Epcot’s Seas Pavilion. It occupied the space where Nemo and friends can now be found, running from 1986 until  2001. It was dedicated to ocean life and marine conservation. It actually consisted of a few rides and features including a preshow film, the famous Hydrolators and a Seacab ride similar to the Nemo ride that replaced it.
