Turtle Talk With Crush is a popular attraction for all ages at Walt Disney World Resort. Although the engaging experience is primarily aimed at families with younger children, teens and adults also enjoy attending the Finding Nemo-themed event, which takes place at various times daily at Walt Disney World Resort’s The Seas With Nemo and Friends at EPCOT Park and Disneyland Resort’s Disney California Adventure Park.
In a recent TikTok video shared by Jonah Wendt, things went a bit sideways during a Turtle Talk With Crush performance. Wendt, who was being filmed by someone else in his party, used the hashtag #traumatizethechildren on his video, which features him asking Crush what he likes to eat under the sea.
Crush mentions he likes to feast on sea grass, which gives him his green color. The Finding Dory character then asks Wendt what his favorite food is, to which the young man replies, “turtle soup.”
This response obviously traumatized not only the youngsters in the audience — who undoubtedly had questions for their parents later — but Crush himself! Fortunately, the voice actor behind the sea turtle handled the situation with aplomb.

Guests never know quite what they will experience when going to Turtle Talk With Crush since the live event is not scripted and the Cast Member voicing Crush plays off of audience interaction during each performance.
