It goes beyond being an homage to the original, it's more as if Nemo is a remix.
There are innumerable references to the original. Sometimes as direct quotations: "Through our sonar hydrophones we can actually hear the fish talk," or as simply as recycled iconic sound effects from the original soundtrack.

Does anyone have a clear pic of the serpent/mermaids?
I've only managed to get on the attraction once and even though I was watching out for them at the end I didn't catch them (and I've never seen a clear shot)
The dialogue in the beginning as you're leaving the port is pretty much taken straight from the original attraction. things like "ship rigged for getting underway" sounds like it's so australian but it was the original dialogue. There's also taking the sub down to 8 0 phathoms which is then followed by using the hydrophones to actually hear the fish talk.. only the former "rrwaweaaww" sounds are suddenly interrupted by a clown fish looking for his son
In the scene with Nemo & Squirt at the beginning, then Marlin says: "Oh no, lost again... NEMO!" then the next dialouge from the 1st mate says: "Captain, we're approaching the EAC". Depending on how your helmsman is driving sounds like "Captain Nemo".
It's probably not an offical tribute, but I thought that was kinda neat.
The mermaid appears before the sea serpent does. Her hair is made of seaweed.
Another tribute is the "deep sea volcano" scene.
The sea bass in the lagoon I believe is from the original. Most people mistake it as a shark.
The lost city scene in the lagoon is a tribute to the lost city of atlantis scene from the original.

How so? Just the fact they are there?
