The Voyage begins

Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage opens today, ending a nine-year vacancy in Tomorrowland's Submarine Lagoon. This morning's "resurfacing" ceremony follows days of "soft opening" previews for Disney cast members, annual passholders, radio contest winners, and lucky park visitors who happened to be in the right place at the right time; as well as a "blue carpet" arrival and celebrity party Sunday evening.

Spoiler warning: The following is a detailed description of the attraction, with photos. If you prefer to avoid all spoilers, click here to go to the next item in the Update. If you want all the information you can get your hands on, be sure to check out Thursday's MouseStation Podcast for more from the grand opening events.


The queue

Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage does not offer Fastpass. With little room to create the type of themed queue that other recent additions to the Disneyland Resort feature, the line begins under the Monorail track, winds through a series of switchbacks, and then stretches around the Lagoon towards Fantasyland.


The Nemo queue includes exotic-looking plants. Photo by Adrienne Vincent-Phoenix.

The extended queue was not utilized during previews, but current plans call for the line to snake as far as Mickey's Toontown. Disney has thoughtfully arranged to have outdoor vending units stationed along the line.

Closer to the entrance, a rock planter is surrounded with plants that are unfortunately too close to the walkway and have already been trampled.


These succulent plants can't stand up to the bruising of little feet. Photo by Adrienne Vincent-Phoenix.

Just past this area, a Cast Member groups passengers and directs them to one of three loading areas. Each submarine holds up to 40 passengers.

Fold-down ramps at the front and back of each sub allows access to the loading hatch. Passengers cross the ramp and enter the subs via a steep spiral staircase.

Each sub has two rows of fold-down seats. Each of the 20 seats has its own porthole, each outfitted with a vent that supplies fresh air. Speakers are concealed above the portholes.

Ride-through

As the submarine leaves port, your view is briefly obscured by bubbles. Your porthole clears, and you can see rock formations and colorful seaweed. The captain tells you that this area is popular with divers who are seeking exotic fish. From your porthole, you catch a glimpse of the first animatronic figure—Darla Sherman, the fish-abusing little girl from the film. You move past the scene quickly, but not before you notice that her latest catch is not smiling.


Darla proudly displays the catch of the day. Photo by Adrienne Vincent-Phoenix.

A crew member announces that a lost city is dead ahead, and the captain advises her to stand by for a weather watch (a nod to the narration from the original Submarine Voyage). The captain goes on to say that your destination is a newly erupting deep water volcano.


The lagoon is filled with coral reefs like this. Photo by Adrienne Vincent-Phoenix.

The sub continues to travel through what is described as the remnants of an ancient civilization. All around you see carved "ruins" that your captain says remained hidden until unearthed by a tremendous volcanic event. You pass another diver, and enter the coral reef.

A crew member warns that the radar indicates a surface storm, and the captain says not to worry, that they'll take the sub down "fast and deep." Bubbles obscure your porthole, and when they clear you find that you have entered a dark cave structure. The captain tells you that the sub's sonar hydrophones will allow you to actually hear the fish talk, and with that all resemblance to the submarine ride you used to know ends.

The first voice you hear is Marlin, calling for his son Nemo. Other noises and voices fade in and out, and then you hear Mr. Ray welcoming the "explorers." You pass another rock, and then you see the animated Mr. Ray and his class. Sheldon protests that they can't go exploring without Nemo, and Mr. Ray replies that they are sure to spot him any minute.


Not all treasure hides in chests. Photo by Adrienne Vincent-Phoenix.

This is a stunning effect, and even though you may know how it is created, it's seamless. The characters appear to swim behind and around rock, and there is never a point where the effect is distracting or unrealistic. If animated fish could swim in real water, it would look like this.

Just as you find Nemo in the next scene, his friend Squirt talks him into riding some "tasty" waves in the EAC (East Australian current). The captain advises the helm to take the sub into the EAC, and explains to you that the powerful flow of the EAC acts as a highway for sea creatures. Here you find Crush, and he leads the kids into surfing the EAC. You can feel the sub rocking a little in the current, but the physical effect does not match the force of the "current" you can see and hear outside the sub.

You can hear Marlin calling for his son, but Nemo and Squirt seem oblivious as they discover the wreckage of a boat. Sharp-eyed passengers may have caught a glimpse of Dory before now, but now she joins in the hunt for "Fabio." As Marlin and Dory bicker, and Nemo and Squirt frolic around the rocks, you suddenly come face-to-face with Bruce the shark.

Bruce tells you that there's nothing he likes better than canned food, but then you hear Chum and Anchor remind Bruce that "people are friends, not food. He also warns you be be careful of the "balloons" (sea mines) you can see outside your porthole. Just as you think you are safely past Bruce and friends, a bright flash erupts outside the subs - a mine has exploded, and warning lights fill the cabin. Take a quick glimpse at the ceiling during this sequence, and you'll see newly installed fiber optic effects.

The voyage continues, and you find that the sub is surrounded by mysterious blue lights. If you remember the film, you at the "pretty lights" belong to wicked-looking deep-ocean angler fish, and two of these monsters appear to jump at the portholes as your sub gets close. This entire sequence is immediately followed by a period of near-total darkness, and can be very frightening to young children who might already be a little apprehensive about being in such a confined space.


A diver photographs the ruins. Photo by Adrienne Vincent-Phoenix.

Nemo and Dory reappear, just in time to swim through a cluster (or a "smack") of jellyfish. They emerge unscathed, and Dory shouts that she's found a "hot tub." Through your porthole you can see bubbles that indicate you have arrived at your destination—the deep-water volcano. Nemo and friends are seen enjoying the periodic erruptions, much to the dismay of his father. Marlin is just ecstatic that he and his son "survived an erupting volcano," but all Nemo can ask is, "Can we do it again, Dad?"

As Nemo, Marlin and Dory are reunited with Mr. Ray and his class, Squirt notices a pod of whales. Nemo says that whales only eat krill, and Squirt replies, "so why is that whale eating that yellow submarine?" Suddenly you notice that you are passing what appear to be very large teeth. Squirt exclaims, "That's one hungry whale!" as you vanish into the dark.

Never fear—Dory arrives to translate for the whale and tells you to hold on tight. Your sub is expelled through the whale's blow hole, and Dory bids you farewell.

A crew member asks the captain if she should enter any of this in the log, and in another nod to the former Submarine Voyage, he tells her no—"nobody would believe it anyway." He goes on to say that the sub should return to the surface before you have an encounter with a sea serpent or a mermaid. If you look very, very closely at the rock formations outside your porthole during this exchange, you may be able to see another tribute to the old attraction.


The scary portion of the ride includes a visit from these deep water creatures. Photo by Adrienne Vincent-Phoenix.

With that, you arrive back at the pier a little under 14 minutes after you left. If there is a delay at the pier, your sub may sit in or just beyond the final cave until a space opens up.

Alternate viewing

The Marine Observation Outpost offers an alternative viewing opportunity for people who cannot or do not wish to board a submarine for the voyage. The outpost is located in a small room near the attraction entrance. The room has space to position two wheelchairs or EVCs, with a bench on either side that can each accommodate two or three more people, for a total of eight people per viewing.

The front of the room contains storage lockers for diving equipment, and is outfitted with a large flat panel screen. The idea is that you will be able to watch the video feed captured by a sub that is going through the attraction. The camera used to record the video appears to have been mounted facing out to the left side of the sub, so you get the same view you would if you were sitting on that side. The image is much wider than you would get through one porthole. The video in the Observation Outpost includes graphics that are not present in the real attraction, as well as a "depth meter" on the side of the screen.


The seating arrangement includes two benches and space for two wheelchairs or ECVs. Photo by Adrienne Vincent-Phoenix.

The presentation takes about 13 minutes plus load in/out, which means the capacity of the room is only a little more than 20 people per hour. Although the queue for Nemo is fully wheelchair-accessible, CMs maintained a separate queue for the Observation Outpost during preview days and the wait was rarely more than one show long.


The video is presented on a large screen, and gives a wider view than that available on the ride. Photo by Adrienne Vincent-Phoenix.

The Marine Observation Outpost is really an excellent option for those who may be concerned about the steep and narrow stairs or fitting on the narrow seats in the sub, dislike dark confined spaces, or are not sure how their children will react to being enclosed in the sub for an extended amount of time. The audience can exit the Observation Outpost at any time during the show, which is perfect if a small child becomes too frightened by the images.


The presentation includes enhanced graphics. Photo by Adrienne Vincent-Phoenix.

Unfortunately the limited capacity may create conflict between those who have physical limitations that prevent them from boarding the submarines and those who simply prefer to experience the attraction from the Observation Outpost, especially if the lines a grow too long. This may be the first time that the wheelchair-accessible version of an attraction is more interesting than the mainstream ride—you certainly don't see people clamoring to ride in the non-spinning Buzz Lightyear vehicle or in the wheelchair-accessible boat on "it's a small world."

More time to find Nemo

In an effort to handle the crowds expected to flock to see the new Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage attraction, Disneyland announced last week that they would create a "virtual 8th day" to allow more visitors to ride. guests will be allowed to join the queue until official park closing and the subs will continue their voyages to find Nemo for up to 2 1/2 hours after park closing. Based on the estimated capacity of the ride, (and assuming that all of the subs are running during the extended hours), this could allow more than 2,000 people to ride after the park closes each day.

To feed and entertain the people who may be waiting over two hours to ride, Disney has prepared an "activity guide" and games, and will keep outdoor vending locations near the queue open.

This-and-That

... A new guided tour called "Cruzin' Disney's California Adventure Park" will launch on this Friday, June 15. We'll have a review of the new offering in an upcoming update.

... A portion of the Downtown Disney parking lot is under construction to add additional disabled parking spaces to the lot.

... There have been many rumors surrounding the fate of the Bengal BBQ restaurant in Frontierland, but our latest and most reliable information indicates that the location will close, along with Riverbelle Terrace, on or around August 15. Riverbelle Terrace will reopen in the fall with an expanded kitchen and seating area as well as a new menu, but the Bengal BBQ as we know it will not return. There are plans to move some of the Bengal BBQ's most popular items to other food service locations in the resort. This might be a good time to try the breakfast menu at Café Orleans.

... Remy and friends are set to invade Café Orleans around June 29, and it looks like the former pirates performance stage outside the restaurant in New Orleans Square may return as a meet-and-greet location for Remy and Linguini.

... Construction continues on the Garden Walk project across from Disneyland, and vertical structures are visible.
