Disneyland's original Submarine Voyage Video tribute

When the subs opened in 1959, Disneyland's submarines were the 8th submarine fleet in the world as Walt liked to tell everybody. As we know the new ride based on Finding Nemo has replaced the old submarine ride, so let's have a nostalgic look on the original ride with these two great you tube videos filmed with talent by ParkHopper 10 years ago.

All aboard the submarines, and dive! dive! dive!

Disneyland's Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage - The Tony Baxter interview and behind the scenes Videos

Sue Kruse at Mice age have the big scoop today , with the very first review of the long awaited
Finding Nemo: Submarine Voyage ride. The 11 1/2 Finding Nemo: Submarine Voyage rideride is now open at Disneyland, and here are some photos of imagineers at work and a great Tony Baxter interview and behind the scenes videos, which include some video clips of the new ride.
Also, a short google video showing a scene of the ride. As the ride is pretty dark - and not open officially yet - it is hard to find a good video, but when i will find one, i will let you know.

I've added two more videos , one of the tv advertising for the ride, and one from you tube filmed by "Long time listener" showing the promotional submarine vehicle, stopping here is Seattle. Believe it or not, but there is more Audio-animatronic on the top of this vehicle than in the new Crush coaster ride at the WDS in Paris!

Also include a photo of the dedication ceremony of this actual one with Tony Baxter.
