Who don't love Harper Goff legendary Nautilus? Nobody, probably...and this is why today you have on Disney and more a new photographic tribute to DLP's "Les Mystères du Nautilus" attraction. All the pictures are high-res wallpaper pictures, which mean they will do great wallpaper for your computer. Double-click on each of them to see and get them in high-res. However, please note that pictures of the inside may be a little bit less sharp than the one of the exterior, as no tripod was used.
Opened in 1994 thanks to the beautiful work of Discoveryland show-producer Tim Delaney and Nautilus specialist Tom Scherman along with dozens of WDI artists, sculptors, etc...the attraction is a delight for any Nautilus lover. Some of you, dear readers, never had the luck to visit DLP, and you should like today's visit of the Nautilus walk-through.
Here we go, and let's begin by some exterior views.
Before the entrance, guests can have a look to this Nautilus map.
Here is a picture of the entrance hallway where you can hear the voice of Captain Nemo welcoming you.
The entrance of the submarine, with the treasure room in the back.
The first room is Captain Nemo's bedroom. Here is different views of it.
The next one is the beautiful map room...
....where guests can also see a map of Vulcania Island.
Next room is the diving room - the diving suits were made by Tom Scherman himself.
We arrive then, in the famous Grand Salon of Captain Nemo where guests can watch a giant squid attack...
...and hear the sound of the organ...
...where Captain Nemo appear regularly.
Right behind is the Machine room...
And then the exit...
Guests go back to the surface by walking through this hallway.
Beautiful view of Discoveryland await them as soon as they go out.
Let's end with more pictures of the Nautilus outside.
There is a good video of the whole show available on Youtube, and you can watch it HERE
Hope you've enjoyed the visit!
And a big thanks to Daniel for his beautiful pictures!
