    Sign Basically Confirms Subs as Well

    Well, the years of calling it the "Tomorrowland Lagoon" are gone. Darkbeer grabed this great shot of the TL entry sign.

    Now if only they would announce that they had scrapped the whole Nemo thing because they found a way to make the theme actually fit TL.

    Oh well...It should be fun anyway. The 'diving' was always one of my favorite parts, and I can't imagine that they would get rid of that!

    Or maybe the budgets have been cut by eisner so badly that they had to get a sign out from the early 90's.....a much better time for DL

    Don't take it personally, but I'm so tired of this comment. There was nothing futuristic about submarines moving around underwater when Submarine Voyage premiered either. I mean, the subs were painted gray to match the real war vessels. There wasn't even any kind of message about how submarines will play a role in the future, like how the Monorail and Peoplemover were experimental forms of transportation.

    And yet, despite all this, it was good enough for Walt Disney.

    thats debateable. Could you say that a Rocket Jets is outdated since there is nothing futuristic about rockets......we've had them for more then 50 years? But the real thing is that a lot of people dont have the chance to experiance a real-live submarine.....nor rockets

    It was never about the subs, it was about sea exploration and what we could see in the future. It was very futuristic.

    Oh no! I better get out of this thread before a battle about the "futuristic"-ness of the Subs ensues! I've argued about it before and it can get ugly! Haha

    Anyway, nice picture... Hopefully its not just a crummy old sign from the 90s like mp3piratesavvy suggested. I can't wait until the subs are back -- Nemo or not, I'll be happy.

    I saw that sign yesterday and I actually did a double take at what it read. But I wasn't sure if it had just kept the name over the years even without the subs, so I forgot about it until now.

    Since the Subs closed, it was dubbed the Tomorrowland Lagoon, not the Submarine Lagoon. So it has been renamed.

    Um, I think basing your entire theory on this sign is a p*ss-poor idea. There are parts of the parks where thoughts are given to every detail (will the Prince look too "swishy" in a cape?), and then there are parts that no one puts much thought into at all. Especially something as semantic as a rehab sign referring to an attraction lagoon.

    Sadly, I think it's a stretch, and any reasonable person is 100% certain that TDA is not leaving a trail of clues about the sub's fate in plain sight like The DaVinchi Code. Of course it could be argued that all of us on these boards are far from sane and reasonable... so you know, whatever.

    This thread isn't about confirming that the subs are coming back, but rather, discussing the fact that the name of the lagoon has been changed back to how it originally was.

    Plus, it's not likely that the sign was put on there by mistake or inattention because Darkbeer grabbed his photograph on March 7th, and I saw it still out there last night. If it was a mistake, I'm sure someone by now would have noticed and replaced it.

    I see your point but... um.. well... seems like a stretch.

    The sign is a good indicator of what's to come, at least as far as recognizing that the lagoon is for the Submarines. In the past (as in, pre- sub greenlight) the same sign would have referenced the Matterhorn as point of entry...

    It was always called Submarine Lagoon. It had always had to names!
