    All EIGHT Subs are out in the open, and Rock*It Mountain is confirmed

    On the way to take photos of the Subs today, on the Monorail going into the park, the Driver mentioned the upcoming changes to Pirates, PLUS the fact that there would be a new Night Time attraction at Space Mountain (he did not use the term Rock*It Mountain), but it is the first time I heard a Disneyland CM talk about the attraction in a public forum (using the Monorail Microphone going to all the cars). So I would PRESUME that both attractions will be available to the public on June 26th.

    Also, it looks like the change in drop sequence will NOT happen to ToT in 2006, but more than likely will be offered in 2007, when Finding Nemo and the new Monorails open in May.

    As for the photos, here is a look at all eight subs from this afternoon....

    Interesting... Thanks for the update. Can't wait to take a spin on Rock It Mountain later this summer!

    Is it just me or does the water on the red wood look like blood? Also, is Rock*It Mountain (with the asterix) the official spelling?

    Thanks for the pictures, Darkbeer! I am so excited about Rockit Mountain. I am looking forward to Pirates but I hope that the ride doesn't feel to much Jack Sparrow of the Carribbean.

    Oh, me too! I'm fine with the update, but I don't want to see Jack everywhere- if you know what I mean. By the way DB, great pictures as always!

    Let me add one comment. If you look how they placed the Subs in the Loading area, and the side spurs, the one sub that was placed near the new show building (between the new building and the cavern), it should remain there for about a week for testing new effects, then moved to the third loading dock location (now empty) prior to the water being pumped out of the lagoon. The Subs will remain in the Loading area and Side Spurs for the rest of the year, while they continue to make changes to the lagoon (once again dry) both in the now empty caverns, and the Main lagoon area (including placing the new guiderail).

    Do you know what kind of effects they will be testing? I am looking forward to when the lagoon and the showbuilding itself take on more shape. It is going to be exciting!

    It does! See, this is what happens when you take you love of the Subs TOO far.

    Great pics, Darkbeer. Allows me to live vicariously until 2008...

    since the wood is a red tint, the water looks red when it hits the wood.. Simple as that, so no, it's not blood, just water!

    Yes, that's why I asked "Is it just me or does the water on the red wood look like blood?"
