I have heard 2006 and 2007 from a couple of different online sources. I think we should all sit tight for the official target date to be announced at the 50th kickoff next week when Cast Member Matt tells the rest of the world that the Submarine Voayage is coming back to Disneyland.
Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.
What seems apparant from the various stories from Al and Jim Hill is that Matt and crew are building a longer term plan to roll out attractions over the next five years or so.
What a delight to see, long term planning! I think the merchandising folks that used to run the resort considered long term about 12 to 18 months. That is a time frame that is virtually impossible to budget and construct any type of meaningful attraction; E ticket or otherwise.
Two different worlds.....we live in two different worlds
Basically they wanted to please the people in charge so they could have an excuse to bring back the submarine voyage without completely ruining the old theme. The outside should be very similar and the sets will be integrated with the old stuff.
I would say 2007... because they love having as much testing they can get esp with these old vehicles... and train to get the hour guest capacity at max... so that begins in 06.. official dedication in 07...(and gives lee way for any postponent... (remember Test Track WDW.))
