    From what I have heard the "bus" is more or less a showroom for Nemo. It is the newest Year of A million Dreams giveaway. If you win, you get to go backstage and you can pretend you are in the submarine voyage and on the sides the new show will be playing as if you are going through the entire ride. There is a new commercial that promotes being one of the first to ride Nemo. Now from what I have heard this is where they are sending the winners since they can't go in the submarines yet. Now can someone confirm this 100%?

    The bus is basically a Travelling Turtle Talk With Crush, one side of the bus opens up to show a large TV screen and the bus will driven across the country to promote the new ride and Disneyland in general.

    As for the YOAMD winners, 3 people will be picked early morning on Sunday, June 10th by the Dream Patrol and be invited to take themselves and three others (aka family members) to attend the Press Opening later in the day. They will be used as "props" during the Press Ceremony.

    How can there be a change of ownership - doesn't ESPN, and the ESPN zone restaurants, belong to Disney?

    maybe I didn't understand the question or the answer,
    but
    from how I'm seeing it
    Isn't the exit for the Sub ride pretty far from where the walkways are?
    They've been working on that area way before the green light on the sub ride.

    Thanks for clearing that up! Ill take your word over what I've heard. I'm getting really sick of this winning always going to random people who CAN'T CARE LESS about winning. So then how do you get to go see the bus or is that prize too?

    Great pics, Darkbeer! Is there any type of itinerary that's been announced? I haven't seen anything on it.

    The Sub Bus has not been announced, if it wasn't for my photos, it wouldn't be even discussed in public (Some CM's have seen it backstage in the last few weeks).

    Darkbeer, I tip my ears to you!

    I would think that they would start to publicize it soon, though. Maybe they're waiting until after May 19th and the Pirates premiere.

    Just a guess but I would say that the ESPN location at DD is a franchise. DD likely leases the building to the franchise owner. I am not sure that DD is owned by Disney. It may be an owner with Mall management expertise.

    Disney spreads the risk by making somebody else use their money to build everything, hire everybody and operate everthing and they get their franchise fees in return for the Disney affiliation.

    Not to be negative about ESPN but I USED to go there a lot. The formula 1 simulator was broken 4/5 of the time so I stopped going. Then my ESPN card with nearly $100 credit on it was zero'd out. It seems one has only a certain amount of time to use the credits. It had been about 10 months.
    That was it for me.

    Perhaps the new owners will operate their business more diligently.
