    How often do you think Subs will need refurb?

    Every couple years or so the Submarine Voyage was regularly refurbished. Now though, with the new Glass fused paint which won't fade in Chlorine and countless other improvements, how often do you think the Subs will need to go down for refurb??

    I think the expectancy level should be around 5 years with small 1 week refurbs to have divers repair AA's.

    What do you think?

    I agree. With probably a major refurb every 8-10 years (like Splash Mountain).
    I'm literally a born Disney fan! I was born at Providence St. Joseph Med Center right across the street from Disney Studios in Burbank. The same hospital where Walt died.

    Once a week and twice on Sundays! No, probably not. The show may not need many major refurbs due to the new materials they've used in their construction and the modular system for the smaller AA crabs and so on. But the ride system and guest accommodations will need regular repair. Attractions would work really well if it wasn't for the damn guests.

    DCA stands for Disney Construction Area. All the Cast Members are themed with hard hats and steel toed boots.

    I think they need one immediately to eradicate the infestation of tiny clownfish

    each month a sub may need out service for a inside paint job.

    check ones month the batteys and power system.

    the sea plants will need to be replace ones or two, three year.

    main rock color will mush longer.
