I was just listening to Tony Baxter's interview at o-meon.com and it seemed like he originally wanted to use more stuff from the original attraction in the new ride but because nothing was maintaned for so long (thanks to pressler/harris) nothing except save for that one sunken ship was salvagable in the new ride.
So I was wondering, do you guys think that they will install more props and realistic sea life into the lagoon? It seems like something they could do over night or during a routine rehab. I really feel the beginning of the new Nemo sub is severly lacking in sea life. The old ride had turtles, lobsters, crabs, tons of fish and giant sea bass, eels, octopii, sharks, etc. etc. the new one has like 1 or 2 creatures littered here and there. It would be cool if they could hide a mermaid or a goofy sea serpent somewhere in the attraction (not just a coral sculpture)
