These subs are quite popular lately since another thread mentions seeing them near The Living Seas. I'm interested to see what they will do with them, I like the idea of a few being placed in the rehab of Living Seas.
Disney has the dry docks for maintenance and storage on all the watercraft they have. I took a behind the scenes tour of it when I went to the Disney Institute (RIP) about ten years ago. If you get a chance, you should do the behind the scenes tour, they still run them under a different name and they are really fun for the 'mouse-heads'.
It probably is an old image but Space Mountain at Disneyland IS white again!
Take a closer look....it is about 2/3rd painted white...and DCA is already open with Tower of Terror almost complete. And if you look even closer you will notice that the holiday decorations are up on Main St and a Santa hat on the water tower at DCA.
My guess is the current google photo was Nov or Dec 04.
