You must spread around some reputation before giving it to DLandFansAZ again.
Such a great story matman730! The SV was one of my favorite rides as a kid and one that I remember pretty distinctly compared to other attractions that have since moved to Yesterdayland. I remember the first time we returned to DL and found the subs had closed for good and I was so upset. There were rumors of a Little Mermaid attraction in the works but of course nothing ever came of that. I always thought it was such a waste to have the lagoon sitting empty so I am happy to hear of all the progress with Nemo. It will never replace the SV in my heart but it will at least put some prime DL real estate to good use.
PS - AWESOME shirt DLandFansAZ! That is a great piece of park memorabilia that many of us would LOVE to get our hands on!
Who here remembers feeling a sense of shock when they find an attraction has closed? I remember feeling it when Motorboat Cruise, Skyway, PeopleMover, and the Subs each closed.
It's still sad to go to Disneyland and see the old skyway station sitting up in the trees. It's also sad to see the Peoplemover track without a Peoplemover on it. At least the subs were saved. 2009: Matterhorn, Monorail, and Subs all turn 50! At least the Matterhorn gets a refurb on a regular basis. New monorails. Restored subs with an all new story. It will be like Disneyland's Second 50th Anniversary (kind of how the opening day of the 3 attractions is thought to be Disneyland's Second Grand Opening)
