Good morning! This day in Disney history, June 11th, 1993: The Motor Boat cruise located on the the border of Fantasyland & Tomorrowland closes permanently. A B ticket attraction which opened in June 1957. The attractions bench seat was perfect for two adults & one or two small children. The center steering wheel made it easy for the whole family to take turns "driving". Similar to Autopia, the boats were on a track only these tracks were obviously underwater. :) Do you remember this attraction? Any memories you'd like to share? Ever wonder if Disney has any plans of using this waterway again?
Also on this day in 2007 The Finding Nemo Submarine voyage attraction opens in Tomorrowland. Replacing the Submarine Voyage attraction. (Opening day post coming for that attraction in a few days) A few environmentally friendly updates worth mentioning: Imagineers used recycled, crushed, stained glass to "paint" the scenes instead of the lead-based paint used in the original ride. Also electric power replaces the subs' diesel engines. For tons of photos of it's construction from start to finish: http://tinyurl.com/mcfga6f To read an interview with the Disney Imagineers who created the Finding Nemo attraction, which originally appeared in the Disneyland Backstage Pass Magazine: http://tinyurl.com/mduxkwb What do you think of this attraction? Have you had the opportunity to check out the observation deck yet?
