Good morning! This day in Disney history, July 20th, 1955: The Tomorrowland Boats, later renamed the Phantom Boats, open at the Tomorrowland Lagoon, roughly where the submarine lagoon is now.
The shortest-lived attraction and the first to be permanently closed at Disneyland (August 1956). Kind of like a aquatic version of Autotopia, it was originally designed for young pilots to put around the lagoon.
The 14 gas-powered fiberglass boats were poorly designed, especially in the engine compartment. Because the engines were enclosed, they overheated often & threw off a lot of smoke. The Park tried to remedy the overheating problem by assigning CM's to drive the boats. Unfortunately, the boats were not very popular and the park lost money on them. On busy days, the boats required 14 CMs to operate (to avoid the overheating), with each boat carrying two or maybe three guests at most.
The photo below is most likely from mid spring, 1956 since park guests are driving. When the attraction opened in 55 the banks were dirt. You can see the original lap, with the marked course around the islands. Also, notice the boat that is broken-down, with a park CM's coming over to try and fix it in a Jon boat. LOL
I'll admit, they were pretty stylish looking, those bat-ray style tail fins were RAD! Don't ya think?
Did you ever get to enjoy this attraction? Or know someone who did?
Reminder to check out the new "Freeze the Night", apart of Frozen Fun in Hollywood Land every night.
unForecast Crowd Prediction: Expect it to be busy this week, Monday and Tuesday, with CIs in the 80s in Disneyland Park and in the 70s in DCA. Christmas Eve and Christmas Day are hard to predict, crowd wise, as it is sometimes busy and sometimes crowded. Then expect it to be busy the rest of the weekend.
