For TBT: This was taken in 1989, while I was working at the Number 2 Dock at Submarine Voyage...boy a lot has changed! Our docks were manual and had no hydraulics for the ramps...this was all upgraded per OSHA when Nemo came into being, and we were an all male crew similar to Jungle Cruise and Canoes back then. Skyway was still there as was the Motor Boat Cruise and Autopia was separated into Fantasyland Autopia and Tomorrowland Autopia.

My time on Subs (1987-1989) was a lot of fun! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 6:45AM
such a great pic, thanks for sharing! because I don't have a sub sticker or CM sticker, but FROG! haha. - FrankenweenieVelinee  3013.9 #44 6:34AM
Cute! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 6:46AM
FrankenweenieVelinee I just sent you a CM sticker.  Sorry, I don't have a spare sub sticker.... - debbiev  1170.7 #151 9:37AM

Cool  - iLOVELUCYnDISNEY  951.4 #196 6:44AM
I still am in contact with some of the CMs I worked with... - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 6:47AM
jealous ^^ : ) - FrankenweenieVelinee  3013.9 #44 9:35AM
Wow. I didn't think 1989 was so long ago. But I guess it was. - Taunton  983.4 #190 7:15AM
25 years ago...one of my old leads is still a CM, I make it a point to see him every trip! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 7:21AM
I was there that year...I probably went on the subs and you were working!  What an awesome throwback pic!!   - DisneyDavidEMT  2626.6 #50 7:23AM
It was a great time being a CM my senior year in high school and then through college! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 7:58AM
Soo cool! You look so spiffy. Β What is an 'all make crew'? Thanks for sharing a great piece of history. - misschurro  6361.5 #17 7:25AM
I meant "male" crew, I shall edit... - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 7:59AM
Edit done HMACIF! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 8:01AM
Ohh! I was thinking "all make crew" meant something like nothing was automated for you. you had to do all the work yourself πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - misschurro  6361.5 #17 9:27AM
I just had to make sure to run the sub in sync with the taped part of the spiel, not hit the sub in front or in back of me, and of course make sure my hatches were closed and sealed so water from the falls didn't leak in and get guest wet... - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 9:52AM
Nice! Such a great picture! - Bunnie  541.2 #381 7:30AM
Thank you! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 7:59AM
Love this!  What a fantastic picture of your times at the parks. 😍😍😍 - DisLUVney  632.3 #320 7:30AM
Thanks!  You should see if you have any from your days! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 8:01AM
I don't think I do have any pics of me working....only as a guest  :( - DisLUVney  632.3 #320 10:21AM
My grandmother found my CM ID card a while back, I hated my pic...do you still have yours? - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 12:20PM
I do have that still at least. :) - DisLUVney  632.3 #320 12:31PM
You could always post that for TBT - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 2:18PM

- adisneyfamily  1003.9 #187 8:29AM
We must be the same age.  I'm class odd 89 as well.  It doesn't seem that long ago,but when you  talk about all those changes or sure does seem like a long time ago.  Thanks for the pic and memories. - potatohead25  704.0 #273 8:34AM
Forgot my stickers.   - potatohead25  704.0 #273 8:37AM
Close, I graduated high school in 87...I started in 1986.  I'm 45 in September  - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 8:46AM
OK.  We're a year apart.  I'll be 44 in November. - potatohead25  704.0 #273 9:02AM
Where did 25 years go? How did this happen? #classof87 - RadiatorSprings4Ever  1566.1 #107 2:29PM
Great picture and definitely a piece of Disney history. - Winnie111286  12301.5 #4 8:39AM
I can't believe how much has changed! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 8:42AM
Nice throwback pic , Mr bomb frog 😊😊😊😊 - pikarich  5229.5 #22 8:40AM
Thanks Pikarich! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 8:43AM
This is incredible. Thank you for the picture once a sailor always a sailor.  - Midasgold  633.3 #318 9:05AM
You got that right!  When I interviewed at Cast Calling, the CMs were smiling at where I was to be assigned because I had to request leave time for Navy training. - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 9:54AM
Total natural.  - Midasgold  633.3 #318 1:00PM

Thank you! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 9:55AM
Love the throwback pic, Frog!  I really miss that whole area the way it used to be, and I especially miss the skyway! - debbiev  1170.7 #151 9:48AM
I miss things like America Sings and Innerspace, but change is something that will always be happening especially since that is Walt Disney believed in... - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 9:57AM
Yeah, I know.  Sometimes I have to be dragged kicking and screaming into the present! Lol!  Maybe I'll post my throwback pic today in front of Innerspace. - debbiev  1170.7 #151 10:10AM
Loved Innerspace!  Please post debbiev.   - DisLUVney  632.3 #320 10:19AM
I used to drag my folks on Innerspace all the time as a mini! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 10:36AM
post that throwback debbiev DO IT! lol - FrankenweenieVelinee  3013.9 #44 11:05AM
DisLUVney FrankenweenieVelinee ok I will...twist my arm!😹 - debbiev  1170.7 #151 1:35PM
Yes!  Can't wait to see it debbiev :) - DisLUVney  632.3 #320 2:02PM
So awesome!! - MinnieMousewife  914.1 #201 10:40AM
Thanks! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 12:18PM
Wow! An awesome blast from the past. - RadiatorSprings4Ever  1566.1 #107 11:14AM
Thank you! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 12:18PM
When I had a stint at issue,  those slacks were often well fitted. 😳 - Butterlina  1570.6 #105 1:43PM
Too well fitted, had to wear plain white boxers not briefs...made me miss the dungarees we had! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 2:16PM
It was a bit odd to have to approach The gentlemen when they were sporting their Jockey Elanceβ„’ Colored Manties and ummm hey ummm I see London I see France.Β  - Butterlina  1570.6 #105 2:21PM
I just remember the first time I wore the whites that the outline from my briefs could be seen...a fact a female friend of mine who was a CM from Outdoor Vending couldn't wait to tell me - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 2:25PM
Very cool pic!  Thanks for sharing. :) - Mickeylover67  521.3 #400 1:56PM
Thank you, I miss not being onstage... - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 2:17PM
that is an awesome pic!!! i guess safety was not a big issue back then! - otilegna  2670.2 #48 3:36PM
Nope.  On rainy days it was hard to hop on a sub without slipping off... - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 3:49PM
ooh thats gonna be scary - otilegna  2670.2 #48 5:52PM
I'll admit to having a leg go into the water more than once but never went all the way in... - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 7:09PM
Great pic, love the sky tram in the background! - byoude  5.6 #17004 4:38PM
Thank you, my family used to come see me onstage all the time and mom always has a camera with her... - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 7:06PM
Love that era...in fact, I think that it was the best.  After a long wait, Fantasyland was "new", but all the classics were still there (and the motorboats were my son's favorite!).  I must admit that I miss the park as it was (although I still love it more than anything!). - msdizmaui  716.8 #270 6:59PM
I know what you mean...I used to drag my folks to the motor boats as a mini then later my youngest brother drag me there. - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 7:07PM
I agree. In a perfect would wish we could have all the old and new lands for all the great stuff of today! :) - piratelife4me  1047.3 #175 7:10PM
I remember when I was young my dad took me on Skyway 😊 oh how things have changed. - TheZaragozaFam  13.8 #0 7:06PM
Yes they have, but Disney is still a fun place to go! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 8:35PM
You worked with a friend of mine, Scott.  He would have been attending UCLA at the time.  - susieQzee  555.8 #366 7:31PM
I remember two Scott's on that attraction...both taller than me (over 6 ft) both thin build but one was a strawberry blonde while the other had brown hair.  The blonde was also trained on Autopia while the other was cross trained on Space Mountain while I went on to Star Tours. - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 8:39PM
Wow, you have a really good memory!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  613.1 #331 10:06PM
Those 2 Scott's started about the same time I did on Subs and during our first Christmas I brought Kona coffee to share with the other CMs on closing shift because it was really cold with the wind coming off the water plus we were always getting wet hands from opening the hatches.  I'm still in contact with 4 CMs from that attraction, I'm godfather to one's son. - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 10:31PM
He was possibly the brunette, although his hair was a light to medium brown.  I saw him working one day, which surprised me, because we had an awkward parting of ways (oh, high school "romance"), and it was too late to exit the queue when I saw him.  That uniform, though...  πŸ’œ  LOL - susieQzee  555.8 #366 11:02PM
And yes, tall.....varsity basketball tall. - susieQzee  555.8 #366 11:04PM
