An underwater adventure awaits you at Disneyland.
With the recent addition of the Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage attraction, guests at the Anaheim, Calif., park can now board the completely remade, electric vessels and take a ride based on the hit Disney-Pixar animated film.
Become part of the sub crew as you are immersed into Nemo’s world. The characters from the movie — including Nemo, Marlin, Dory, Crush the turtle and Bruce the shark — are the stars of the show, as you ride alongside them beneath the water and end up at the site of an erupting undersea volcano.
The Disney creators, called Imagineers, have used new imaging technology so the characters appear to be three-dimensional as you peek at them through your own porthole within the submarine and listen in on their conversations. There are animated scenes and animatronic characters to entertain you, and the sub dives to a colourful coral reef that is visually stunning. But the erupting volcano is the highlight of the journey — a truly spectacular visual effect that will delight young and old.
The Finding Nemo ride uses eight subs that are original vessels from the retired attraction, Disneyland Submarine Voyage, that opened in 1959 and closed in 1998. The lagoon has remained within the park’s Tomorrowland, and now houses the Nemo adventure.
