Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage is an attraction in Tomorrowland at Disneyland that opened on June 11, 2007. It uses the submarine vehicles, track layout, and location used by the Submarine Voyage, which closed in 1998. It is themed to the 2003 Disney/Pixar animated film Finding Nemo.

It is the much-larger sister attraction of The Seas with Nemo & Friends, an Omnimover ride at The Seas with Nemo & Friends Pavilion in Future World at Walt Disney World's Epcot.

History

For more information on the original attraction, see Submarine Voyage.

The Submarine Voyage, as it was originally called, opened on June 6, 1959. It featured eight "submarines" (actually submarine-shaped boats with the guest seating area below the water line), which sailed through Submarine Lagoon, past animatronic sea life, and simulated a trip under the polar ice cap. The attraction closed on September 9, 1998 after more than 39 years of operation.

After the attraction's closing, then-Disneyland president Paul Pressler promised a new attraction to replace the Submarine Voyage by 2003, and was long rumored to be based on Disney's 2001 animated film Atlantis: The Lost Empire, but 2003 came and went with no new attraction, a year after Paul Pressler stepped down to become president of The Gap.

Finally, on July 15, 2005, two days before the 50th anniversary of Disneyland, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts president Jay Rasulo officially announced the Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage at the newly-opened Turtle Talk with Crush attraction (which is also based on Finding Nemo) at Disney's California Adventure.

The current attraction uses the same subs and track layout as the original Submarine Voyage. Other than the addition of the projection screens, the only noticeable modification to the attraction was moving the entrance waterfall up quite a distance, reducing the amount of time the subs spend outside and necessitating lengthy closures of the monorail to allow construction of the show building extension to take place.

Throughout the first half of 2014, the attraction underwent its first "dry rehab" (a refurbishment involving draining the entire lagoon). At the time, there was speculation and fear that the "refurb" was not actually such, and that the ride, like its shuttered Floridian counterpart, had been quietly and permanently closed. Disney put various messages on the work walls promising a September return, and Bob Iger dispelled rumors of a permanent closure at a shareholders meeting, stating the attraction was "too unique" to be nixed.
