  • [Idea] Move Finding Nemo to Fantasyland?

    What do you guys think about moving the queue for Finding Nemo closer to Fantasyland so it can fit in with a theme? Nemo fits in more with a theme of fantasy than a theme of the future.

    There is simply no way to accomplish this without changing the existing attraction and route, which I'm sure would cost more money then wanted. I think it's fine in Tomorrowland, it really doesn't bother me that much.

      It sits on the border of Fantasyland and Tomorrowland as it is..

        My neither. If they shifted the loading area to the other side of the lagoon that would be nice, but more work than it's worth.

          I don't see how this would be feasible. They would have to completely revamp the loading area to accommodate this change.

            Just scoot the Matterhorn north about 50 feet and use the parade route as the entrance to Matterhorn/Nemo/Autopia land.

            The spokes from the hub are disproportionate. The west side has Adventure land and Frontierland, and further in, NO Square, Critter Country, etc.
            The East is all Tomorrow Land.
            Feng shui anyone?
            With kind regards,

              Make it 47. I don't like round numbers.

                The easiest solution? Rename the whole park Fantasyland. It's headed that direction anyways.

                  I don't see how undersea exploration on a nuclear powered submarine is a better fit for Fantasyland than for Tomorrowland. It seems very futuristic to me.

                    Disney won't put $1 more than they're already spending on that ride. It'll get removed before it gets upgraded.

                      Just reprint the map to include the FNSV lagoon in Fantasyland. Matterhorn did the same thing decades ago, and IIRC the Tomorrowland Autopia criss-crossed with the Fantasyland Autopia so that area has already been rather fluid (no pun intended, but good for me).

                        i don't think it really matters. most people aren't paying attention to the theme of the land they're in, they just care about the ride, so it's not worth the money or time to change it.

                        but, for arguments sake, i agree with calsig that submarine exploration is more futuristic than fantasy.

                          We haven't even begun exploring the oceans bottom. That is to me a thing for Tomorrow, just like it was when the subs first went in.
                          I'm just happy the subs came back, even if it's the wrong Nemo!
                          Little and broken, but still good.

                            I consider Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage futuristic because of the back-story of the ride. You're part of this undersea expedition, and you're using a gadget to understand what fish are saying? Seems futuristic to me, seeing as how we aren't able to understand fish currently.

                              It's too bad that as soon as the exploration starts, a cartoon barges in.......

                              Especially when Crush comes along with his surf dude speak, very futuristic.

                                Finding Nemo and Autopia both fit better better in with the Fantasyland theme than Tomorowland.

                                But than again what current attractions actually do fit the "tomorrow" theme? See the following thread: Is *anything* in Tomorrowland futuristic?

                                easier then relocating the attractions (or their entrances) would be to re-theme Tomorrowland.

                                  Very true.

                                  I'm always on the fence though because even though they have the futuristic aspect you've just mentioned, the story itself is very fantasy-like. It would be awesome we were using a submarine to talk to fish (or Nemo Gang) in order to discover hidden areas of the ocean (& get into some trouble on the way).

                                  Instead, we follow a story of looking for a lost fish (like we haven't seen that before) & his cartoon-like encounters which for me take this Tomorrowland ride & makes it more like a cute, kid-friendly fantasyland ride.


                                  But I do enjoy the ride at least

                                    I almost wish that when Disney redid this attraction that they didn't do Finding Nemo and instead we explore the uncharted ocean. That seems more futuristic to me.

                                      Ride cannot simply be moved. Especially ones as massive as this. Yes, they did poorly attempt to make it futuristic with the fish translator, so it does technically fit the theme, but they definitely pushed it. Besides, moving the entrance would not take out the massive presence the ride has under the Monorail, which is obviously Tomorrowland.

                                      That being said, it doesn't fit in Fantasyland either. In the Disney universe, animals talk. That doesn't make it a fantasy by their standards. It's not a classic storybook, fairy tale, kinda film. So it doesn't belong there either. I think Adventureland would probably be the best fit, but Pixar has a way of not fitting into Disney lands. And while we're on the subject, NOTHING about Autopia is Fantasy. That doesn't work at all.

                                        I agree that the stupid cartoon fish needs to go. However, the concept of the ride is still very futuristic.

                                        Here is how I answered that question of Nemo from that other thread that you linked to:

Until then, it is still futuristic, they should just get rid of the cartoon and make this once again about exploring the ocean depths.
                                        If someone can point me to a company that is offering such tours then I will agree that the subs are no longer futuristic. Until then…
