  • [Question] Location of 20,000 Under Seas exhibit

    Could any tell me the exact location of the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea exhibit when it was at Disneyland from 1955 to 1966? I thought it was in the location currently used by Star Tours. Thank you!

    From old maps that I have seen it looks like it was where the Startrader currently resides.

      yes, it where Star Tours is now, and it shared the building with the Hall of Chemistry on the left, the 20,000 leagues exhibit in the middle, and Fun Foto on the right.

        Actually, the entrance was right where the inside overflow waiting/ line area of Star Tours is right now (to the left of the actual entrance. That area was not originally enclosed. It only had a ceiling. The doors to the attraction were located where the back wall is now in the waiting area. That area became a stage for entertainment during summer evenings.

          A couple of fun links on Disneyland's 20,000 League's Exhibit:

            I think you misread my post. I said it was in the middle of the building where the circular roof was, which where the Star Tours overflow queue is now.

              I understood your post. I wasn't disagreeing with you. just filling in more detail. I spent many hours inside that attraction.
