  • Concept art for Finding Nemo: Submarine Voyage

    Below you can find concept art from the finding Nemo ride, posted at:

    It should be interesting to match up with the new landscaping going into place as part of the construction of the ride. I noted DarkBeer's pictures from months ago where dead fish and clamshell animatronics littered the landscape floor, and it already looks so much different! Enjoy:

    Note in this next picture the talking seagulls that were being tested a few months ago...

          You may not remember it, (and I wasn't there), but the same website had the following report:

          "Speaking of the "Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage" ride ... Some Disneyland guests reportedly got a surprise late last year when they strolled into Tomorrowland early one morning. Right after that theme park had opened for the day.

          "What exactly did they see?," you ask. Well, there -- sticking up over the construction wall that surrounds the old Submarine Voyage lagoon -- were two seagulls from "Finding Nemo." You know, the ones who continually cried "Mine! Mine! Mine!" in that motion picture?
          Anywho ... I'm told that the sculpting of these two test figures was particular impressive. But what really amused those early morning Tomorrowland visitors was when someone down in the still-dry lagoon accidentally hit the wrong switch. And then suddenly these two robotic seagulls began moving. More importantly, they began loudly squawking

          "Mine! Mine! Mine!"

          Evidently, what had happened is that the Imagineers had brought the two seagull figures into Disneyland to do a little after-hours testing. To see if it would be really annoying for theme park guests walking through this area to continually hear these robotic birds start squawking "Mine! Mine! Mine!" everytime a new submarine started sailing around the lagoon.
          While, prior to the first guests being allowed into the park that day, this

          "Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage" sound test was supposedly completed and the seagulls were then shut off. But then -- by accident -- these robotic birds suddenly got turned back on right after rope drop.

          I'm told that those guests who actually got to observe this event found it to be doubly amusing. Both because of the squawking seagulls as well as the sight of Disneyland managers frantically talking into walkie-talkies, saying things like "Can we please get someone to go down into the lagoon and shut off those birds? The guests aren't supposed to be seeing or hearing this."

          Evidently, after 20 minutes of repeatedly shouting "Mine! Mine! Mine!," the "Finding Nemo" seagulls were suddenly silenced and then quickly pulled out of sight. Those folks who actually saw these figures in action said that they were a great coming attraction for the "Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage" attraction. Which (just so you know) still isn't due to officially set sail 'til the late Spring of 2007."

            Hmmm.... I wonder if anyone can confim this report? It sounds fictitious to me.

              Jim Hill isn't known for posting fictitious reports, but I guess anything is possible. Here's the original link:

                I heard that story too. Never was verified.
