    I don't believe it was him as he would have only been 24 or 25 at the time. Also, I don't think he started doing work for Disney until the late '60s, 10 years after the Subs' narration was recorded. Not to mention the voice didn't even sound like Pete's at all, either.

Then, with the help of my Dad, made a crude periscope and mounted it to a Radio Flyer wagon. You would sit in the wagon peering through the periscope at the murals while another person pulled you though the "ride" and the soundtrack played.

    As far as I was concerned, I was at Disneyland. Ah. The imagination of a child.
    That is amazingly awesome!!!

    Way back in the ancient days when I was a kid, my favorite game was to pretend going to Disneyland. When you only went once every couple of years, and there was no internet/Youtube videos to give you a fix, this was all you had to hold you. We didn't have the artistic skills like you mentioned, but I remember pushing friends in a red wagon, and narrating as best as I could remember all of the different attractions.
    You're bringing back a lot of memories for me!

    I don't know if we'll ever know who did the voice. It was 60 years ago this year when the soundtrack was recorded.

    20 years ago today the Disneyland Submarine Voyage closed. Nine years later, we got Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage.

    By the way, this upcoming September 8th will be the 20th anniversary of the Submarine Voyage's Closing. It's hard to believe they closed that long ago, but they did. At least the subs themselves are up and going to find Nemo.

    I looked on Wikipedia and there is no information on the voice actors. I think one of the subordinates was voiced by the late Javier Xtencio himself.

    Sorry. No idea. I'm assuming you've googled and wikipedia'd it to death already.

    Good times.
    Did you by any chance know who did the voice for the Captain in the original Submarine Voyage attraction? I know it wasn't Paul Frees or Thurl Ravenscroft.

    With Hyperspace Mountain, you miss the Michael Giaccino score. With Haunted Mansion Holiday, you miss the Ghost Host and Marble Busts. With Its a Small World Holiday, you don't miss anything.

    I'll agree that I'm not too fond of ANY overlay, except It's a Small World Holiday. But only because it still maintains the integrity and feel of the original ride.

    I have to say I miss Space Mountain more. The subs then and now don't have Star Wars crud in it.

    I really miss that ride. No, it was not a thrill a minute fast ride like Space Mountain, but there was nothing else like it. It was immersive in a way that none of the other attractions were. No TV screens to look at. Only real, actual props. The effects were somewhat corny, but IMHO, that was also part of the fun.
