  • Submarine Voyage -- 18 Years Ago

    Today was the 18th anniversary of the Submarine Voyage's closure at Disneyland. Nine years later, we got Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage.

    I was working that date. There was a huge group of people who wanted to ride it that last day, way more than Disney anticipated. I remember the line being way outside of the normal queue.

      I wish I knew who did the voice of the captain in the original Submarine Voyage attraction. I listen to the soundtrack a lot.

        I've been wondering about that myself for years! And no one seems to know.

          1992 video. Not the complete ride but still fun.
           
          Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

            At least the Submarine Voyage wasn't completely removed like the Skyway. At least you can still ride.

              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.

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

                  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.

                    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.

                      Jingle Cruise is a fun change-up.

                          Today is the 19th anniversary of Disneyland's Submarine Voyage Thru Liquid Space's final voyage. Has it been that long?

                            Got to be a Sub pilot back in the pre-Nemo days,1989-90.
                            Still remember my trainer on day one congratulating me on a "great dock".
                            Good times.

                            AP'er since 2004. Yup.....I'm one of THEM.

                              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.

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

                                  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.

                                    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.

                                        "Have I gone mad?"
