“Secure ship for sea, make all preparations for getting underway.”

On June 6, 1959, the Submarine Voyage opened in Disneyland’s Tomorrowland area. The attraction was part of a major expansion of the park, which also included the Matterhorn Bobsleds and the Monorail. Originally painted grey, the submarines seated 38 guests and took them through a tour of underwater curiosities, including mermaids and the city of Atlantis. The attraction was overhauled in 1980, with the submarines being painted yellow to reflect a focus on scientific research. The attraction closed in 1998, but was revamped and reopened as the Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage in 2007.
