When the pandemic affected the Disneyland Resort in 2020, the park took that time to give Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage a much-needed refurbishment.
Imagineers upgraded the attraction’s various set pieces, which included coral additions and touch-ups, fresh coats of paint, special effects, and lighting. The Imagineers finally added a character from the Finding Nemo sequel, Finding Dory, with Hank, the camouflage-cool septopus. The Disney Parks Blog released a video highlighting some of the newest additions to the attraction.
Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage is an attraction in Tomorrowland at Disneyland that opened on June 11, 2007. It uses the submarine vehicles, track layout, and location used by the Submarine Voyage, which originally opened on June 6, 1959.
Climb down into a yellow research submarine operated by the Nautical Exploration and Marine Observation Institute (N.E.M.O.). Peek through the portholes as you sail past scuba divers and artifacts of an ancient civilization scattered along the seafloor. Some familiar fins soon swim into view: it’s Nemo and his turtle pal, Squirt, with Marlin and Dory hot on their trail. During your underwater adventure, you’ll encounter other friends from the movie, including Bruce the Shark, Mr. Ray, Gill, Bubbles, Pearl, Peach, Crush, and more. Thanks to special “sonar hydrophones,” you can hear what everyone’s saying.
