We decided to go to Downtown Disney via the Monorail
The Submarines were reconstruction?

Did You Know? - Finding Nemo: Submarine Voyage closed in January 2014 for what was announced as an extended refurbishment. Disneyland's submarine ride to the North Pole and the lost continent of Atlantis opened in June 1959 before closing in September 1998. The attraction reopened in June 2007 with a Finding Nemo overlay, inspired by the Pixar movie.

The submarine ride uses one of Disneyland's largest show building, as all elements needed to be duplicated, so that both sides of the submarine could see the same thing. That, coupled with a low capacity -- fewer than 1,000 guests per hour -- made the submarine ride one of the most cost-inefficient at Disneyland.

Disneyland states the 5 million gallon 'lagoon' will be drained allowing crews to preform the massive ride refurbishment. They state when (if) the ride reopens guests will see a more vibrate and colorful version of the ride, which will be painted with a special mixture created by Disney which involved recycled glass.

Did You Know? - The Billquists & Jettes joined us for Easter Dinner this year. We met them on Life Day 2010 when we arrange to have them go to Club 33 in Disneyland after a several month-long internet relationship! Bob and Robin joined us and we have seen them many times since! It was great that they were down for the Disneyland visit this week!

Quotation To Remember: The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another's desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together. ~Erma Bombeck
