Onsite: Disneyland Unveils its Newest Attraction

ANAHEIM, CA- Travel Agent was onsite this week for the opening ceremony of Disney-Pixar's new "Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage" in DisneylandPark. The new attraction, a highlight of the ongoing "Year of a Million Dreams" celebration throughout Disney, is set in the submarine lagoon of Tomorrowland, where Disney operated the "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" ride from 1959 to 1998. Eight of the original submarines have been rebuilt and modernized with environmentally friendly electric power, and the undersea lagoon now uses a four-channel stereophonic sound system, audio-Animatronics characters and digital imaging technology to feature scenes and sounds of the hit movie, "Finding Nemo."

Hundreds of media professionals attended the ride's celebrity-studded launch and party, held June 10 and 11 in Disneyland's Tomorrowland. Attendees also were given updates on the park's other new attractions, including "Pirate's Lair," a ride based on the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies. The ride's opening coincided with the release date of the new movie "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End," which opened May 25. Visit [www.disneyland.com].
