20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

Lost attraction tribute:   In 1994 we took our traditional pilgrimage to 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.   It was a unique attraction in Disney World and we always made a point to ride it, even when the lines were long, which they often were.

Then suddenly it was closed.   We went back a year later ('95) and 20,000 Leagues was "closed for rehab".   After over a year of rumors, we learned the ride would never open again, to the dismay of thousands of fans of Captain Nemo in FantasyLand.

When there were "E ticket" attractions, this was one.   For those of you who don't know what an "E ticket" ride is, it's considered one of the best.   Years ago, instead of a day pass, you bought a book of tickets.   An "A ticket" would be the Carousel, Dumbo a "B", Peter Pan "C", and Skyway a "D".   There were only eight "E Ticket" attractions.   20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is still an E ticket for me.

So if you are a fan of 20,00 Leagues Under the Sea, take a nostalgic ride below.   If you never got to ride in the Nautilus sub, Come with us.   A virtual voyage is the only way to ride with Captain Nemo now.

Now you can have your own Nautilus.   No kidding, you have a choice of two sizes and they are very detailed.   Click on the upper right of the page at Monsters In Motion for plenty of Nautilus replica photos.   And, While you're at it, you might want to look at the rest of the site.   It's awesome.
