    When I very little, maybe 5, I ride 20,000 Leauges for the first time. I had a complete and utter meltdown when we started to “descend”. No amount of consoling from my parents worked. They were just going to suffer through all my screams. The pilot came and took me up to were he stood and showed me we weren’t really under water that it was a trick. And it was a secret! I immediately calmed down because I knew something none of the other riders knew! After that it became my favorite ride. I’ll never forget that castmember for giving me that “peek behind the curtain”. I miss that ride!

    Don’t forget about Disney imagineer jack gladdish who also helped with design of the captain nemo submarines…he also did Abe Lincoln animatronics at the hall of presidents, accompanied him to the worlds fair and worked on the pneumatic birds for Mary poppins and the tiki birds…he told me about the nightmares he had about getting the birds to chirp just right in time with the beaks moving! He showed me a picture of Julie Andrews holding a bird and you could see the pneumatic air lines in a slit in the sleeve near her elbow.

    The BEST video out there that captures the sunken Nautilus off Castaway Cay!

  5. ” The centerpiece (and ride vehicle) of this undersea adventure was the “Nautilus,” a smaller version the submarine Captain Nemo commanded in the Disney movie”
    I don’t agree, look at: http://blog.hwtm.com/2013/08/free-printables-disney-pixar-cars-birthday-party/
