When Disneyland finally reopened after a historic 412-day closure, not all of the attractions in the theme park opened with it. One of the attractions that remained closed was the Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage, which can be found next to Autopia. The area is well-known to Guests, who can walk by and see the funny seagulls from Finding Nemo (2003) standing on the rocks and shouting “mine”.
Guests walking by the Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage have seen signs posted since April saying that the attraction is closed and will not open until this Winter. Until now, the construction walls had kept what was happening behind the scenes unknown to Guests, but now we can finally see just how much construction is actually going on.
The Disneyland monorail finally reopened after also being closed since the park opened in April, which takes Guests into the heart of Disneyland Park and lets them off right by the Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage. From the elevated angle, Five Fires YouTube was able to snap some pictures to share on Twitter and we can see that the water area of the submarine ride has been completely drained!

Here is more information on the Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage from the Disneyland Resort website:
With all the humor and heart of the original film, this immersive submarine ride takes you on an unforgettable ocean adventure—to find a missing clown fish.
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—and thanks to special “sonar hydrophones,” you can hear what everyone’s saying!
Will Marlin and Dory ever find Nemo? Just keep swimming to find out!
Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage first opened at Disneyland Park in 2007 — replacing the original Submarine Voyage attraction that had opened in 1959. Disney has not said if the attraction will have any restrictions when it reopens due to the fact that it traditionally holds a number of people in a small, confined space.
