Finding Nemo subs debut at Disneyland

Published: June 11, 2007 at 11:21 AM

Today's the day for the public debut of the Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage at Disneyland. Expect long waits for the first several weeks, as Disneyland's hundreds of thousands of annual passholders make the trip to ride.

I apologize for the lack of live coverage; I had planned to hit the park at the crack of dawn today and blog the first day experience. Instead, I spent part of the weekend in the ER after hacking my finger with a kitchen mandoline. So I'm at home, awaiting a doctor's appointment, and "Finding Vicodin" instead. Yea!

Not to leave you hanging, Kimi Yoshino's got the details of the ride over at the LA Times. And I trust TPI readers to add their impression in the comments below or on our Finding Nemo subs page.

We leave Wednesday morning for our Disneyland Family Vacation and should arrive some time Thursday morning. We will "attempt" to take a ride on it but if the crowds are too crazy, which I expect, maybe the lines at other popular attractions will be shorter. At any rate, if we're able to get on it, I'd be happy to share my experience.

I have to ride this. I've seen online videos and photos by newspapers and it looks amazing. I can't wait to get on.

I was there today. The lines were four to five hours long all day long.
The park was packed.

Rode it today. Loved it. I waited only about 2.5 hours thanks to being early (20 minutes after opening?).

I wouldn't that long again to ride it, so I probably won't be riding it again any time soon. So I loved it, but not so much that I must get back on right now at no costs.
