Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage returns to Disneyland this Saturday

September 22, 2014, 1:47 PM · Disneyland announced today that the Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage will reopen this Saturday after an extended refurbishment.

Finding Nemo submarine

The ride closed in early January, and Disney's promised refreshed and repainted scenes throughout the ride. The subs employ Disneyland's largest show building, which must accommodate two versions of every show scene, one for each side of the ride. That extends any amount of time for maintenance for the attraction. Though, to be honest, many observers suggest that Disney allowed the sub refurb to extend for all these months mostly to save on labor expenses, as the attraction has one of the worst labor-hours-to-guest-throughput ratios in the park.

But, given all the stuff that Disney's closing, it'll be nice to get an attraction back, won't it?

That doesn't make it true.
