It's been sitting idle for so many years now...and will soon be refurbished and reinvented as a new Finding Nemo exhibit (anyone else like the irony there?). So while digging through some old slides of mine from the Old Days, I came upon a shot of the original 20,000 Leagues ride when it was still operating. This was taken in 1984: While I love Finding Nemo, and always trust Disney to make excellent rides and displays, there is always a measure of sadness to see bits of Disney history fade away in people's memories - I can finally sympethize with my elders in seeing the march of time and progress rendering things from their childhood insignificant or unworthy of tribute. The films and the rides will always change with the times, which has kept Disney on top. But as Mr. Toad, 20,000 Leagues, and others disappear...just a little bit of my childhood goes with them!
