If you live on the West Coast of the U.S., particularly Southern California, you may have seen the commercials. Two kids are swimming in a small pool when something catches their eye. The dive and find themselves in a ocean with characters from Disney/Pixar’s hit movie Finding Nemo (one of my favorite films, BTW).
It’s all part of the ramp up to the re-opening of the submarine ride at Disneyland. When I was little, the ride’s theme was taken from 20,000 Leagues Beneath the Sea. Now, as mentioned in the last issue of The Genre Traveler, it has been updated to a Finding Nemo theme.
Sounds cool, but is it really as cool as Disney spindoctors would have you believe? Check out what Robert Niles at Theme Park Insider has to say about it.
