Main Topic

This month we take you back to the Magic Kingdom and onto the classic ride, 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea. How & Todd take us back to the 1950s, giving us a bit of history to begin. As we continue, you learn all about the subs, the ride, sounds and everything down to the smallest detail. This is one attraction where nearly all of us have some experience actually riding and loving. Gone but not forgotten, this ride never made it to “Classic Status” before it was too late. Our own How Bowers is one of the few people on earth to take the final ride around on the sub… Hope you enjoy going back with us to Fantasyland, before it was new and when you could ride with Captain Nemo.

Retro WDW Merchandise

How has given us an amazing design based on the Home of Future Living. This one is absolutely amazing and you can get it in shirt form and many other products.

One of the few rides I remember really well from our ’77 trip. Thanks so much for all the history on it! Fascinating!!! So sad to hear that it’s long gone though! 🙁 Sounds like not much at all is left from the park the year we were there.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
