To begin your journey, you enter a yellow submarine that’ll take you below the depths of the “ocean”. The Nautical Exploration and Marine Observation Institute (N.E.M.O) gives tours in these submarines for guests of all ages to enjoy.
When entering your submarine, you’ll notice a tight staircase that brings you to two rows of seats facing individual portholes. These portholes will be your eyes to what the ocean has to show you during your journey. Once the reef tour begins, your tour guide from N.E.M.O. will notice they’re getting frequencies on the radio that give them the ability to understand what the marine life is saying. N.E.M.O. calls this frequency technology a sonar hydrophone.
During your journey under the sea, you will be accompanied by friends like Nemo, Marlin, Dory, Bruce, Crush, and even Squirt. They’ll be swimming around your porthole so you can see what it’s like for them living in the “big blue world” we know as the ocean. Just like in the film Finding Nemo, Nemo will get lost, but you’ll be there to help Marlin and Dory on their journey to reunite with Nemo and all of his friends.
Location & Wait Times
Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage can be located behind Matterhorn Bobsleds in Fantasyland or right beside Autopia in Tomorrowland. This attraction has a stunning park view with bright blue waters. The attraction offers a scenic overview of Tomorrowland and Fantasyland to capture a perfect family photo before riding the attraction.
Many guests will recognize this location as 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, the original attraction at this location where you find Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage now. This previous attraction had closed in 1998 after operating for 39 years. But the submarine vehicles used nowadays are the originals from 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea!
The wait time can vary throughout the day, usually averaging at 30 minutes. It is known to get a lot less crowded after the sun sets and the closer it gets to park closing. Nemo Submarine Voyage is often a walk-on attraction.
During your queue experience, you are entirely outdoors. A lot of shade is provided from the monorail station, which is located right above the entire queue. While waiting, you can view the submarines out in the sea. Additionally, you will see bobsled riders on The Matterhorn and guests driving their vehicles through the winding roads of Autopia.
