Subs, August 1960

Disneyland definitely needs more places with hot babes lounging around. Talk about eye candy! I wonder how long these lovely mermaids were required to bake in the hot August sun? Supposedy the heavily chlorinated water turned blond hair green, but a mermaid with green hair sounds about right.


Sometimes a submarine just needs to be aired out. I mean, come on, everybody knows that! Otherwise they start to smell like stale french fries inside. I told them to buy those little cardboard pine tree air-fresheners, but nobody listens to me. You'd think that in a peak summer month like August, they would need every single sub to be working so that the ride was at full capacity. Guess that would be wrong!

You know all those years the subs were closed they should have had mermaids in the lagoon. Now that would have given some interest to that area. Wish they would bring them back if only for a short time.

I wish they would too. Doubtful it will happen, though -- the above-water mermaids were themed to the subs' underwater adventure-fantasy show, "Voyage thru Liquid Space." On a journey beneath the polar ice cap to the lost city of Atlantis, undersea volcanoes and a sea monster were seen, along with mermaids.

They wouldn't fit with the, um... stuff... that's down there now. :P

Yep, in order to fit in with the new ride they've removed the mermaids and replaced them with a buoy slathered in simulated bird poop.... But of course it's from Imagineering so, to be fair, it's enchanted bird poop.

These are true tomorrowland shots. But maybe Ariel good hang around in the water now. Without the body stocking. Just a thought.

According to legend (meaning it was probably written by Marty Sklar)...

A visiting VIP asked Walt "Why are there holes in your Matterhorn?"

Walt replied, "Because it's a Swiss mountain."
