Although they weren’t real submarines and didn’t actually submerge in the water, it sure felt like they did. Submarine Voyage took riders on an unforgettable “underwater” adventure. According to Yesterland, the captain of the submarine brought riders through a shipwreck graveyard, the North Pole, and Atlantis. But the riders weren’t alone on their underwater adventure. They also passed by mermaids, unusual glowing fish, and a sea serpent. Although Submarine Voyage is now Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage, the new attraction still follows the same path as the original. Here’s how you can save money on your next trip to Walt Disney World.

According to Yesterland, The Mine Train Through Nature’s Wonderland was “inspired by Disney’s True-Life Adventure nature movies of the 1950s.” This train ride offered views of waterfalls, geysers, cacti, and bubbling pots of mud. Surrounded by over 200 animated animals, like beavers, bobcats, and bears, this train ride had every guest feeling like they were part of nature. Yesterland also mentions a little-known secret of this ride: “If you board the Mine Train around 8:50 p.m., the train will stop on a hillside above the Living Desert. You’ll be treated to the best view of the fireworks anywhere in the park.”
