Thanks for the photos of the 20,000 Leagues ride. I did not get to go on as a child (I fainted in the line...it was HOT that day) and when I got to go back in 2005, it was gone. I wish they would have reopened it.

There are rumors that with the recent reactivation of the subs at DL that they are thinking of bringing back WDW subs but I think I'll believe it when I see it.

Gosh, I really hope that is the case....I think I read somewhere that the buried the old Nautilus subs And of course they have filled in the lagoon to make the Pooh's corner play area, so they would have to start over from scratch. It would be wonderful but I don't think they will do it, it would be a lot of work and a lot more $$$. It seems to me that Disney is almost beginning to emphasize the differences between DL and WDW in order to get more people to attend both. Living so close to WDW, we never considered planning a trip to DL in the past.....but now, with so many different attractions and differences in the rides, we are considering planning a DL trip....

I thought that the Pooh play area has taken over where the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea used to be?

It did - but there are lots of rumors flying around that this was only temporary until they came up with a final idea of what to do with the area. Another rumor for the area is that it is going to be a Little Mermaid themed area. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

I think I've heard of it turning into a Little Mermaid area as well...

I thought they filled in the hole.. It wouldn't make sense to fill it in if any of those rumors are true.

Actually, IMO, it's quite the opposite. See the "Disney Parks" merchandise and advertising which pervaded all US Disney theme parks at the beginning of the YoaMD "celebration." Thankfully, this is/has been slowly removed from the parks.

There are definitely different attractions, but for the most part, in recent years attractions added have not been so unique, particularly at DCA, where a lot of the new attractions have gone (simply not a lot of room for expansion at DL park). ToT, ITTBAB, Turtle Talk with Crush, Playhouse Disney, Muppetvision...DCA is filled with many WDW clones. DL park is where you'll find many of the classic originals that are missing from MK such as Storybookland, Alice, Pinocchio, Mr. Toad...and rides that are way plussed compared to MK (HM, PoTC).

It is absolutely worth visiting DL if you're "used to" WDW. I visited twice last year alone (not easy for an East Coast-er). We'll see how the differentiation between the parks goes with Disney management in the coming months and years, though. This past year was rough with the "Disney Parks" thing, but it seems they may have learned the err of their ways.

You're definitely right about the merchandising, YOaMD, and DCA...I didn't think about it in that perspective. I do think (hope!) maybe they have realized that different is good!! I am excited to get over to DL and check it out!!

They weren't buried. I saw a picture and a thread, (it might of been on DIS boards) that they are laying out back behind one of the theme parks. The ysiad that sometimes cast members climb around on them. (I don'tthinl they are supposed to though). I can't remember where I saw this, but it wasn't too long ago.
