    Question WDW, Nautilus model?

    Hi Folks,

    I believe back in 1983 there was a small room between Main Street and the Train arches that contained the model of the Nautilus and maybe other items. Does anybody remember this or am I 20,000 leagues under the sea? If it was there what happen to it and can I still see it in WDW?

    Thanks

    Rick R.

    Re: WDW, Nautilus model?

    I think you were correct. I think it was located in the queue area for "Walt Disney's Story", which was on Main St in a theater around where the Exposition Hall is today, in the Gulf Hospitality House.

    I think that model was relocated to The Living Seas for it's pre-Hydrolator queue area, but there may have been two different models. At least one of them eventually ended up in One Man's Dream I believe. I don't think it is still there, and I'm not sure where there is a current Nautilus model.

    Hi doconeill

    Many thanks for replying back and for the info. I remember really enjoying that model and was hoping to see it again. Then again maybe my memory is more exciting then the real thing

    Cheers

    The Nautilus on display at the Living Seas was a real, genuine production prop. I am sure the Nautilus at One Man's Dream is a separate one, and a replica, but it would be good if someone could clear that up for good. It's worth a trip to the exhibition though, they have a cabinet filled with some 20K diving equipment from the Bahamas shoot underneath the Nautilus model.
