Charlene grew up watching all the classic Disney movies and dreaming of being a princess but only recently became a full-fledged Disney Fanatic when her Prince Charming finally talked her into taking their family of seven on a WDW vacation (after 10 years of begging). Now, Charlene is often found pinning Disney tips, reading Disney blogs, and strategically planning out their next Disney vacations. Out of their five children, there is only one little princess, with whom Charlene can live vicariously through, meeting Disney princesses and watching all the magical Disney fairy tales together.

Look at those beauties! Talk about a Throwback Thursday! These vintage photos unfortunately are not dated, but guessing the 1970’s.

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Submarine Voyage was an attraction that opened on October 14, 1971 – two weeks after the park opened. There were 12 ride vehicles in all, which only sat 40 guests to a boat. The vehicles were costly to maintain, and the low-capacity led to its shut-down on September 5, 1994. The attraction was replaced with Ariel’s Grotto and Pooh’s Playful Spot. Eventually, these attractions were closed in 2010 to make way for New Fanatsyland and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train.
