If you are a fan of directionally challenged CGI clownfish, you better swim over to Disneyland in the next few weeks. The Orange Country Register reported, and the Disney Parks Blog confirmed, that Disneyland’s Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage attraction will close on January 6 for an extensive refurbishment expected to last until late 2014.

During the downtime, Disney says that the Tomorrowland lagoon will be drained and the coral rockwork will be made more colorful. The subs, which were (in their original non-Nemo incarnation) added in 1959 as one of Disneyland’s first E-ticket attractions, have limited carrying capacity and are notoriously expensive to maintain. Here’s hoping that the submarines do return by the end of next year, and that this isn’t the first step towards the attraction fading into Yesterland.
