Disneyland Paris " Les Mystères du Nautilus " Attraction
Here is a great pictorial tribute to Disneyland Paris "Les Mystères du Nautilus" attraction which would not have been built without the help of Tom Scherman.
Opened in 1994 thanks to the beautiful work of Discoveryland show-producer Tim Delaney along with dozens of WDI artists, sculptors, etc..."Les Mystères du Nautilus" attraction couldn't have been built without Tom Scherman who, as Harper Goff had passed away, was the last one to know the secrets of the legendary submarine. Some of you may never had the luck to visit Disneyland Paris, and this visit of the Nautilus walk-through, thanks to great pictures and a HD video will give you a better idea of the amazing work that Tom and WDI Imagineers did on this attraction.
