Walt Disney Co. Chairman and CEO, Bob Iger, laid to rest the rumors that Disneyland's Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage ride could soon be replaced by a new attraction. These rumors have been circulating around the internet for a while, and recently gained more traction in January when the ride shut down for an extensive rehab; it is planned to reopen in the fall. Rumors held that a Tomorrowland expansion with a Marvel or Star Wars theme would take the place of the submarines.

When asked at the company's annual meeting about the ride being replaced, Iger said, "We believe it's in its rightful place and open and there for guests to enjoy, young and old."

However, it doesn't appear that the idea of a Tomorrowland expansion is completely off the table. Iger did say that there would be changes coming for the park. "We are looking at opportunities for Marvel and Star Wars. You can expect there's more ahead for Disneyland."
