(Walt Disney World, c.1971-94) An original park-used control panel from the Nautilus #5 ride vehicle of the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Submarine Voyage attraction at Walt Disney World. The panel consists of a metal plate covered by a printed decal identifying the sub’s controls that is faced with a sheet of clear acrylic. Real control lights, a temperature gauge, toggle switches, and buttons are embedded in the panel, and the wiring and circuitry is present on the reverse, with loose wires where it was removed from the submarine ride vehicle. This board controlled the fore and aft hatches, the sound system, lighting, the “engine room,” and emergency functions. The decal features a silhouette of the Nautilus with number 5 on the tail fin. The reverse of the panel is marked in felt pen “#5”. Measuring 11.25”x16.25” and 2.75” deep, the panel is in very good park used condition. The acrylic is cracked with some loss at the bottom right corner, a piece of the decal has rubbed away at bottom center, and there are a few scattered scuffs and tiny cracks. This lot provides a rare opportunity to own a highly desirable piece of this popular attraction and is just about the closest you could get to commandeering Captain Nemo’s ship.
