After the submarine Voyage opened in 1959, along with the Monorail and the Matterhorn Bobsleds as part of Disneyland's so-called "second grand opening", Walt Disney called Joe Fowler, who oversaw their construction, to his office. Walt thanked and congratulated Joe on his efforts and gave him a plaque designating him as the Commander in Chief of the Disneyland Navy. However Walt was quick to add, but don't forget, that I am still the overall Security of Defense.
Growing up in Los Angeles in the 70s/80s we visited Disneyland on a regular basis and often after school, before "Annual Passes".
