This day in Disney history, Oct 23rd, 1941: Dumbo, had it's world premier at the Broadway Theater in New York City; and in 1953 the Disney short, "Rugged Bear" was released.
First up, Dumbo!
The fourth Walt Disney animated feature, Dumbo, directed by Ben Sharpsteen, is based on the sort by Helen Aberson and illustrated by Harold Pearl. Sixty four wonderful minutes of a baby elephant with gigantic ears who discovers his place in the world. It is a small, intimate, emotionally powerful mother-son tale with terrific songs and characters and outstanding animation—in other words, perfect family entertainment. It will go on to win the Oscar for Best Score for a Musical Film and "BabyMine" (the song that plays during Dumbo's visit to he is mothers cell) will be nominated for Best Song.
To watch the Dumbo trailer:
A fun little extra tidbit- Among those attending the premiere were eighteen soldiers stationed at Fort Monmouth, New Jersey, all of whom had worked at the Disney studio. Some of those soldiers are in the photo below, which was taken the night of the premiere.
Have you seen Dumbo? Do you have a favorite scene or song from the movie?

unForecast Crowd Prediction: With the weather warming up this week, expect the parks to be a little busier than normal in February. Also, many schools have some holidays coming up (Washington's Birthday, Lincoln's Birthday, Presidents Day), so it may be crowded on the next Mondays and Fridays in the next couple weeks. For this week, expect it to be moderately quiet with CIs in the 60s for Disneyland Park and CIs in the 50s for DCA. With Valentine's Day on Saturday, expect the restaurants resort wide to be very busy.
