 Best Post of the Day 8-16-14
Good morning! This day in Disney history, August 16th, 1955: Dumbo the Flying Elephant opens in Fantasyland.

Inspired by the 1941 animated feature Dumbo, the original location of Dumbo is actually NOT where it is today. It was located right in from of the Fantasyland Theater, near the Pirate Ship Restaurant. The photo below is a 1955 model in "The First 50 Magical Years" exhibit. It shows Dumbo in it's original location, on the west side of Fantasyland.

Walt hoped to have Dumbo ready for the July 17th grand opening of the park, but unfortunately, the fiberglass elephants only arrived about three weeks before opening day. If you notice in the photo below, the ears of the ten 700 pound fiberglass Dumbos are on hinges and are supposed to move up and down. The mechanisms never worked properly so they remained stationary.

Later, the sculptor, Chris Mueller Jr., created new casts with no hinges for movement.

So not only did the original elephants have mechanical issues, they also first arrived painted PINK. Notice in the main pic of the post. That was the original Dumbo attraction poster. Not a misprint, the original attraction elephants were to represent the pink elephants that Dumbo and Timothy saw in their drunken dream in the original film. This is because there is only ONE Dumbo in the film, but there are many pink elephants!



So, why the change? Here’s the explanation from  “The Nickel Tour”:
Somewhere along the way, no doubt, Walt decided he’d rather have everyone riding the real Dumbo, not an alcohol-induced hallucination. So the pink elephants became gray and the one and only Dumbo became ten.”

The official Disneyland website includes this bit of historic trivia about Dumbo the Flying Elephant:
When former President Harry Truman visited Disneyland® Park in 1957, Dumbo was one of the few attractions he didn’t ride. Truman didn’t want to be associated with a character related to the Republican party.

In 1983 with the opening of the New Fantasyland, the Dumbo attraction moved to where Skull Rock Lagoon had been.

Quoted from yesterland.com:
"The biggest change to Dumbo came in 1990, after two accidents.
On March 29, 1989, one of the fiberglass elephants partially separated from a support arm, injuring a Garden Grove couple and their 3-year-old daughter. The family suffered “bruises and scrapes.” Dumbo reopened the next day.”

“A year later, on April 1, 1990, one of the support arms collapsed, injuring a 13-year-old girl from Canada. The teenager suffered “minor bruises.” After being checked at Garden Grove Hospital, she returned to the park for the rest of the day. This time, the old Dumbo was grounded permanently.”
“In both cases, the injuries were minor. But the accidents should not have happened at all. Disneyland needed a safe, reliable Dumbo attraction."

To see a video of the many changes Dumbo has been through:


The NEW Dumbo attraction opened in it's current location in November 1990.  It now features 16 elephants, giving it 60% more capacity.

Do YOU enjoy taking a trip around Fantasyland in an Elephant? What’s the longest you’ve waited to enjoy this attraction? I’ll admit, Dumbo has always been one of my minis favorites. I’ve waited 80 minutes. ::gasps::

Thanks for reading and watching! Happy 59th anniversary Dumbo! Hope you all have a super Saturday!

Really happy you liked the post! Thank YOU!  - Duchess_SMK  5776.8 #14 10:56AM
I loved Dumbo so much as a kid! Now I get nervous on it LOL.  My  son likes to keep it at the top for the entire ride. - Thumper13  426.8 #447 5:49AM
It does feel quite high when you are all the way up huh? 😊 great for picture taking though! How long have you waited for this one? - Duchess_SMK  5776.8 #14 10:57AM
Wow, this is so interesting! Dumbo is a true classic. I used to watch the movie over and over as a kid, and now that it's on netflix, my kids and I just watched it together the other day. It made me so excited for our trip next month! It was a must ride for me as a kid, and I have pics of my mom and I riding it together back in the late 80s. Sadly, I have not taken my boys on it yet since the lines are always crazy long, but it's on our list of rides during magic morning. Thank you for this awesome post of Disney history! - marisadel  12.1 #8423 5:52AM
Thanks for the reminder that it's on netflix! I haven't seen it in quite awhile. I know what I'm watching today! :) hope you get to enjoy a flight on an elephant soon! Thank YOU!  - Duchess_SMK  5776.8 #14 10:59AM

Happy Anniversary Dumbo! 🐘 I do love this attraction and it's always a favorite when the wee ones of family members come along. I love to just go to the very top when I'm flying with Dumbo and look out over everything .  Wheeeeeeeeee! - DisneyDavidEMT  1603.0 #82 8:01AM
πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘ it really is pretty all the way up there! What is the longest you've waited?  - Duchess_SMK  5776.8 #14 11:00AM
Longest I waited was about 35 minutes - DisneyDavidEMT  1603.0 #82 11:14AM

I'm so excited to take my little baby on this! I haven't rode it myself since I was really little. Happy birthday Dumbo - FoolishMortal138  326.6 #675 8:55AM
Oh that'll be so fun! Take lots of pics! πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘ - Duchess_SMK  5776.8 #14 6:07AM
Interesting bit about the hinged ears. That would have been cute if they had flapped. Maybe the Imagineers will try again some day. Thanks as always for a fascinating history lesson.  - redsoxcarlos  1190.4 #119 10:49AM
Right? Would have been neat to see em flapping!! Lol, I doubt they'd change it now but you never know! Thank you sir! Glad you enjoyed it!  - Duchess_SMK  5776.8 #14 6:09AM
This is one of my favorite rides. It's the first ride i can remember getting on. - HollyGolightlyPrincess  394.0 #508 12:36PM
Awe! You're so cute! πŸ‘‹πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜˜ - Duchess_SMK  5776.8 #14 7:16AM
We love Dumbo and always ride at least once!  This was so fun to read, thank you!!  I didn't know that they were once all pink.  I did know that about Truman because I did a report on him in 6th grade...and that's the only fact I still remember haha.  We've never waited too long, maybe 15-20 mins?  We usually ride in the mornings.  πŸ’— - MinnieMousewife  769.6 #206 1:51PM
Good memory! That story made me giggle when I read it. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜ 15-20 mins?! Dang! Lucky! Thank YOU! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  5776.8 #14 7:17AM
Oh my gosh! πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ’—πŸ˜ I always wondered why the elephants were pink in the poster! I love Dumbo! Thank you Duchess!!! 😘 - PinkElephants  745.6 #217 2:06PM
πŸ‘‹πŸ˜ hi PE! So glad you saw this! When I was posting the pink elephants video I couldn't help but think of you! Thank YOU! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  5776.8 #14 7:19AM
And only in wdw is there 2 dumbo  attraction because of how long the wait was , did  this during the new fantasyland - pikarich  3113.7 #34 4:51PM
Oh yeah? Cool! I had no idea they have two dumbos! Do they have a Casey jr too?  - Duchess_SMK  5776.8 #14 7:19AM
Ues, ut inside 2 separate tents , kind of like you visit him in the circus, and as for Casey jr,  it no longer exist as the same ride we have here, it is a water play area,  in fact disneyland is the only park with most of the original fantasyland attractions, when wdw redid theirffantasyland they lost almost all the classic ride for more modern takes of it - pikarich  3113.7 #34 8:45AM
Great read, thanks! - DizneyGirl  667.7 #7 8:51PM
So glad you enjoyed it! Thank you! πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘‹ - Duchess_SMK  5776.8 #14 7:20AM
Great to know, because I didn't know read! 😊 I can't recall how long I've waited in line for this attraction, but, for my niece, nephew or any child that I'll be hanging out with, I'll wait for how ever long 😊 - MadameLeota  1833.4 #72 7:41AM
That's how I feel too! Always worth the wait to see the kiddos smile!  - Duchess_SMK  5776.8 #14 8:08AM
Love it! It's not my very very favorite ride, but it's the first my husband and I rode as a married couple on our honeymoon, and it will always be special. Β I love the info about the pink elephants--would be a funny idea, πŸ˜‚ but I see why Walt decided to change them to gray Dumbos. Β I don't know what the longest we've waited is--we usually like to enjoy Fantasyland right after rope drop, so probably not more than 10-15 mins. Β I might have waited longer as a kid, though. Β Thank you for the lesson! βœοΈπŸ“šπŸ“– - Spoonful_O_Sugar  549.1 #323 7:55AM
Awe! How cute is that?! Bet you two looked so cute! I wish I could get my kiddos to the park that early! Sounds like most of you hit dumbo and fantasyland 1st thing and don't wait long. Thank YOU for your comment! 😘  - Duchess_SMK  5776.8 #14 8:07AM
Great informative post, thank you. Have only ridden Dumbo once in over 50 years. Hangs head in shame, but have made up for it on all the other Fantasyland attractions! Rode it last year and liked it, it was fun. Think the long waits deter me. - jacdanfan  7417.3 #5 8:10AM
😳 time for a visit next trip I'd say! Yeah, I understand not wanting to wait, but apparently if you go early, peeps are saying they only wait 15 mins! 😊 hope you're having a great day! Thank you!  - Duchess_SMK  5776.8 #14 8:10AM
Great read, wish they had a πŸ’– Dumbo set up for pics! I can't remember the last time I was on because I'm usually taking pics of whoever is! Thanks for the post! - piratelife4me  841.0 #187 10:02AM
Isn't there still one behind dumbo? Made specifically for photos? I'm pretty sure, my kids like to climb on him. πŸ˜‚ nice of you to take pics for others though! 😊 thank YOU!  - Duchess_SMK  5776.8 #14 8:12AM
Wow so much here I never knew!! So interesting!! Thank-you for keeping us so well informed!! πŸ’– - adisneyfamily  719.7 #224 10:32AM

I remember those accidents!  There was so much gossip going on in the breakrooms and CM dining area! - BombFrogFormerCM  780.6 #202 10:39AM
Oh wow! That must have been interesting to hear about almost 1st hand. Don't hear about many accidents at DL!  - Duchess_SMK  5776.8 #14 8:14AM
I was surprised by some CMs in Fantasyland being quite accurate about the injuries while hearing others who worked on the otherside of the park blow it up... - BombFrogFormerCM  780.6 #202 3:39PM
Once again... Great post!!! It's been about 30 years since I have been on Dumbo! I am going to have to fix that!!! Thank you! - Boundin  533.9 #337 9:55PM
Thank you! 😳 30 years really? Oh yes, next trip for sure! Great view from up there!  - Duchess_SMK  5776.8 #14 8:14AM
I am sorry I missed this! Thank you for this post. Everyone loves Dumbo! I had no idea about the many mechanical problems. I also like Walt's idea about riding the "real Dumbo". The story about Truman was my favorite. No GOP symbol for him.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚We don't ride Dumbo very often.😞. I probably waited about 30 minutes with my friend and her mini. - RadiatorSprings4Ever  885.8 #175 12:40AM
You didn't miss it! πŸ˜‰ thanks for commenting! 30 mins seems to be the average. Glad you enjoyed the read!  - Duchess_SMK  5776.8 #14 8:16AM
Thanks for another great lesson. 😘 - LaPearleNoir  1248.6 #108 6:32AM
Thank YOU sweetie! Hope to see you soon! ☺️😘 - Duchess_SMK  5776.8 #14 8:16AM
We used to ride Dumbo when the churros were little. Maybe it's time to ride again an get an elephant's eye view of Disneyland. Neat to see the video of how it evolved. The longest we've probably wait it is 20 minutes. Do they still give out the feather? - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  4459.4 #21 6:57AM
They do still hand out feathers (with little bite marks all over them πŸ˜‚) - Spoonful_O_Sugar  549.1 #323 7:14AM
I think it depends on who's working because when we rode last trip they didn't hand out feathers. πŸ˜” my kiddos were bummed. Great views up there!  - Duchess_SMK  5776.8 #14 8:02AM

Entering accurate wait times is hard work but a lot of fun and adds value to this app for the hundreds of people who have the app and only use it to see wait times, like I did when I first got the app  - MelodyMouse  3459.3 #27 2:44PM

unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. Automated crowd prediction calendars are worthless--the UNFORECAST is where it's at!

unForecast for week of Monday, December 15th, 2014:

 
Park Hours: DL: 8am-12am (Monday-Thursday, Saturday, Sunday), 8am-11pm (Friday). DCA: 8am-10pm (Monday-Thursday), 8am-11pm (Friday-Sunday). 

FYI: "Fantasmic" will now be shown daily with two performances at 8:45pm and 10:45pm with its new FastPass option and new dining packages. 

This week's "Wednesdays with Walt" Annual Passholder Event will feature "Holiday Time at Disneyland". To attend the event, present a valid AP to the Cast Member at the Main Street Opera House starting at 12noon on Wednesday.

unForecast Crowd Prediction: With Christmas time in full gear, expect it to be very busy in both parks this week. Even with the rain, expect it to still be busy. As more schools are released for break, expect this weekend to be very busy too. For Disneyland Park, expect CIs to be in the low 80s to low 90s and for DCA, expect CIs to be in the high 70s to high 80s. 

Have a great week!  - BaseballMickey_CM Dec 16, 2014 2:26PM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  351.2 #595 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.5 #6720 11:53PM
I love these posts!  I do have a question/request/suggestion...is there a way to only show the 3-4 most recent posts?  It's a lot to scroll through. @@Admin - TiggersAndTinks  114.1 #3179 5:08AM

If you're there today, you can make HandMeAChurroImmaFaint 'S POTC meetup at 6 pm. Usually they will gather across from the ride entrance. Perhaps along the fence area of the Riverbelle Terrace. Look for a fairly large group of fun-loving people. Many will have their mouse ears on. Your hostess, Ms Churro, will be leading the way. Just dive right in and ask, 'excuse me. Is this the Mousewait meetup?'  You won't be sorry!  Disneygrl35 - MeridaFan  3429.7 #28 2:09PM
