Apparently, it was a gift from Disneyland Paris. Her name is Penny and she was filled with pennies in Paris. She was moved to Disneyland Anaheim and was emptied of her pennies. This has been confirmed, but I'm still not sure if it's completely accurate
One lady wrote about how the piano man at the Coke Corner told them that at night the rubies on her crown glow and no one knows why

Oh, and I just read another website that confirmed the whole pennies and Paris thing, but it said her name is actually "Lucy" because she looks as if she was made from Lucite
sigpic...After a YEAR I finally was able to figure out my password again! I'm baaack! Woohoo!(: Disney is my life <3 Thank Walt for all he did! <3 Future Imagineer <3 Keep Disney the way Walt intended it!!
I do not know WHAT her name is! I've read the internet chatter about how she was a gift from Paris (or not) or how she was filled with pennies (or not) or how her name is Penny / Lucy etc. One post even said her name was Abe from Abe Lincoln on the pennies. This "fact" is what caused me to stop and just ask. I thought someone out there on micechat would know her story.
Anyway, she is beautiful and, I think, often missed by the casual guest. I was hoping there would be an expert out there who could give us the facts.
The glass elephant was indeed created for Disneyland Paris' Main Street, and when some remodeling was done there, it was sent to Anaheim. There was an article written about it in one of the Disney magazines a while back.

I'm so sad no one seems to know! I was really hoping for a good history lesson and a confirmed name for this beautiful elephant!
Oh well. Maybe there is no story. Maybe she's simply a big glass elephant at the ice cream shop. No name, no story. Blah.
Thanks anyway, everyone.
Sorry to disappoint. That entire area of the store is no more than 15 or so years old. It seems the elephant may have some history as apparently it's from DLP. But other than that there's not much more to it.
I'm about 95% sure she was on display in Penny Arcade long before she was moved to Gibson. I want to say she was towards the back with the big organ thingy... moved front when they swapped the old games for a stuffed animal display (she was the centerpiece)... and eventually moved to Gibson when Penny Arcade switched back.
