  • Gold Carriages

    WOW !

    I just watched the Aussie broadcast from the park today, and I was amazed to see and hear that each of the original 1955 attractions has had one carriage painted Gold just for the day. I've seen the Dumbo & the Teacup, as well as the first powered vehicle (1903 Franklin) from the original parade.

    I'd love to see if it IS just for the day, or whether they keep it for a while - if they do, it's bound to make a lot of kiddies upset in line - "But Daddy, I want to ride in the gold Dumbo"

      When I heard of the gold vehicles I was reminded of when my little sisters used to fight over which color of cup to drink from...yeah.

        I think it's a great touch despite the fighting that is bound to happen. I'm seriously going to haul butt to ride Jingles now. Sigh.
        Well, light travels from the sun. Then, bounces off of our planet, and back into our eyes so we can perceive color. My body can intercept that light and dance around on it!

          ^ I saw the Sunrise show this morning & heard the weatherman say "Just for the day" - mind you, it's not the first time they've got their facts wrong!

          The 5th marks the start of Disneyland's 50th of course - The show has interpreted this day as the Park's Birthday

            I believe the Gold Dumbo is the one thats on the ground- not one of the flying ones- that is what the pictures made it look like. I didn't make it back there to check.

            Personally- I wanna ride the gold horse!

              I saw a photo of a gold dumbo vehicle, the flying one.

                  Yep - in both cases the weather guy was reporting from the golden vehicles while the ride was in motion - a very tricky procedure for the cameraman whilst on the teacups

                      As far as I can tell, there is a gold Jungle Cruise boat (The Congo Queen), a gold horse, a gold teacup, a gold dumbo, and SEVERAL gold Autopia cars.

                        I expect they wanted guests to see at least one gold car at any given time ?
