      Looks like the OLD 50th paint job for the top of the Dumbo ride, now back to more traditional colors.

          yes, he is....I don't go into fantasyland often, but I thought it was on or near the organ. They look like the circus elephants from the movie. When they had to make the pyramid.

            Those elephants are the tops of the candy colored lamps that surround the Casey Jr RR queue.

                    yes, they have the same style elephants in hollywood across from the kodak theater.


                    and the DCA elephant.


                    they look very similar to me.

                      And they're both replicas of an old theater that had elephant statues. And I think before that, they were in a film, and that the film was premiered in that theater, and the elephants just stayed there.

                        Was it President Nixon who wouldn't ride Dumbo because of the political symbolism of the elephant?

                          I wouldn't think so. The Republican Party is the elephant, the Democrat Party is the donkey.

                            I think that was Andrew Jackson who wouldn't ride it. :smart:

                            Or maybe he did ride it and thats why his hair looks like that.






                            It was actually Harry S Truman

                              My bad...it was Truman.
