History and Trivia
- At this location: Dumbo the Flying elephant was originally a bit to the left of where it is now located.
The current location was originally home to Chicken of the Sea Pirate Ship and Restaurant, a large pirate ship that served as a dining location in Fantasyland. The restaurant's name was change in 1969 to Captain Hook's Galley. When Fantasyland was
redesigned in 1983-84, it was impossible to keep that ship in place during the reconstruction and it was unintentionally destroyed
during removal. Dumbo was then moved into the location squarely behind the castle.
- This attraction's history: When Dumbo opened it has only 10 ride units. In 1990 a completely new version
of the ride was installed. Originally intended for Disneyland Paris, it was built and then put into Disneyland instead. This update
increased the capacity to 16 ride units and put in more modern ride mechanisms.
