    He's adorable. It looks like from the photos the CM inside has some sort of control over his rather large ears.

    Wow...I was surprised to see that there was an actual Dumbo character to meet and greet. I heard that they were going to place a Dumbo ride "car" out for people to climb into and take a photo while it was down for rehab.

    I'm afraid that what I heard was that that is what exacly has happened now,and that, since the dumbo vehicle is out there they have discontinued the meet and greet.

    That's too bad. I'm sure that the little kids (and big kids! ) were probably really enjoying the meet and greet.

    Is it true that the first child to ride Dumbo in the morning gets to ride with Mickey or Minnie? I've seen pictures of it but wasn't sure if that was something they did everyday

    That's a great question...I would like to know the answer to that too. I've heard of people getting the opportunity, but I do not think it happens everyday because since we had our first Son, Fantasyland is the very first place we head as soon as the gates open and usually Dumbo is first. I've never actually seen one of the characters on this ride...or any ride for that matter! What a magical moment to have that happen!

    Take a closer look. (imagine you are in the costume if you need to) I can not believe WDI designed a costume this way.


    I will be heading to the MK to take pics on TUesday. Will stop by and see what current news I find.

    I have a similar story, but it's not about Dumbo...

    One day, me and my family were in the park very early. And I empahsize very. I was about 6, and it was my little sister's first visit, and she was 4. We were the first ones into Toontown. Just as we round the corner, we see Goofy. Goofy throws his arms up into the air and sprints toward the stroller that my sister is in. He picks her up and carries her the the Barnstormer, where she got to ride with Goofy in the front car! Luckily, my dad was quick to get the camera rolling, and we have the whole thing on video tape!

    Goofy still rides on the first flight of the Barnstormer.

    I did in fact see the Dumbo flying car sitting in front of the ride, but Dumbo, himself, was no where to be found.
