7 Dumbo the Flying Elephant Ride in Fantasyland at Disneyland in Anaheim, California

The Dumbo the Flying Elephant ride was expected to be operative when Disneyland opened on July 17, 1955. But when the attraction arrived, the elephant cars had been painted pink to represent when characters from the 1941 animated movie saw “pink elephants on parade” during a drunken hallucination. Walt Disney objected. After they were repainted to resemble Dumbo, the attraction opened four months later.
