    They sang their swan song many years ago.....part of the slow fade from former glories.

    Re: What happened to the Swans in Sleeping Beauty Castle Moat?

    After DL's 50th Anniversary, DL had the 2.2 years of 2.3 Million Dreams

    During that "special" promotion both swans transmogrified themselves into "Dream Swans"

    Here is an extremely rare photo of both Swans, one which had already transmogrified into an infamous "Dream Swan" and the remaining real living Swan.

    After both transmogrified, both "Dream Swans" disappeared, even before the 2.2 years had ended, leaving the castle moat lifeless and dreamless.

    The feathers need to be removed from the Imagineers that worked their voodoo tragic magic on beautiful Swans, and they themselves should consider taking a transmofied form.

    Not as good as the real thing. Nor will the swan weathervane in the new princess meet and greet area.

    I heard the swans were laid off due to the recession.

    Yeah, there would be swans transforming into human princesses after the new Fantasyland Faire opens this Spring.

    One of their kids didn't get picked to participate in a show, so they vowed to never return.

    But first, they stopped to honk at the CMs in City Hall.

    I heard they're now part of the Mardi Gras Bash special food offerings.

    The swans were one those little things that added so much. I miss them. Too bad they can't come back. I'm sure the technology exists to overcome any potential problems (such as toxic dye and penny-eating). After all, the swans had been there in the past. Alternatively, I'm sure an audio-animatronic version could suffice.

    It's neither the dye nor the pennies, it's the pyrotechnics. The "technology" does exist to allow the swans to return: simply stop shooting off pyrotechnics near the castle. We can't have both because swans don't tolerate this well, and they don't tolerate repeated wrangling to temporarily get them out of the way either. The only actual technological solution would be animatronic swans, as you mentioned, but I'm unsure how well that would go over.

    Oh, I'd forgotten about the pyro stuff! Hmm. Well, reverting to old-school fireworks (i.e. only high in the air) would solve that. As well as another issue -- the stupid hub-crowding! Sounds good to me -- kill two birds (uh, maybe not the best expression here) with one stone!

    It would also solve the issue with closing Fantasyland during the fireworks, so that would be three birds...
