    What happened to the Swans in Sleeping Beauty Castle Moat?

    I know that they have been a long time gone.
    I was watching the Blue Sky video on the new Fantasy Faire, and the CM mentioned the swans.

    Whatever happened to the Swans?

    No, I won't accept that they ended up on the menu at the Bengal BBQ :-)

    Forgive me if this has been asked before.

    Good question, I've been wondering where they 'flew' off too myself.
    Little and broken, but still good.

    Good question, I've been wondering about this as well.

    EDIT: Looks like I'm not the only one!

    Haven't you heard of the new hot wings being served at the Golden Horseshoe.

    There was recently some work on the waterway so the Swans were removed.

    My understanding is due to the construction work on Fantasy Faire, for the safety of the swans, they were temporarily moved.

    The swans were being put in danger during the fireworks and some other things around the castle that were causing danger for the swans. They've been gone for years now, unfortunately.

    I heard they were leased to Disneyland, and no they no longer are. I haven't seen them in a quite some time.

    They will come back when the Peoplemover returns.

    Oh yeah, the fireworks would put a damper on things if you lived in the moat.
    Especially the pinwheels.

    I'll add to the hearsay. I've heard that they were getting sick from wither the dye in the water or the foliage around the moat. Also heard raccoons ate one.

    On another site I read that they were eating the pennies in the moat.

    The general consensus of the rumors point to a good reason for them leaving.

    I believe they where gone in 2005 before the 50th Anniversey started cause of the firework wheels that is in the water by the castle.

    I heard they got fed up with the costs of their APs and quit renewing them.
