    Goodbye, Golden Vehicles

    This is probably old news to some, but when I was at Disneyland yesterday (waiting in line for Dumbo), I noticed that Dumbo #14 is no longer gold. After we sat down, I aked a CM when that happened and he said it was pretty recently, like after Labor Day.

    At our next stop, Casey Jr, a CM there confirmed that all the Golden Vehicles were gone or going soon and he was glad for it. He said it was such a huge pain for him and the other CM's to try to keep guests happy when there is only ONE golden Dumbo, carrousel horse, etc. Some guests just stayed in line for several turns to get the gold vehicle and a few even offered bribes to the CM's manning the attraction. (Side Note: Casey Jr. itself is gold and not scheduled to be repainted until the next refurb shutdown in Dec. or thereabouts)

    The photo-op golden vehicles are still in place, next to the attractions themselves, but they may be gone soon as well.

    Looks like Disneyland is winding down the longest Birthday Bash in recorded history.

    I was one of those spoiled guests who would request to ride the golden vehicle - and I am proud to say "I rode them all!"

    Thanks to the gracious CMs who let me wait out one cycle on Dumbo, several cars on autopia, and let me be first through the gate on the teacups. I got the rest all on my own - by luck

    I have never been in any of the golden vechicles, but it was never that important to me. It was fun seeing them the first time...

    I like the photo op cars, paint them a regular color and keep them out. Fun for group pics

    Don't know about that. I saw a recently repainted Casey Jr waiting backstage on Sat. I'm expecting that they will just switch the cars and repaint the gold one while the other is opperating.

    My grandson got to ride the golden horse on the carousel. He liked that. I was surprised that he agreed to ride the carousel with me. He usually thinks he too old for that. Sean is 13.

    Re: Goodbye, Golden Vehicles

    I never rode the gold vehicles, never had the burning desire too, but would've been happy if I had. Glad they are getting taken away, but I agree with demento that the photo ops should be repainted and kept. Those can make for some really good pictures.

    No doubt! At first I thought it was cool, and then I thought ah well, whatever, now, I too am beginning to look forward to a "normal" park. However, I did enjoy and will miss the lamp posts, the crowns and the fireworks!

    Agreed! Then over and over and over..... Never thought I'd go 3 times in a year and half and see that other than pirates and HM, nothing (visual)changed in the park!

    Re: Goodbye, Golden Vehicles

    Well I can understand how people have grown tired of the 50th celebration. It began way beack in May of last year. That's over 16 months ago. With that said, I enjoyed seeing the sparkly golden vehicles, the two times that I visited the Disneyland Resort.

    Re: Goodbye, Golden Vehicles

    Only ever rode the gold Dumbo. Won't ever forget it too. I was sitting in there waiting and a 4 year old ran up and started yelling at me, "HEY!!! HEY!!! HEYYYYY!!!!" then ran off to another Dumbo.

    Re: Goodbye, Golden Vehicles

    Does anyone know how long the golden photo ops will be up? I still haven't gotten my pic taken in the pirate ship!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    As of Friday, September 15, it was still there. Talked to a CM though and he said they will probably be changing it soon from the gold ship to a regular one.
