I believe Lumpy is not in the actual attraction of Winnie the Pooh because he is such a fairly new character. Yes, he is my all-time favorite, but Disney has become slow over the last couple years attending to the popular characters which the public enjoys. It seems to me that they are spending too much time on unnecessary publicity for things that really shouldn't get much publicity (the 2nd and 3rd direct to DVD movies, which are cute, but really not anything astonishing or original for that matter) or they publicize what they hope to release but gets pushed back (i.e. Disney's Fairies movie... :'( )...
It's a stretch, but that's what I think. Maybe Disney finally has just gotten to big for it's own good. I guess it's up to fans like us to let them know where they are lacking.
I thought the Heffalump movie was released in theatres.. hrmm. Im not saying he should be put in the ride, i mean, the ride is based on the halloween Pooh cartoon. But he should be available like Marie or something. I mean, there is no Aristocats attraction, but they sell her!
I asked a cast member at Pooh Corner about Lumpy, and he called the merchandise hq of the park and said "Yes, i have a guest here and she is inquiring about any merchandise with Lumpy thee Heffalump" It was in the cutest voice too. But no dice. They had the Heffabees though.
The UK Disney store has the BEST Lumpy merchandise, thats how i fell in love with him!
