    Has anyone ever seen Dumbo at the parks?

    I'm referring to the character Dumbo and not the ride.

    I was wondering if anyone here ever seen Dumbo out in the Disneyland parks before and where have you seen him at? Does he show up often or is he hard to find?

    I kind of wonder what he looks like too.

    Thank you for stopping by.

    The only time I have seen Dumbo as a character was on the Electrical Parade. Otherwise I've never seen him

    I've never seen him at the park other than on his ride.

    Re: Has anyone ever seen Dumbo at the parks?

    I remember seeing Dumbo years ago, mainly in Fantasyland and around the hub. But the costume wasn't right. He had hideous looking fangs and stuff.

    No, just kidding. He looked like Dumbo. If I recall the CM had outstretched arms which formed the top of his ears so they could flap around and stuff.

    He use to be part of the Christmas Parade on a float that looked like a barn on fire. There were 'firemen' running around to help him out.

    He does not have the best costume around which is sad because the movie he is soooooo cute and when I see him on MSELP (always main street to me) he is just not the same.

    What a great idea for a float!

    Seriously, that's terrible.


    It would be nice to see Dumbo around. I bet kids would flock over to him and want to give him hugs.

    That float was right out of the movie. Clowns as Fireman around the set peice of a burning barn. I think it was very high and that was the first time Timothy used the "Magic Feather" to make him fly.

    I knew I wasn't going crazy and it wasn't just and idea. I've only seen one picture of that float and was trying to find it, but no luck so far.

    hmmm. I can help with that.

    Here's the float in 1979 as part of a circus parade.



    Then here it is in 1986 as part of the Christmas parade.



    Enjoy.
