A big thanks to the fine folks at Walt Disney Imagineering for making this latest video that goes behind the scenes on the creation of the Dumbo the Flying Elephant icon for the Disney Fantasy for Disney Cruise Lines. In the video Imagineers Joe Lanzisero, Bob Zalk, and Jason Abruzzese present a fascinating tale of how they ship’s stern character came to life.
