Disneyland Elephant Gets A Lift

When a Jungle Cruise elephant reaches that stage in its life when a “tune-up” is needed, you can’t just walk them out for some TLC. That’s largely because they’re bolted to the floor, but also unless you’re Lucky the Dinosaur, most AA’s don’t walk. So… Read More »Disneyland Elephant Gets A Lift

Hump Day Humor

Congratulations, you made it to Wednesday. Here’s are a couple funny videos to get you over the hump and moving toward the weekend.

I’ve not seen it myself, but many who have report that the attraction has been returned to its former glory (well, for the most part).

The chief complaint is that the new facial technology brings the audio-animatronic figure too close to the uncanny valley. This new form of hybrid figure has facial movements controlled via electronics and body movements controlled the old fashioned hydrolic way. Apparently Tony Baxter says that all AA’s will be hybrids going forward. Have you see it, let us know what you think in the comments below.

More details on the new show below the jump. Also visit’s coverage of the re-opening.
