Video: An Elephant Sails Over The Skies Of Disneyland
An elephant was seen moving over Disneyland on Wednesday. Well, not a real elephant.
The animatronic elephant usually found at The Jungle Cruise had a "neck issue" in January, according to Disneyland planner Veronica Wyant, meaning Disney had to remove the elephant for repairs. A video from the Orange County Register shows the elephant as it's carefully dropped via helicopter back into its spot by pilot Ken Krauss of Blackhawk Helicopters.
A tree with a snake wrapped around it was also airlifted, as Disneyland decided the snake needed a new tree.
The elephant has been at the park since the 1950s, while the tree was added in the 1980s. Jungle Cruise will open back up on May 6.
