Photo Spot: Disneyland’s Pile of Pachyderms

How many Disney elephants can you name?

Dumbo. Colonel Hathi. Tantor. Heffalumps. Bing Bong? And how about those Pink Elephants certain Disney characters saw when a little tipsy! Yup, they count. And then there’s these guys:

This likely depicts the scene from the original animated Dumbo when the elephants had to make a pachyderm tower while standing on a ball. That didn’t end well! It looks like these brass elephants are doing a better job.
