Happy Birthday to Dumbo! 

On this day in 1955 Dumbo opened at Disneyland. 
When was the last time you rode Dumbo?

                                     Awake.                                                                          Asleep.

One of the last times we rode Dumbo was back in late January. We were heading out of the park, when we noticed there was no wait for the flying elephant. My son was starting to get tired, but we decided to have one last ride. I'll be honest, we rarely go on this ride only because the wait is always at least thirty minutes. So we walked right on, sat down, buckled our safety strap, and smiled for a picture. As soon as we smiled, one of us closed his eyes and was out for the night.  His first ride lasted a whole 3 seconds. That's okay, there will be plenty of other chances.
