Looks like Dumbo is thrilled at finding some buddies to pal around with in this photo, which was snapped at the Walt Disney World Resort in 1972. (A similar shot was used as one of the park’s first postcards).

What’s Dumbo thinking? Where will the new friends head to first? More importantly, what does the group think of that nice new Monorail in the background? Go ahead and “Caption This!”


  • Dumbo and the Dumbo family tree.

  • No no no….I said flap. Like this …up, down, up, down. ….oh forget it, where’s that mouse with a feather?

  • Where do you wanna go first.Epcot? Or Magic Kingdom? Or Epcot? or “Cmon, lets fly there..we can beat that”

  • …And now as you can see behind me, the newest addition to the Magic Kingdom. The folks in the imagineering department have named it the monorail. Its top speed is 35 mph! With an amazing view of the park as you travel to one of its only too strops, Tomorrowland and the Disneyland Hotel!… Our next stop is one of my personal favorites, The Dumbo Ride!… And where walking!…

  • Guy’s lets move we are going to be late for the opening of the Fantasyland Expansion! I’m going to be two rides now!

  • I’m so glad you could make it! Now, follow me and I’ll lead you into the Magic Kingdom and straight to my ride. The line gets long pretty fast, so we need to move quickly!!

  • “Okay, follow me!…Uh, guys? You’re not…hello? What’s with the leaf camouflage?”

  • Im going to DISNEYLAND!!

  • Dumbo: “Who’s the leader of the club that’s made for you and me…!!”

  • Excuse me, could you tell me where I could find the back side of water?

  • “you can fly! you can fly! you can fly! Just put this feather in your trunk!”

    • Nice reference to the movie!

  • “My Family! It’s about Time you visited!”

  • OK now everyone remember to stay with your Tour Leader, look for the flag if you get seperated! And we are walking…

  • “Come on, everybody! Here we go!!!” yes a Peter Pan reference

  • Are you all ready to board the Disney Fantasy with me?

  • “C’mon guys, sing with me! Ho, the aim of our patrol… Is a question rather droll… For to march and drill over field and hill… Is a military goal!”
