Disney legend Marc Davis wasn’t just the animator of Tinker Bell, Thumper, Maleficent and Cruella De Vil. He was also one of the Imagineers behind some of Disneyland’s most popular rides!

When the original, ‘serious’ version of The Jungle Cruise failed to wow Disneyland crowds, Walt Disney asked Davis to come up with some gags for the ride. Shown above are some of Davis’ original sketches for two of the most iconic scenes in The Jungle Cruise — the elephant pool and the trapped safari. It’s amazing to see how little was altered in the transition from drawings to the completed ride.

They say things like they didn’t work hard enough, or made too many mistakes. They don’t understand that they weren’t afforded the same opportunities."

Today is Copernicus’s 541th birthday. You may remember Copernicus as the man who said “Hey, what if the Earth went around the sun?” To which the Catholic Church replied “Hey, what if we set you on fire?”

The shape of the umbrella was also inspired by nature. “The power of solar energy inspired us to design this synthetic cloud,” Widdershoven says. The form is aerodynamic, so the umbrella won’t blow over in strong winds, and the fabric is waterproof, so it can last as long as possible.
