Fun Find Friday

 

September 2, 2016

Location: Tomorrowland, Magic Kingdom

Today's Fun Find Friday starts off with a look at the following picture from Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger:

Does anything look out of place to you? It should! Before I explain why, let's travel back to 1989! When you ask many Disney guests today what attractions once stood where Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin currently sits most of them would have no idea. Due to this, it's time for a short history.

In 1989, Disney opened up an attraction in this space known as Delta Dreamflight. The attraction took guests on a journey through the history of flight while highlighting the attraction's sponsor, Delta. The attraction used the same track as Buzz Lightyear and in the first scene of the attraction (where currently guests can find the giant robots) guests would pass by a farm scene where several animals were found fleeing the planes flying overhead.

This brings us back to the picture found above. While most of the animals found in the picture are various forms of aliens that don't exist anywhere else in the Disney universe, we can also find a group of chickens towards the bottom. So why the chickens? You guessed it! They were originally found in Delta Dreamflight and just refused to leave the building when the attraction was changed over
