By Paul F. “Mammoth Expert” Anderson

In honor of the Mammoth Disney History Institute announcement coming this weekend (be sure to tune in), I decided to honor (and promote) the idea by reaching back into time (WAY back into time) to Walt Disney’s involvement in the 1964 New York World’s Fair … and his use of Mammoths in said event. Back in the 1990s I wrote a lengthy (124,000  words) “essay” on Disney and the 1964 New York World’s Fair. Moreover, I have done a number of presentations on this subject (the last being at the D23 Disneyland Destination D last year). Many DHI readers recall Walt Disney’s Magic Skyway Through the Ford Wonder Rotunda, which featured a segment on prehistoric times. First the dinosaurs as seen from the comforts of your own Ford Motor Car; then on to the dawn of man and the age of the woolly mammoth! So in keeping with the theme of the upcoming Disney History Institute mammoth announcement I present Disney mammoths from Disney history.

As always, click on images for greater detail. Enjoy!
