Hippos Attack!

Next time you take the Jungle Cruise ride at Disneyland, you don't have to worry about the hippos attacking. For 40 years the boat captains had defended their passengers with pistols, albeit firing blanks. Then, in 2001 the park became more politically correct, and disarmed the boat crews.

With the 50th anniversary of the park approaching, the management is working on "restoring the magic." This includes giving the boat skippers their guns back, as well as giving the horses on Main Street their name tags again, and returning the more gut-wrenching moves to the Mad Hatter ride. I hope Walt would have been pleased.
