Weathervane Wednesday ~ A collection of Weathervanes from a famous Amusement Park

Weathervane Wednesday is an on-going series of photographs I post weekly.  I started by publishing weather vanes from the Londonderry area, but now I've been finding interesting weather vanes all across New England.  Sometimes my weather vanes are whimsical, or historical, but all are interesting. Often, my readers tip me off to some very unique and unusual weather vanes, too! If you know an interesting or historical weathervane, please let me know.

Today's collection of weather vanes is from a famous California amusement park.

Do you know the location of weather vane collection #201?  Scroll down to see the answer!

The ship weather vane is atop the Haunted Mansion in Disneyland, Anaheim, California.
It is slightly different from the ship weather vane atop the Haunted Mansion in 
DisneyWorld's Magic Kingdom theme park.

This Mississippi paddleboat was seen atop a snack bar near 
Disneyland's Splash Mountain ride. 

If you hadn't guessed this one already, it is a cute Mr. Toad weather vane
from atop the towers of the Mr. Toad's Wild Ride attraction in Disney land.  

This is the pirate ship weather vane from atop the clock tower
on the Peter Pan ride in Disneyland

This cute heart weather vane is on top of Minnie Mouse's house in 
the Toon Town section of Disneyland, over looking a fountain
of Minnie's sweetheart, Mickey Mouse!

I wasn't sure about this Disney character until I Googled the name.  The chipmunk figure on the weathervane
is Gadget Hackwrench, a female character from the Rescue Ranger's cartoon series 
that starred Chip N' Dale.
The name of the ride is "Gadget's Go Coaster", a kiddie roller coaster in Toon Town, Disneyland. 

This pretty gilded horse weathervane can be seen atop an information booth 
on Disneyland's Main Street.

This weather cock is above a new section of Fantasyland in Disneyland.
It was currently under construction when we were there, but is near two new
rides being built- "Ariel's Undersea Adventure" starring the Little Mermaid and 
"The Seven Dwarf's Mine Train" roller coaster.
