According to Walt Disney's horticulturalist, Morgan Evans, "Planted in 1896 by an early rancher, it was a stalwart and revered resident of his front lawn, admired by three generations of children and adults. One member of the family was married beneath it. When the owner of the land sold his acreage to Walt Disney in 1954, he requested that this venerable palm be preserved. Walt was more than happy to oblige, but since the tree stood in the middle of Section C of the projected parking lot, he ordered that it be carefully 'balled,' lifted tenderly from its old home and trundled, all fifteen tons of it, to Adventureland."
Today you can find this Canary Island date palm between Jungle Cruise and Indian Jones Adventure.
