August 28, 2003 – Lucky the Dinosaur is Introduced in Disney California Adventure

“If you’re not familiar with Lucky, he’s a free-roaming, people-loving, 12-foot-long, 450-pound dinosaur who has occasionally appeared at Disney Parks.”

On August 28, 2003, the first audio-animatronic figure to walk freely and interact with guests, known as Lucky the Dinosaur, was introduced in Disney California Adventure park. It took Imagineers five years to create the nine feet tall, 450-pound figure. Lucky is also notable for walking on two legs and pushing a cart of flowers, as well as personally interacting with passing guests. After working in Disney California Adventure, Lucky was moved to Disney’s Animal Kingdom in 2005, and then was relocated to Hong Kong Disneyland.
