Climb on Dumbo's back and let him take you on a charming carousel ride high over Fantasyland.

Undoubtedly one of the Magic Kingdom's most famous attractions, Dumbo the Flying Elephant takes guests for a trip high above Fantasyland in jumbo size models of the famous elephant himself.

In total there are 16 Dumbo shaped cars on the carrousel style attraction, each capable of holding up to 2 people. Once the ride starts to turn, guests can control their own Dumbo with the use of a small lever which makes the car rise and fall.

Particularly popular with small children the ride attracts some of the longest lines in the park which tend to stay long throughout the day. The best times to enjoy the attraction are early in the morning (as soon as the park opens), during parades or (best of all) late in the evening when the whole of Fantasyland is beautifully illuminated making it even more magical

Since its opening the queue area of the Dumbo has been given a tented roof to keep guests dry during inclement weather.

While technically similar in design to Orbitron the elephants do not rise as higher the spaceships and go around in a much gentler, slower pace, more enjoyable for younger children and more fitting to the atmopshere of Fantasyland. Keep an eye out for Dumbo’s best friend Timothy Mouse who can be seen perched atop the ride holding onto the magic feather.

Tips

As at Orbitron the Dumbo-queues move slowly and even grow to bigger length as at its Discoveryland counterpart due mainly to Dumbo’s massive appeal to young visitors.

It’s fair to say if guests enjoy one they should enjoy the other, too. Those who decide to ride both should try to ride Dumbo as early as possible.

Parents who want to let their child fly twice with Dumbo should enter the queueing-area separately with approximately 60 persons in between each other. As the child is landing with Dumbo the first time, the second one of his parents is near the entrance and the child can proceed toward him to ride again.
