Magic Kingdom - Dumbo the Flying Elephant
Dumbo the Flying Elephant
Original attraction opened: 1971, second carousel opened 2012
Ride Length: 1 min 30 sec
Dumbo the Flying Elephant is located in the Storybook Circus area of Fantasyland. The colors of the attraction are striking, and the blues, reds and golds fit in perfectly with the circus theme.
The center of the carousels feature Baby Dumbo being delivered by the stork. If you look closely, you'll see the story of Dumbo from the classic animated film unfolding in a set of artwork story panels. Starting with the train Casey, Jr. arriving in town, move around the ride and watch the story develop. Around the bottom of the ride are water fountains that spill out over colored LED lights, making this a spectacular attraction to witness at night.
The two Dumbo carousels are right next to each other, rotating in opposite directions!
Tip: Look on the ground for signs that the circus has rolled into town - you'll find wagon tracks, monkey and bear "footprints", and even peanut shells dropped by Dumbo and his friends!
Guests are also able to experience an array of fun-filled family games and interactive wonders inside the Big Top interactive queue before taking to the skies on this Fantasyland favorite. Guests in the Standby queue head into the pre-boarding area to play while they wait (you are given a pager that will buzz when it's your turn to ride Dumbo). Guests using Fastpasses to experience the attraction skip the Big Top and head straight to the ride.
Handicapped Accessibility: Guests may remain in their wheelchairs to experience this attraction.
