Hop inside one of 16 delightfully detailed, Dumbo-themed gondolas and take off into the sky above Magic Kingdom to soar with Dumbo as he discovers his ability to fly. During your aerial adventure around the circus, maneuver the easy-to-handle joystick inside your Dumbo gondola up or down to control just how high—or how low—you want to go. The popular attraction features jovial circus music, led by a band organ, and includes Dumbo's faithful friend, Timothy Mouse, atop a decorative hot-air balloon at the center of the attraction.
Dumbo the Flying Elephant loads very slowly, so the wait time can be long even if the line isn’t. We recommend experiencing it within the first hour after park opening or later in the evening. The queue is partially covered, but it can still be very hot if you’re waiting in the line during the middle of the day. Tad is growing out of it, but it's still one of Lily's favorites. We parents will always love it because 1) we rode it when we were young and 2) this attraction brings back so many great memories of Tad and Lily’s first trips to Magic Kingdom. It also offers great views of Fantasyland and Cinderella's Castle.
Dumbo The Flying Elephant is midway-style ride similar to the Magic Carpets of Aladdin and Triceratop Spin. It is located in Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom. The duration of the ride is 1 ½ minutes. It is geared toward younger children and is many little ones’ first Disney “ride.” Each Dumbo-themed gondola seats two people, with the smaller rider sitting on the inside. Guests must transfer from their wheelchair, motorized scooter or ECV to board the ride vehicle.
