Dumbo the Flying Elephant

Dumbo the Flying Elephant

An Attraction in Disneyland

Last updated: October 8, 2023

At a Glance
A nice, tame, happy children's ride based on the lovable Disney flying elephant. It also bears the distinction of opening during Disneyland's first 30 days. An upgraded rendition of a ride that can be found at state fairs and amusement parks across the country. Shortcomings notwithstanding, Dumbo is the favorite Disneyland Park attraction of most preschoolers. A lot of readers take us to task for lumping Dumbo in with state-fair midway rides. These comments from a reader in Armdale, Nova Scotia, are representative:
I think you have acquired a jaded attitude. I know [Dumbo] is not for everybody, but when we took our oldest child (then just 4), the sign at the end of the line said there would be a 90-minute wait. He knew and he didn't care, and he and I stood in the hot afternoon sun for 90 blissful minutes waiting for his 90-second flight. Anything that a 4-year old would wait for that long and that patiently must be pretty special.

This is a slow-loading ride that we recommend you bypass unless you are on a very relaxed touring schedule. If your kids are excited about Dumbo, try to get them on the ride before 10 a.m., during the parades or Fantasmic!, or just before the park closes. Also, consider this advice from an Arlington, Virginia, mom:
Grown-ups, beware! Dumbo is really a tight fit with one adult and two kids. My kids threw me out of their Dumbo and I had to sit in a Dumbo all by myself. Pretty embarrassing, and my husband got lots of pictures.
