Dumbo the Flying Elephant

Dumbo the Flying Elephant

An Attraction in Magic Kingdom

Last updated: March 2, 2024

At a Glance

A sweet, happy children’s ride based on the lovable flying pachyderm. Parents and kids sit in small fiberglass elephants mounted on long metal arms, which spin around a central axis. Controls inside each vehicle allow you to raise the arm, making you spin higher off the ground. Despite being little different from rides at state fairs and carnivals in parking lots, Dumbo is the favorite Magic Kingdom attraction of many younger children.

Wait times average less than 30 minutes. If you do find yourself with a wait, a covered queue offers interactive elements that your kids can play with to pass the time in line. This Glenelg, Maryland, mother of two preschoolers is a fan:

The Dumbo waiting area is fantastic for young kids. That’s right—what my kids look forward to most is not the actual Dumbo ride but the playground that Disney created as the waiting area.

If Dumbo is essential to your child’s happiness, ride after dinner; not only are the crowds smaller at night, but the lighting and effects make the ride much prettier then. Or you can try to ride following the afternoon parade, if it’s performed.

If you want to ride twice with a minimal wait, have two adults get in line on the same side of Dumbo, and allow between 32 and 64 people to get between the first adult and child and the second adult. Pass the child to the second adult when the first ride is over.
