Favorite Rides - Dumbo

Get ready...this week we talk about one of the most popular rides in WDW.  It might not be a favorite for grownups, but it is DEFINITELY on the MUST DO list for your kids.  The one the only.....DUMBO!!!

Some Info:

  • Park: Magic Kingdom
  • Land/Area: Fantasyland
  • Height Requirements: Nope!
  • Best Suited For: Preschoolers and young children, but it is fun for ALL!
  • Warnings: For me - heights!!  I know silly, but it freaks me out when we are all the way up!
  • Fastpass:  As of now no, but when the ride is moved to the new section with the additional ride it will have a virtual queue area.
What I like About It:
What's not to like????  Dumbo is one of the most popular rides in Magic Kingdom.  The worst part about it is the LONG line that usually comes with it.  It is definitely a ride to hit as soon as you walk in.  Whether you have a preschooler or not, this is a ride to get on just because it is a classic!  :-)

Random Facts: 
The original Dumbo the Flying elephant opened in Disneyland 3 months after the park opened.  All the other Disney parks have a Dumbo ride and they all opened on opening day in their respective parks.  The ride is being moved to a circus themed area that used to be Toon Town sometime in the next year.  This is all part of the new Fantasyland expansion.
