Here is everything you need to know about Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom’s extinct Delta Dreamflight attraction including history, fun facts, photos and more. I hope you find this listing informative and helpful!
Delta Dreamflight was an omnimover ride in the Magic Kingdom’s Tomorrowland from 1989-1996. The attraction originally opened on June 23, 1989, and was sponsored by Delta Air Lines, which is why it was named “Delta Dreamflight.” The attraction featured impressive audio-animatronic figures, immersive sets, and special effects that brought the aviation history to life. From the Wright brothers’ first flight to the futuristic space travel, Delta Dreamflight provided an entertaining and educational experience for guests of all ages.
This ride replaced the similar ride If You Could Fly when the ride sponsorship switched from Eastern Airlines to Delta. It was eventually changed to Dreamflight and then Take Flight after the Delta sponsorship ended and in 1998 closed for good. The space is now used for Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin.
