Dumbo the Flying Elephant | Disney World Description
Dumbo the Flying Elephant is a classic ride located in Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom park in Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. The ride is based on the character Dumbo, the flying elephant, from the 1941 Disney animated film of the same name.
In the ride, guests board individual ride vehicles shaped like Dumbo and are lifted into the air by a mechanical arm. The vehicles rotate and go up and down, simulating the sensation of flying like Dumbo. The ride is designed to be family-friendly and is suitable for all ages.
Dumbo the Flying Elephant is a popular attraction at Disney World and is considered a must-do ride for families with young children. The ride has undergone a renovation in recent years, adding a new interactive queue area themed after the circus from the movie, where guests can play and explore while they wait for their turn to ride.
