Board a flying Dumbo as he gracefully lifts you up for a magical flight, high into the sky! Dumbo The Flying Elephant attraction at Disneyland is based off the 1941 Animated Film. It is the only attraction located in all six Disney castle parks throughout the world. Dumbo the Flying Elephant was supposed to be an opening day attraction, but instead opened a month later in August of 1955. Timothy Q. Mouse sits atop the fountain and a hot air balloon, with a whip in hand as he directs you while you are in the sky. Feel the wind on your face as well as the sights of Fantasyland as Dumbo glides through the air. Each Dumbo has a different color scheme along with a number. A Cast Member will assign you a number to a specific Dumbo. Use the joystick to go higher and lower. The Dumbo spins counter clockwise around the fountain as a circus melody plays. As you exit the attraction, there is a replica Dumbo where you can stop and snap a picture.
Location & Wait Times
Dumbo The Flying Elephant is located just through the back side of Sleeping Beauty Castle in Fantasyland. Wait times seem to average around 30 minutes. This delightful ride is loved by so many, especially little ones! Times for this ride can change to accommodate fireworks.
The queue for this attraction is all outdoors. The outdoor waiting area is newly shaded by a circus tent. The tent has brightly lit bulbs underneath. From the line you can see many other other Fantasyland attractions such as, King Arthur’s Carousel directly in front of it and Casey Jr. Circus Train, as well as StoryBook Land Canal Boats behind it. To the left is Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride and on the right is Pinocchio’s Daring Journey and the newly renovated Snow White’s Enchanted Wish.
