Dumbo the Flying Elephant is very similar to The Magic Carpets of Aladdin, in that it is a traditional fairground ride, but with ride cars that look like dumbo.
The attraction was recently moved into the new fantasyland area and a second Dumbo ride identical to the first was added to lower queue times.
The ride takes you soaring above the Fantasyland crowds, and lets you see right across the land. There are sixteen 'gondolas' which circle a hot air balloon, with Timothy Q. Mouse atop. The young kids will love this ride as they can control how high or low Dumbo will fly!
