"Fun, but way to short."

It's fun, but the ride is way too short and the lines are always crazy long. Guess that's why they're changing up here pretty soon and adding extra Dumbo's.

Dont be discouraged by all the little kids in fantasy land this area is just as much fun for adults as it is children. Althought the line can be quite lenghty for such a short ride i insure you it i worth the wait. Once you board your flying elephant go all the way up to the highest elevation to see the one of the best views in all of disney world. This ride is where it all begain.

Expect a long wait but you can get good pictures if you wait it out. It is very cool to ride this late at night when the fireworks are going, that is the best way to get great pics.

The ride itself is not exciting for adults, but if you have children, you have to take them on this ride at least once! The best part is when you're standing in line trying to guess what color your elephant is going to be. I'm almost always purple, for some reason.
Timothy the mouse used to stand on a disco ball with a whip in his hand, but now he holds a feather, I think. I think they've also added more elephants, but I'm not 100% sure. The wait is long and it gets hot in Florida, so go on this one in the morning or early evening.

Most of the time there is a really long line fore this great ride. I would say that if you don't have that much time - skip the ride and come back when there is less of a wait (unless you have children - they'll LOVE it!). Reason is because you just go in Dumbo and go up and you have a control that lets you go up and down. It really fun but the ride duration is not that long. I wish that it was longer! This was and always will be my childhood favorite ride!

Dumbo is a MK original and really a great kid's ride. However many people seem to think that and the lines get long fast. If you want to ride it a few times, go right after the park opens. You probably sacrifice short lines for other attractions though. There are many rides like Dumbo, but this is the first.

This is a nice kid's ride, but PLEASE only go on when the line is under at least 5-10 minutes. Trust me, riding this isn't worth wasting 30 minutes of your life.

Well, I felt that I had to ride this...nostalgia, all those famous tv appearances...but by God I never imagined such a long wait for such a minor thrill!
Yes, its a must, just to say "oh I've been on that elephant" but you wont want to do it again once an hour or two have disappeared from your day...

This has to be the biggest time waster in the whole park, a 90min wait in 90 degrees for a 60sec ride.

I love that they doubled this ride to hold more people, and it has been a childhood favorite. any ride that gives you a sensation of flying is perfect. the kids will love it, and they can control how high they go.

This is a classic ride that has become a must-ride for all children visiting the park. The ride is enchanting taking guests on a trip through the skies of Fantasyland. The line however can get much too long at times and unpleasant in the hot Florida sun. If you have young children (or are a child at heart) see this either first thing or before you leave

Another Magic Kingdom original! This original E-Ticket is now targeted at kids, but it's fun for the whole family!
