'What do you mean I'm going *back* to Disney World?'
With Walt Disney World deploying Dueling Dumbos
for 2013 in the Magic Kingdom...
...does that mean the Smithsonian has to give its Dumbo back? ;-)
No, if WDI can't build one extra Dumbo and leave that one there, they have a long road ahead then when it comes to the expansion project...
two dumbo's is a great idea, now all we need is a second space mountain and walt's dream is finally complete.
Actually, Space Mountain is already technically 2 roller coasters that are mirror images of each other.

If you're looking for a thrill, dueling Tea Cups is where it's at.
I guess the popularity of the Dumbo ride is based off kids 2-8...I know even though the wait was almost an hour last month my 3 year old screamed and kicked demanding he ride that ride. Going to the top of the elevator shaft to ride astro wasn't that thrilling to him? There is no way to move more people thru Dumbo as it stands now... the ride time is already short so a second option makes sense to me.
We just brought my daughter to the Magic Kingdom for the first time last week. She is 2 years 3 months old. Anyway, when she saw Dumbo, she almost passed our from excite for going on that. There is just something about that ride, kids want to go on it. So we waited in line, fully exposed to the unforgiving sun (more so since I am a Bostonian and don't gel with heat). A second one would be welcomed.
That makes me wonder if they have dueling, will they increase the ride time?
The point where the two Dumbos look like they are going to collide with one another is going to be awesome....
The two sets will help, and so will the new "pager" waiting system - allowing kids to play and parents to wait in the shade on bleachers.
I heard it paid a couple kids to jack one on a grad night....
Do you think they left any room in the expansion for the Snow White and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train Coaster? Do you think we will ever see that ride happen in Fantasyland?
