Dumbo long has been one of the iconic rides in the Magic Kingdom, as children and their parents share a ride on the back of one of these flying elephants. It's a low-capacity ride, leading to long waits, so in 2012, Disney moved Dumbo to a new "Storybook Circus"-themed section of Fantasyland and added a second carousel, doubling the ride's capacity and reducing the wait. To further ease the pain of still-long wait-times, Disney now also offers an indoor play area for kids while they wait, and restaurant-style beepers for parents to alert them when it is almost the family's turn to ride.


A classic, it's strange i will give a CARNIVAL ride a perfect.
Iconic, classic, and probably the spinner at the resort besides Orbiter. You should probably ride this at least once, because it's a WDW classic and everyone knows this ride. It’s a rite of passage for all kids, but thanks to new lighting short waits, a cool circus theme, and now TWO Dumbos, it’s now a fun attraction, day or night, for guests of all ages to enjoy. It's a classic with new upgrades to keep it fresh. There is so much nostalgic fun for this ride. 6/10
A Walt Disney World classic. Now that another one has been added, the line moves much faster- and the interactive queue is great, if not a little confusing.
