Dumbo the Flying Elephant

Generations of children have happily soared above Fantasyland on Dumbo the Flying Elephant. This iconic attraction spins up to 3 passengers each in 16 elephants around an ornate pylon topped by Dumbo's best friend, Timothy Q. Mouse.

Dumbo's Flight

Feel a lighthearted thrill as Dumbo lifts off the ground, leaving the cares of the world behind. You control the aerial adventure by joystick: climb toward the clouds or "trunk"-dive back to earth. It's a high-flying adventure that lifts your spirits and reminds you that, if you believe in yourself, anything is possible!


Dumbo the Flying Elephant is inspired by the classic Disney movie, Dumbo, about a circus elephant born with abnormally large ears who discovers that he has the unlikely ability to fly.

The Organ

The band organ located under the circus tent behind Dumbo the Flying Elephant is an authentic Gavioli band organ, also known as a fairground organ, built in 1915. The band organ faithfully recreates the sound of several different instruments as it plays a merry collection of favorite Disney tunes.

Photo Opportunity

It can be difficult to snap a picture of a loved one as Dumbo the Flying Elephant whirls past. Fortunately, there is a replica of a Dumbo gondola located behind the main attraction. It's ideal for getting the perfect snapshot to remember your Disneyland Park experience forever.
