Presentation of the attraction

Dumbo The Flying Elephant is an iconic family attraction located in Fantasyland Park at Disneyland Paris. This attraction, which is featured in almost every Disney theme park worldwide, is based on the classic 1941 animated film “Dumbo”.

In this attraction, visitors have the chance to fly high into the sky aboard their very own flying elephant, just like Dumbo in the film. Each elephant is designed to resemble Dumbo, with large ears and a circus hat on its head. The vehicles can go up and down, giving passengers control over the height of their flight.

Dumbo The Flying Elephant is a charming and enjoyable attraction for children, offering panoramic views of the park and a gentle, tranquil journey through the air. The elephants move in a circle, reminiscent of traditional carousel rides, but with an extra touch of Disney magic thanks to the addition of flight.

In addition to the attraction itself, there’s also a colorful statue of Timothy Q. Mouse, Dumbo’s best friend, holding a feather – the object that gives Dumbo the confidence to fly.
