It took several trips to Disney before we experienced Dumbo for the first time!
My first memory of the Dumbo ride at the Magic Kingdom was seeing the very long lines for it on my family’s first trip. I want to say my brothers rode it, but I have no memory of it, and I’m pretty sure I didn’t ride. I remember it was situated in the “old” fantasyland, right in front of what used to be 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (I loved that ride!) And, of course, at that time, there was only ONE Dumbo ride.
Our first few trips as a family, we totally passed up Dumbo because, again, the lines were SO long. Why wait in a long line for Dumbo when you can ride Aladdin’s Magic Carpets for a fraction of the wait? Call me a party-pooper mom, but that’s the way I roll.
Finally, in 2009 . . .
When traveling with friends in 2009, we finally decided to brave the long line at Dumbo. Ian was just 2 1/2 and it seemed as though he NEEDED to ride. So, the girls got in line with him and away they went! (picture above)
