Dumbo the Flying Elephant Interactive Queue Review


I am in LOVE LOVE LOVE with the new interactive queue's popping up all over Walt Disney World.  As a parent of little ones, 4 and 1, I find it hard to keep them occupied and entertained in the lines for attractions in the parks.  Usually I will skip an attraction if it has over a 20 minute wait, but not Dumbo!  The "Play Before You Ride" idea is genius in my opinion, but it confuses a lot of guests.  The "line" starts by entering the circus tent and picking up a pager, similar to pagers handed out at restaurants. Your children are now free to climb, slide, and explore the play area while you wait for your turn to ride the attraction.  Three reasons I love this are 1) plenty of seating for parents to relax and watch, 2) it's air-conditioned (!) and 3) it's the perfect place to let the kids run around safely and get some energy out.  Once your pager goes off, you are ready to head out and ride on a flying elephant.

This attraction does participate in FASTPASS, but you will completely bypass the play area.
