Tips & Fun Facts

Raise the lever up and down to make Dumbo fly!

Opened on October 17, 1955. It was remodeled and relocated in 1983.
When former President Harry Truman visited Disneyland® Park in 1957, Dumbo was one of the few attractions he didn't ride. Truman didn't want to be associated with a character related to the Republican party.
The attraction was originally intended to be based on the pink elephants from "Dumbo," but Walt objected, not wanting an attraction based on a hallucination.
Background music is provided by a 1915 band organ.
Timothy Mouse who stands on the central hub started off holding a whip, that was then changed to a feather, and then again back to a whip.
