ages 11-15 Not recommended for adults or teens. Teens find it very boring
ages 16-adult Unless reliving childhood memories, this ride is not recommended for adults.
senior citizens The most thrilling element of the ride is the big drop which is easily visible from the outside. If you think you can handle the plunge, the rest of the attraction is quite wonderful and is one of Disney’s best.

Disney Tip

Thanks to the Fantasyland expansion there are now two Dumbo rides going at once, but it is still one of the longest lines in the park due to its popularity with the younger kids. While the ride only lasts about 90 seconds, the wait time can be over an hour. If you’re planning on riding Dumbo the Flying Elephant, arrive at park opening and make it the first stop of the day.
