Dumbo the Flying Elephant

See Where Dumbo Soars at Disney Parks Around the World

By Nicole Nalty

Our favorite flying elephant is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year—the classic Disney film Dumbo debuted on October 23, 1941. Almost as iconic as the film itself is the Disney theme park attraction, Dumbo the Flying Elephant.

Making its debut in Disneyland park just a month after the park’s opening, Dumbo the Flying Elephant is quite possibly the most recognizable attraction throughout the world of Disney Parks. Some of us may remember soaring above King Arthur Carrousel in Disneyland park, or behind Cinderella Castle in Magic Kingdom park; newer generations might have first memories of flying with Dumbo in the Gardens of Imagination at Shanghai Disneyland. While you can find Dumbo in the sky at every Disney Resort around the world, each view is unique to its location. Here’s where you can see an elephant fly:
