Flying high on Dumbo [VIDEO]


Dumbo The Flying Elephant says Disney World to me. I don’t know why, but I have fond memories of the ride. It was one of our first rides as a family when we got to Disney World two years ago and it was the first ride in which I was able to take all of my girls.

Waiting for Dumbo

This picture. I’m not sure why, but it catches my breath!

Before we got on the ride, we recorded a video for Daddy. It was a little about time killing and a lot about letting him know we were missing him and wishing he was there with us, too.

I forgot we made this for Mr Serious before he joined us! #dumbo #disneysmmoms

We were fortune to have a special experience as a part of the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration that allowed us early entry into the park and a ride on Dumbo that was captured on camera. Because it was special, we filled that Dumbo seat super full and the girls and I all went in one (I wouldn’t recommend this!)

Because we were so full, there was a lot of conversation and maybe a little too much bossing around on my part (but good grief, I was getting whiplash!)

It’s still a very special memory that I’m so grateful to have!

And after, the oldest got a picture of all of us in the staged Dumbo ride area. Baby B is in there….


We had to ride it again later that day without a full elephant! In fact, the oldest two each took their own solo ride so they could completely control their ride. This girl and I had our own special ride!

As a part of Disney Social Media Moms Celebration, I received complimentary items, special discounts and other exciting benefits, such as food and entertainment, from Walt Disney World. However, all opinions of this event are my own.

  1. Oh I love this. Poor Baby B looks terrified though. I can’t wait to go back and ride again.

    1. I think if she had a little more room she might have been happier..but yeah, terrified!

  2. I love how full your elephant is. B’s reaction is too cute, poor girl is like ummm, no. Solid ground please. If I just turn this way it will all be over!

    1. Oh, my elephant is so full! You can’t even see “I!” She turned around on another ride too and grandma got in trouble. Whoops!
