    Got to ride Dumbo for the First time ever saturday

    I am still trying to unwind from my day at the park. And I wanted to share with everyone that since Dumbo is now ADA, I CAN RIDE IT. And I did for the first time ever. While I was waiting in line, I actually got teary eyed. And then once I got one it, I couldn't help but laugh and giggle. They have it to where the whole side of Dumbo opens up to where the opening is nice and large to get in. And I thought I might have had to sit a little sideways. Well I actually sat in it with no problem. So thank you Disneyland for making a ride that I couldn't do before now available to me. I will have to do it again the next time I go. Good night..Or should I say good morning.

    YAY That's great you got to ride it finally! So happy for you. I haven't been on dumbo in ages. My family had a scary incident last time we all went on it where a cast member got knocked down by the ear of the dumbo my mom and sister were in and no one has been willing to go on it with me since. It totally traumatized my mom against the ride I think.

    It's a great classic ride and I'm glad they finally made it accessible!

    Re: Got to ride Dumbo for the First time ever saturday

    I always get to ride Dumbo at least once on each trip. SInce the park was not that crowded when I was there last week, I actually rode it four times. My first ride at night. I do love the ride. I guess my Dumbo age is probably about five. It puts a smile on my face. I know the ride is somewhere between a minute, and two minutes, but it's pure joy.

    Glad that you finally were able to enjoy the simple joy and pleasure of a ride on Dumbo Margo.

    Ditto, it makes you reflect back on "Don't take anything for granted."
    Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.

    So it's just a bigger door to make getting in easier? That's clever. I'm glad you got to ride it! I rarely ride it but it can be a fun thing to do, like the Carrousel.

    I went to the park yesterday being that it was DCA's 10 Birthday thinking they would do something because 10 yrs is a big milestone, but they didn't do anything. They gave the CMs a button and a cupcake. Which a CM who was walking with me to Toy Story, ended up giving me his button and I didn't even ask for him to do so.
    Then after riding on Toy Story, I was hungry so I went back over to the Village Haus and had the Pastrami burger. Then the friend and I went on Dumbo again. And yes this will be another favorite ride for me in Fantasyland.
