    Gotta be Astro Orbiter. I love the feeling of being up so high and the way you have to take the elevator kind of reminds me of being an astronaut. Awesome elements with all of the planets as well.

    I agree. Astro Orbiter is the best. The others are all identical to each other with different fiberglass pieces on the ride. The height, "arrival sequence" and placement of Astro Orbiter makes it by far the best.

    I like the Magic Carpets because you can also tilt back and forth a little. And you have to dodge the spitting camel. (or not, if it is a hot day)

    Re: what is your favorite dumbo style ride at WDW

    I voted Astro Orbiter, because it goes far higher (thus giving great views of Tomorrowland) than any of the other Dumbo style rides.
    I like Dumbo because it is the first Disney ride I ever rode way back when I was 4 years old. Plus it's a classic.

    I have never been on The Magic Carpets of Aladdin or Triceratops Spin, and IMO they should have never been built since they are basically the exact same thing as Dumbo.

    One Fish, Two..whoops, wrong park.

    I have to put Magic Carpets as my personal favorite, though Astro Orbiter is the best overall with it being a great centerpice to Tomorrowland. (Unlike DL's which is at ground level.)

    Astro Orbiter; although, as a kid, I was always afraid I'd fall out; they only had a thin, loose piece of material "holding" you in, and because I was small at the time, I'd slide all the way to the outside of the "ship". Scary! Yet I kept coming back. The only thing I hate is the long wait for the elevator.

    I voted for Dumbo. He's a classic. HATE the movie...LOVE the ride

    But, I love Aladdin cause it has more room. You can fit the whole family

    Aladdin because of the wheelchair accessible carpet - it was awesome seeing my mom get off the ground for the first time in 29 years!

    Re: what is your favorite dumbo style ride at WDW

    Would you all believe that I never got to ride Dumbo, but I always wanted to. The one and only time I went as a kid just, don't remember why but just did get to probably ran out of time. And everytime I have gone now as an adult, the line is always too long. But I have did ride the Astro Orbitor twice, once at 8 and then 20 years later, and I felt like a kid again so that got my vote for my favorite

    Never rode Aladdin's Carpet or Triceratop Spin either.

    for me it's Astro Orbiter

    ... on a side note, I prefer the Dumbo at DL to the one at WDW. Flying over the water is cool.
