    I heard there is a new play area for the Dumbo ride in MK since we've last visited. Is this for people waiting for the ride? We are going with a 2 year old and wondering whether to use a fast pass for this attraction, and how the play area works. Thanks!

    Hi Julie,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am so excited to hear you are planning a visit with your little one. I just love seeing Walt Disney World through the eyes of my children!

    In my opinion, Dumbo the Flying Elephant has one of the best queues in the parks. I would save my FastPass+ selection for another attraction and really enjoy this fun waiting area.

    When you arrive, a Cast Member will give you a pager (much like at a restaurant) so you can enjoy the air-conditioned play area while you wait.

    When it's your turn, the pager will light up and vibrate letting you know it's time to ride the attraction. It's such a fun area that in many cases, kiddos don't want to stop playing in order to ride! If you use a FastPass+ selection for this attraction, you will bypass the play area entirely.

    I hope this helps you plan, Julie. We'd love to answer any other questions you have. Wishing you a magical vacation!
