Big Fun in the Big Top

When the second phase of Dumbo the Flying Elephant opens — scheduled for July — waiting in line will become as much of an event as the ride itself. As guests arrive, they’ll receive a circus ticket pager that will virtually hold their place and notify them when it’s their turn to board the attraction, leaving them free to explore the interactive wonders inside the big top while they wait to take to the skies. Dumbo the Flying Elephant is part of the expansion project which nearly doubles the size of Fantasyland, a multiyear project that began opening in phases in March 2012 at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.
