PHOTOS: Dumbo the Flying Elephant Queue Playground Reopens with Limited Distancing Measures at Magic Kingdom

The playground within the Dumbo the Flying Elephant queue in Magic Kingdom has reopened, the first Walt Disney World theme park playground to do so since the COVID-19 closure.


The interactive queue for Dumbo the Flying Elephant first opened with New Fantasyland back in 2012. Inside the tent, guests can get a pager and then relax while kids play in the circus-themed playground. The pager goes off when it’s time to board the ride.


Due to COVID-19 safety measures, the playground has been closed for over a year with physical distancing in the rest of the queue. With physical distancing now being reduced, the playground is able to reopen.


Guests can once again get a pager at the podium inside the tent.


The pagers have a circus ticket design on them.


There are no distancing markers within the playground, not even in the seating area, but it does have a reduced capacity.


Masks are required in the playground, as is still the rule in most indoor areas at Walt Disney World.


There is still physical distancing in the rest of the queue, including the outdoor sections.


This one slide remains closed, but everything else in the playground is open.

  1. Until a FP+ or DDP return, this may be the most feel-good update on reopening I’ve heard so far. Its so nice to see these queues return as the park returns to its more interactive magical self again.
