    I have seen that some of the rides will be closed for refurbishment during my stay 2/25-3/2. Can you tell me if the Dumbo ride or the Magic Carpet Ride will be open during our stay? This is our first trip with our three year old hoping for at least one.

    Hi, Alicia!

    You magical Walt Disney World vacation is just around the corner!  You must be getting so excited!

    I checked for the refurbishment schedule.  Please note that all closings are subject to change at any time, so check your Times Guide when you enter any theme park for the latest updates.

    Here is what the schedule posted as closed:

    Dumbo the Flying Elephant:  Closed January 9 - February 17

    Big Thunder Mountain: January 9 - May 27

    Magic Carpets of Aladdin:  March 1 - March 10

    It looks like you might just squeeze in BOTH of your attractions!  But, given that openings/closings can vary by days, even weeks, I really cannot guarantee what will be going on.  Hopefully you will get the chance to experience these great "flying" attractions.  If they are closed, make sure to enjoy so many other great magical attractions:  Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Peter Pan, it's a small world, and the Mad Tea Party to name just a few!

    Wishing your little Mouseketeer a wonderful first vacation to Walt Disney World!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
