    We used to go LEFT around the castle to quickly get to Dumbo and avoid crowds. Do you all still recommend going that way with it in the new fanasyland or is there a better route? Get Panel! Thanks!

    Hello Jennifer!

    We just got back from a trip to Walt Disney World and loved seeing the new Storybook Circus area where the Dumbo the Flying Elephant attraction now resides.

    We found it's actually easier now to get to Dumbo without having to worry about the Fantasyland crowds.  The Storybook Circus area with Dumbo is tucked off to the right-hand side of Fantasyland.  The easiest way to get there is to cut through Tomorrowland and bear right at the Mad Tea Party.  Follow the construction walls down and you'll find Dumbo and The Barnstormer waiting for you! 

    Be sure to pay close attention to the ground in Storybook Circus.  You'll find lots of evidence of the circus animals being in town, and maybe even some of Dumbo's favorite snack laying around.

    Have a magical day!
