Dumbo, one of Disneyland’s most iconic rides in history has shut down temporarily, but don’t panic. It will be back up and flying again soon. Disney is doing a little work on the ride’s queue that will make life a bit better for those who stand in line for an hour at a time.
“The Dumbo elephants have packed their trunks for now,” park spokeswoman Suzi Brown joked, describing the rehabilitation efforts that started Jan. 8, which will include moving the lines to the back of the ride and installing – are you ready for this – shade canopies that have been desperately needed for decades.
The lines to board the attraction are being relocated to a lesser used area behind the main walkway, which will “help us improve the flow around that area,” said Jim Slagle, director of facilities for Disneyland. Meanwhile, wooden barriers cover the work underway. January is a typical refurbishment season when the parks close rides for repairs and updates.
The elephants and ride arms that lift them into the air will get a fresh coat of paint, and the entire experience will be spruced up. It’s slated to reopen in the spring.
