This week, we’re taking a nighttime look at one of the brightest attractions in New Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom ParkDumbo the Flying Elephant.


This image, shot by Tom Bricker, shows the attraction, its queue and courtyard, just after dusk.

Which is your favorite attraction to experience at night? Tell us in the “Comments” section below.


  • Big Thunder Mountain during Wishes. Flying around while seeing the fireworks is a completely different experience. Also there is usually no line so you can ride it multiple times during the 20 minutes. I love Wishes and watch it every year when I go, but we will ride Big Thunder Mountain during Wishes on a different night.

    • I totally agree! That attraction offers a great view.

  • Hard to pick just one, but for now I’ll say Astro Orbitor in WDW MK.

    The fact that it’s in (what I consider 😉 ) it’s proper place high above Tomorrowland lets you see a good deal of the parks and nearby resorts’ lighting features at night.

  • Jungle Cruise. 🙂 It’s a completely different experience, and kind of eerie!

  • The Tower of Terror! The hotel is tailor-made for the night. And with its towering vantage point, it offers a great view of DHS at night!

    • That is a blast to ride at night. 🙂
