It has been a long wait, but The new Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is slowly approaching in new Fantasyland.
Set to open in the spring of 2014, the coaster will take guests on a rollicking, musical ride into the mine “where a million diamonds shine”. Inspired by the 1937 Disney animated film classic “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” the fun starts as guests cross a stone bridge and walk through a beautiful forest with the Dwarfs’ cottage in the distance, leading to the entrance to the attraction — and immersion into the endearing story of the radiant and kindhearted Snow White and her forest friends led by the lovable Dwarfs. After passing through an interactive pre-show area with fun activities themed to mining, guests will proceed to the mine train. Just like the iconic movie, surprises are in store! The family-style coaster will feature first-of-its-kind ride vehicles mounted in cradle-like pivots that allow the vehicles to swing back and forth during the ride. Adding to the fun, the journey will be accompanied by beloved music from the film classic and there’s a cast of animated figures of Snow White, the Seven Dwarfs and playful forest critters.
New Fantasyland is a wonderful addition to the Magic Kingdom and to be there really feels like you have been immersed into the fairytale worlds of Dumbo, Belle, Arial and yes Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The new mine ride will give the one final touch to this amazing expansion….some thrill to add to the excitement. Sleepy will surly be awake for this one!
