Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, which is described as a playful and musical family-style coaster. The ride that take guests through the timeless story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, has officially opened at Magic Kingdom just in time for the summer crowds at Disney World.
Joined by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Florida and Orlando Magic players Victor Oladipo and Tobias Harris, Magic Kingdom vice president Phil Holmes welcomed park guests as the first riders to experience the newest attraction at Walt Disney World Resort.
Actually if you were there for the 24 hour event you know that many people got to ride it before opening day.
This family style coaster now completes the New Fantasyland, which is the largest expansion in the history of Magic Kingdom. The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is a rocking, rollicking coaster that immerses guests in the lovable world of Sleepy, Doc, Grumpy, Bashful, Sneezy, Happy and Dopey. Inspired by the classic Disney animated film classic “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” the attraction sends riders on a playful musical adventure into the mine “where a million diamonds shine.”
Featuring an innovative, first-of-its-kind ride system, guests boarding the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train pivot back and forth during twists, turns, hills and drops. Guests are transported through magical mountain scenery and a glowing mine with scenes of the Dwarfs and frolicking forest creatures.
Music from the film classic accompanies the journey. Seven Dwarfs Mine Train features spectacular Audio-Animatronics – with cars slowing down so guests can spot favorite characters making an appearance in different scenes.
At ride’s end, the cottage of the Dwarfs, replicated from the film to exacting detail by Walt Disney Imagineers, comes into view with a dancing Snow White visible through a window.
I was told the Evil Queen/Old lady at the end of the ride trying to get into the cottage, was the same one used in the old Snow White ride.
So you can not get your Fastpasses for the Mine Train ride!
Wishing you Faith, Trust, and Pixie Dust
