Heigh-ho! Heigh-ho! Disney’s off to work they go… With the completion of The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at Disney World’s new Fantasyland, Disney works hard to make sure that the official opening for the new ride will be scheduled as said on May 28, 2014.
The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train take guest on a journey into Snow White’s world, it’s a family friendly roller coaster through story and diamonds!
Chris Beatty, the executive director at Walt Disney Imagineering, says “What’s great about working at Imagineering is having some of the Walt Disney DNA instilled in us,” he goes on to show that Walt Disney’s vision has not been lost, “Walt was great with technology and using it in new ways to tell stories, going back and building adventures in brand-new ways”.
Guests will experience a mine train and what it’s like working in the mine with the seven dwarfs.
If you’re going to Walt Disney World any time soon, the ride is located roughly on the spot where 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea once sat, and more recently, Pooh’s Playful Spot.
From the Disney World Parks website, there is an interactive activity while you wait, so don’t forget to experience this too! One of the seven dwarfs, Doc, has set up mining stations and you can do three of the following tasks:
- Jewel Sorting – Follow Doc’s instructions, etched into a nearby plank, and help match jewels by color and shape as they flow down a wooden trough—a.k.a. dozens of touch-screen video displays.
- Jewel Washing – After the jewels are sorted, grab ahold of a musical water spigot and start cleaning. Each spigot plays its own melody—heed Doc’s tips and you may hear a collection of familiar tunes!
- The Vault – Inside the door of the mountain, enter the center of the vault to find a collection of wooden barrels overflowing with glowing stones. Turn each barrel to see the ceiling above you transformed!
Once you’re on board the mine train characters from Snow White will come to life. Have fun! Check out the vid that Disney released:
