This morning, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Walt Disney World Resort’s new family-style coaster inspired by the story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, officially opened at Magic Kingdom. The attraction completes the expansion of New Fantasyland and perfectly complements the land’s exciting attractions, entertainment and offerings such as Journey of the Little Mermaid, Be Our Guest Restaurant, Enchanted Tales with Belle and Storybook Circus.
As part of the grand opening, seven “Littles” and their “Bigs” from Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Florida were the first official guests to board the attraction and experience the unique and thrilling new ride system that allows the cars to sway back and forth. And with brand-new Audio-Animatronics® technology, characters from the classic film truly come to life!
