WATCH: Seven Dwarves Mine Ride

24 Feb

The final piece of the New Fantasyland puzzle appears to be in place.

Disney parks released this new on-ride video of the Snow White and Seven Dwarves mine ride, which has been in construction since late 2012.

What viewers might not be able to fully appreciate from the video about this attraction is how completely silent it is. No clanking track, no gears churning. It’s as silent as a sleeping bat in a diamond cavern.

The completion date is “officially” May 2014. It was originally rumored to be completed before Christmas 2013; however, construction didn’t make that (unofficial) deadline.

Imagineers announced the attraction during 2011’s D23 Expo, almost as an afterthought to the existing Fantasyland expansion plans.

Personally, I’m ready for this thing to be finished. It will (hopefully) alleviate some Guest congestion on the Mountains – Space, Big Thunder, and Splash – by giving Guests another “thrill” attraction.

Plus, the previous Snow White attraction was absolutely terrifying… Princess Fairytale Hall now stands in its former place.
