“Project

Our friends at Walt Disney Imagineering just shared a photo of a very special delivery they received here the Walt Disney World Resort earlier this week. We’re told it’s a key piece of an attraction that’s coming to New Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom Park.

Any idea as to what it might be? Submit your guesses in the “Comments” section below. Be sure to check back soon to see if your guess was correct!

“Project

If you responded with a “Seven Dwarfs Mine Train” answer, you are correct! The very first mine train car was delivered at Walt Disney World this week. The car, which can be seen above, will now be taken to a backstage area where it will receive a themed paint job.

It might well be the locomotive of the train for the upcoming Seven Dwarfs Mine Train!

Definitely the mine cart

Casey on June 28th, 2013 at 10:25 am

I’m with the others. I think it’s one of the mine cars!
Or maybe a dwarf?

Steven on June 28th, 2013 at 10:29 am

My first thought was (as mentioned many times above) the mine ride vehicle… can’t wait to ride!

Bracelets for the ticket and fast pass system. The people who have their hands up all have a bracelet on.

23

Sean from GA on June 28th, 2013 at 12:02 pm

I’m going with a mine car as well.

It has to be a a mine car.

25

Mine cart almost seems to obvious, so that being said I am going to go with the Sign for the new dwarf mine ride

26

Michelle on June 28th, 2013 at 1:14 pm

I am with everyone else, mine cart or maybe the cute little dwarfs

27

Stephen on June 28th, 2013 at 1:23 pm

It’s the Seven Dwarfs’ Cottage that was seen in the concept art.

An animatronic Dopey showing everyone how to buckle up before the mine train ride begins!

36

Sara from MO on June 28th, 2013 at 10:57 pm

Everyone else said a mine car so I’ll have to guess something else. The mirror? Jewels? A poisoned apple? Dopey?

37

Lori on June 29th, 2013 at 7:26 am

The last piece of track for the mine coaster!!

38

Christopher on June 29th, 2013 at 9:17 am

Gotta be a mining car from the new “Snow White” attraction… BECAUSE it’s the ONLY attraction in New Fantasyland that IS NOT complete. :-)

39

Sandra on June 29th, 2013 at 1:54 pm

Might be mine car with all the beautiful jewels. Can not wait to see :)

40

john on June 29th, 2013 at 4:12 pm

under that blue tarp is a brand new start of the art swinging mine cart for the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, A first for Disney Parks and I can’t wait to see it in action.

41

Mike on June 29th, 2013 at 5:13 pm

It’s not a Mine Car. It’s the people that made the ride possible. without them it wouldn’t exist at all. Thank you Imagineers. :D

42

Philip on June 29th, 2013 at 11:00 pm

When are you going to reveal the answer, Jennifer?

 

Jennifer Fickley-Baker on July 1st, 2013 at 9:10 am

Right…NOW!

43

David from TX on July 1st, 2013 at 11:59 am

Woo hoo!!! Can’t wait to ride this when we head back to WDW in Dec ’15. We were there on grand opening day of the Fantasyland expansion this past December and it was awesome!

 

Jennifer Fickley-Baker on July 1st, 2013 at 12:30 pm

That’s great to hear. This looks like it’s going to be a fun one!

44

Leigh on July 1st, 2013 at 5:00 pm

Definitely a Mine Car. Heigh Ho!

45

Mitchell from IL on July 1st, 2013 at 10:44 pm

Wish it were going to be completed when we head back down in October. Oh well, I guess that we’ll just have to go back again! 8(:

Frank from ME on August 12th, 2013 at 12:44 pm

Are there any updates on when it might open? Hopefully by April 2014 when we go.
