Cars Land at Disney California Adventure Park

Imagineers Add a Piece of Snow White’s Scary Adventures to Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at Magic Kingdom Park

Who’s ready for a Seven Dwarfs Mine Train update?

Our friends at Walt Disney Imagineering recently reached another milestone in the construction of the attraction with the overnight addition of a few scenic elements guests will encounter at the top of the mine train’s first lift. When mine cars pull out of the load area, they’ll travel up the track to the top of the mountain, where a jib crane sits topped by two ominous vultures, the latter of which originally appeared in the park’s original Snow White’s Scary Adventures attraction. This is the last stop before the mine train’s cars plunge into a mine shaft.

Check out the photos of the recent overnight install below.

So glad to see the continued respect for the history of the park. Little things like this – and even the more symbolic things, like the 20k water in Ariel’s Lagoon – make me respect WDI even more…if that’s possible :) .

I agree Matthew!

Snow White’s Scary Adventures was one of my favorite classic Fantasyland attractions – I’m so glad you have added this tribute to the anticipated Mine Train! :)

Best regards,

Do you know yet when in 2014 that the attraction will open? I’m so excited to see it completed!

Really hoping this will be open when I visit in June 2014!

I also really enjoy Disney’s homages to past attractions.

This is adorable! I saw them testing the mine carts last night which means the track is complete! I’m so glad it’s one step closer to opening!
