Marco from RM on February 24th, 2014 at 2:07 am

Please advise on when it will be open so that we can book our vacation!!! At least having an estimate date could be interesting.

Thanks a lot


Michael on February 24th, 2014 at 9:24 am

Karyn on February 24th, 2014 at 9:33 am

We have a window on March 11 to book FastPass +. Will we be able to book then? Karyn


Caitlin on February 24th, 2014 at 9:48 am

What are some special hidden mickeys or little details that we should look for on the ride?


Elizabeth from FL on February 24th, 2014 at 10:04 am

I am really excited about this ride! I am just wondering how it will compare speed and drop wise to other coasters such as Space Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain. Also will the queue be interactive like Space Mountain and Winnie the Pooh? Thank you! I can’t wait!


Cassandra on February 24th, 2014 at 10:10 am

What is the height restriction w/this ride. I have a 5 yrs. old and she would be so sad if she cannot ride it. thanks!


Joseph on February 24th, 2014 at 10:38 am

Ive seen it posted as 38″, but that may not be official yet…


brett from CA on February 24th, 2014 at 11:51 am

will it have the original songs in the ride and how many songs will it be in the ride ?


marvin on February 24th, 2014 at 12:01 pm

is there any soft openings going to happen before the April 30th-may 2 media day.


christine from NY on February 24th, 2014 at 12:03 pm

What will the height requirements be and when will it be available for fast pass plus?


Jessica on February 24th, 2014 at 12:27 pm

We are going on our first visit 6-5 – 6-9. Will The Seven Dwarfs ride be available to ride & will we be able to use our Fast-Pass for it?


Daniel from South Yorkshire on February 24th, 2014 at 1:12 pm

How will seven dwarfs compare to other disney attractions in terms of intensity? For example is it more like big thunder mountain or less/more intense?


Tyler on February 24th, 2014 at 1:17 pm

4 Questions.

1) What will be the ride-time duration?
2) How many drops?
3) What is the Max speed?
4) How many dark-ride show scenes?



Alli on February 24th, 2014 at 2:01 pm

What was the inspiration for the ride vehicles?

Why did you feel this was the right thrill ride for New Fantasyland?

What kind of nods to the past can we look for in the Mine Train?

Who was head of the painting/design/executional team? I adore all the rock work and landscape you guys do, and would love to know who created this masterpiece.


Steven on February 24th, 2014 at 2:12 pm

What is the duration of the ride?


Michael on February 24th, 2014 at 2:17 pm

top question…. when does it open


Robert on February 24th, 2014 at 2:17 pm

Is there going to be annual pass holder soft openings? When is the Seven Dwarf mine Train Ride opening? When is fastpass+ going to be available for this ride?


Tara on February 24th, 2014 at 2:26 pm

I’ve seen 40″. I would also love to the know the height restriction, date of opening, and fast pass+ info! We can’t wait!!


Lindsey on February 24th, 2014 at 2:30 pm

What was the inspiration for the ride?


Elizabeth from FL on February 24th, 2014 at 2:31 pm

What is the queue line going to be like? Will it be interactive like some lines have been created? What can we expect as far as speed and intensity or will it be very calm like the goofy coaster?


Linsey on February 24th, 2014 at 2:38 pm

Will there be a store at the ride with new merchandise?? Also will there be character meets with any dwarfs by the ride? When does it open please?!


Penelope on February 24th, 2014 at 2:40 pm

Chat? What chat? Doesn’t seem to be anything going on.


Tyler on February 24th, 2014 at 6:44 pm

So, I guess the chat didn’t happen?!


Carla on February 24th, 2014 at 6:46 pm

Hoping this ride will be open the week of March 23rd as that is when our family will be there. Do you know if this ride will have the baby swap, or does that even exist anymore? We have 4 adults and one 8 month old boy. I can’t wait because Disney always goes the extra mile for their rides. Also, when you enter the park, how far is it from the entrance?


Gordon on May 27th, 2014 at 11:09 am

Going to WDW as a day trip 5/28, fast pass online already sold out, will there be any stsandbys at all? and will there be a singles line like the aerosmith coaster and Test Track?
