With the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train opening later this spring, this week we thought we’d review some of the best video content we’ve shared so far around this attraction.

Just to review, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train was Inspired by the 1937 Disney animated film “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” – but unlike Magic Kingdom Park’s original Snow White’s Scary Adventures attraction, this new experience tells the tale from the dwarfs’ perspective. Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is a family coaster with a ‘38-inch height requirement, and will be the final attraction to debut in New Fantasyland as a part of the park’s multi-year New Fantasyland expansion.

Over the past few months, we’ve released several videos that offer looks inside the making of the attraction. Check out some of our favorites below.

  1. Check out a ride-through video of the attraction, which is shown side-by-side with an early CGI rendering that Imagineers used to help design the attraction’s track.

  2. Take a peek inside the attraction for a first look at the Dwarfs and the technology used to bring them to life.

  3. Yellow Shoes Creative Group shared this CGI video of Seven Dwarfs Mine Train.

  4. Take a look behind the scenes to see how Walt Disney Imagineering created ride vehicles for the attraction.

  5. Head onto the construction site with Imagineers Dave Minichiello and Pam Rawlins to learn more about how Mine Train was constructed.

  • We’re coming down to Disney World on May 10. Sure hope the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is open by then. :-)

  • Opening date. =)

    Pleeaaseee….

  • Yes we do need a opening date! Me and my other half are staying in Disney from 4th-25th May. Coming from UK. Had family really looking forwards to riding seven dwarfs mine train over Christmas period and My sister stayed over in February. At least 1 of the 3 groups of us should get to ride seven dwarfs mine train. Really looking forwards to it and not only that we have spent a lot of money to come over to have a disappointment. It will be my 4th time in Disney and my partners 1st time. so please please please don’t let me down. 12 sleeps lol. :)

  • I will be there June 14th! I am so excited!

  • Have our fingers and toes crossed that it will be before we arrive at the World in 3 weeks……although we have a fall back plan for 26 weeks from now…..

  • So if this is the story from the Dwarfs perspectives, will we see Snow White or the Wicked Queen?

  • I happen to LOVE the teasers; I always look for them here and, well basically any where online. We won’t be able to visit the Kingdom until 2015, so I’ll take what I can get!!

  • Our family with be there at the end of May and I was hoping the Mine Train would be open!! We are so excited! Disney, you make us smile! Thank you once again for the anticipation.

  • OPENING DATE! OPENING DATE!

  • The amount of coverage on this site for this attraction would be overkill for news covering the opening of a fifth park at WDW.

  • I’m so sad that this probably won’t be open or have any soft openings while I’m in Florida, as my trip ends ON april 30th :( I tried to push back the family trip dates so we would catch this ride when it opened. I want to cry a little

  • OP-EN-ING DATE! OP-EN-ING DATE! OP-EN-ING DATE!

    Seriously, enough with the teasers. We are all excited, now just tell us what we want to know, please.

  • OP-EN-ING DATE! OP-EN-ING DATE! OP-EN-ING DATE!

  • OP-EN-ING DATE! OP-EN-ING DATE! OP-EN-ING DATE!

    I’m trying to start a chant :)

  • Jennifer, Did you forget I am still comming for my Birthday on May 2, and need my fastpass for Mine Train?

  • Ditto! We will be there May 7th and the not knowing is driving me crazy! Give us SOMETHING! Please :)!

  • I am desperate for an opening date!! Talk about anxiety!! :)

  • I’m on the edge of my seat waiting for the April 30th so I can see this in person! Hoping for at least a DVC preview or soft openings while I am there in 2 weeks! :)

  • you know people are getting frustrated with you even thought we all know you’re sweet as a peach. We JUST WANT the opening date of this ride so we can plan our trips “later this spring”.

    • Well, thank you! I’m really looking forward to the day when we get to announce it!!

  • I’m ready to record my own mine train video :)

    • :)
