Look who just stopped by New Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom Park to check on the progress of the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train attraction – it’s Dopey!
The attraction, which is still under construction, tells the story of “Seven Dwarfs Mine Train” from the perspectives of the Dwarfs. Positioned just behind Dopey in this photo, you can catch a glimpse of the “big drop” in the attraction, which takes place just after guests journey through the Dwarfs’ mine.
Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is scheduled to open later this spring (exact date is still yet-to-be-announced). In the meantime, what aspect of this attraction are you most excited to see for yourself? The mine? The view from the top? Tell us in the “Comments” section below!

Today our celebration of the “it’s a small world” attraction continues with a new downloadable wallpaper from Disney artist Jason “Tiki” Tackett. The graphic was inspired by the original “it’s a small world” attraction at Disneyland park. The sign that’s featured in the middle was added during the attraction’s 25th anniversary celebration.
If you’re looking for a quiet, tranquil place to unwind, check out the torch-lit terrace at Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar at the Disneyland Hotel. However, if you want to party like the tiki gods, I dare you to go inside! Sam, head salesman of the jungle, has a space at the bar for even the most adventurous tourist. Exotic elixirs like the Uh Oa!, named after the tiki goddess of disaster, Shrunken Zombie Head and HippopotoMai-Tai are served up in style by bold and courageous bartenders. The video below gives a glimpse of how water, fire and ice (sometimes blended) all come together to make up one-of-a-kind cocktails behind the doors of Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar.
Have you been to see Sam? If so what’s your preferred potion?
I can now say I have the #1 highlight of my Disney career: interviewing Disney Legend Richard Sherman. What an amazing day! I met him at the Walt Disney Archives in Burbank, Calif., where he sat at Walt Disney’s piano and played “it’s a small world,” the iconic song he wrote and composed with his late brother, Robert. He’s very proud of the song’s meaning and very serious about its impact on the world. He talks more about it in the video below. As you would imagine, he was a pure delight. He was kind and funny, and after the interview he played more of his classics for the room. I hope this video captures that unforgettable day. Enjoy!
