The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is a family coaster that’ll take New Fantasyland guests on a journey through the mine where the Seven Dwarfs spend their days digging for gems. It’s scheduled to debut in 2014 at Magic Kingdom Park. Check Jennifer’s original Seven Dwarfs Mine Train story for some art from the attraction.

And we also shared some tips for viewing a Disneyland Resort favorite, “World of Color.” If you haven’t seen it yet, “World of Color” features more than 1,000 water jets that bring Paradise Pier to life in a dazzling spectacle of color and light. Erin offered some of the best ways to enjoy the show in her original post. Let us know your tips too.
