Today’s look inside Seven Dwarfs Mine Train takes a peek into an area we haven’t shared much about yet – the attraction’s queue, which features a few interactive opportunities for guests.


According to our friends from Walt Disney Imagineering, first up inside the interactive queue is a jewel sorting station. As the jewels flow by in a 15-foot wooden sluice, guests will be able to drag them into different trays, matching them by color and shape (the gems come in four different sizes and six colors). Something to look for here is that a melody from the film “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” can be created when guests move from spigot to spigot. There are 12 spigots, inspired by the Dwarfs’ woodland friends, that each correspond to the notes of a musical scale.


Later on in the queue, guests will pass the Vault room. According to our friends at Imagineering, this is a nod to a scene in the film “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” in which one of the dwarfs hangs a key just outside the mine’s Vault room door. Do you remember which dwarf this was? Tell us in the “Comments” section below!

  • Dopey!

  • Love the interactive queues! It took 3 visits to WDW for me to realize I was wasting a fast pass on Winnie the Pooh. One of the many things that makes WDW great with toddlers.

    • I agree, Kim. Interactive queues make a line a lot of fun.

  • Dopey, and can’t wait tell it opens.

  • DOPEY!!!

  • Where is the entrance going to be located?

  • Dopey hung the key to the vault.

    • You got it!

  • Disney Imagineers leave no detail behind.
    I love that!
