You may have heard that Seven Dwarfs Mine Train will grand open on May 28 – and in honor of this milestone, the Seven Dwarfs are looking to add another Disney character to their mining team.



Starting today, each of the Seven Dwarfs will sponsor a Disney animated character (or parks-inspired character) in the Miners Wanted Challenge on Facebook. You can visit the Walt Disney World Facebook page to vote on which character represents each Dwarf in future challenges. The characters (which include Mickey Mouse, Elsa, Maleficent and Figment) will then compete in challenges based on different qualities miners need. The more you vote throughout the month of May, the more gems a character will acquire. The more gems a character has, the further he or she will advance in the game.

The fun begins Tuesday on the Walt Disney World Facebook page. You can also follow along on Twitter with the hashtag #MinersWanted.


  • I Vote to be with and or for Team Happy!!!

  • I love the chibi look the dwarves were drawn in! I’d love it if you had plush toys of the dwarves designed that way.

  • There is only a post to join Team Bashful. I want to join Team DOPEY!!!! Can someone put instructions so we can vote fairly?

  • It just says, “Here’s our first matchup for #MinersWanted! Who should join Team Bashful?”
    No link to vote, no instructions, etc. Everyone is posting comments, but there’s not indication that’s what’ll be counted. A little help please!
