The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is officially open for business here in New Fantasyland. But it looks like the Seven Dwarfs are looking to add an eighth miner to their ranks – and it could be you!


For the next seven weeks, you can enter the “Be The Eighth Miner” contest for a chance to win a seven-day, seven-night vacation to Walt Disney World Resort to meet the Dwarfs and experience Seven Dwarfs Mine Train for yourself. Each week, a new challenge will be posted on BeThe8thMiner.com that asks you to show specific “Seven Dwarf”-inspired skills in a photo or Vine video. Once your entry is done, you simply follow @WaltDisneyWorld on Twitter, and tweet out your entry along with the hashtag #8thMinerContest.


The first week’s challenge, Grumpy’s Challenge, was just posted and asks you to submit your grumpiest selfie. And look, Grumpy Cat is leading by example!

  • to be the over all winner do you have to enter every week

  • Why do you have to stay in the US to enter? I am the biggest dwarf fan and can’t even enter 🙁

  • Sorry if this is a silly question, but can you submit more than one entry for each week’s theme? I didn’t see anything in the rules specifically prohibiting it, but figured I would ask. Thanks!

  • Hope future competitions are open to your loyal fans from across the pond!

  • Grumpy and Grumpy Cat! How Cool!

  • Thank you for posting, this is exciting!
