Enchanting New Magic Coming to Snow White’s Scary Adventures at Disneyland Park

We’re always looking for new and innovative ways to enhance our storytelling at the Disneyland Resort. I’m delighted to share that we have exciting changes coming to Snow White’s Scary Adventures in Disneyland park next year.

This classic Fantasyland attraction, Disneyland park’s only ride-through princess attraction, will be updated with new magic inside and out in 2020. Walt Disney Imagineering is reimagining how the classic tale of Snow White lives happily ever after, and guests will be invited to follow along with her story.

In addition to experiencing familiar elements of the attraction you know and love, you’ll discover enhanced story details and all-new scenes. For example, a new vignette will show Snow White in a beautiful forest setting waking up from her deep sleep. Also, the attraction will conclude when Snow White is reunited with her animal friends and a shimmering castle is seen in the distance.

Imagineers are implementing state-of-the-art audio and visual technology throughout the attraction, including new music, LED black lighting, laser projections and a new animation system. The exterior of the attraction will be completely refreshed with new, fairy tale-inspired details to complement the nearby charming Sleeping Beauty Castle.

This isn’t the first time the attraction has undergone a significant refurbishment. In 1983, as a whole new version of Fantasyland was unveiled, Snow White’s Adventures reopened with new technology and a brand-new facade, along with the new name. In 2020, this opening day attraction will celebrate 65 years at Disneyland!

We’ll continue to share details with you here on the Disney Parks Blog. In the meantime, enjoy Snow White’s Scary Adventures through Jan. 6, 2020.


  • I’m so happy my favorite princess is getting some love and referbs on her attraction. I’m looking forward to seeing what new things the imagineers will come up with.

  • I’m really excited to see the update. Sadly I think it will be closed when we go next year. Hopefully you will have an opening date soon.

  • Hopefully they’ll use some of the techniques they used in Shanghai. If you’ve been to the castle there, it is pretty cool and uses projections and animation throughout. It is a walking tour rather than a ride though so it feels a little more immersive.

  • I adore Snow White, I have saved these two gorgeous images for screensavers they are so beautiful! We love the Mine Train Ride but there is always room for another Snow White ride at WDW!
    After all, she is the ORIGINAL and FIRST Walt Disney Princess!
    <3 <3 <3 Snow White and Walt Disney!

  • So happy to hear that this ride is getting some love from the Imagineers! Snow White is such an important movie in Disney history it should continue to be honored with a ride in Disneyland. I never underestimate the Imagineers and I’m sure that they will do a great job! Can’t wait to see what they’ve come up with.

  • Always been a bigger fan of “plusing” the rides over removing them. Looking forward to it!

  • Sounds great. 😄

  • Hope they’ll just lengthen the ride for the new scenes in place of the “and they lived happily ever after” murals and still leave all the existing scenes in tact.
