Today, the Disney Parks Blog had a live chat discussing the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, which is currently being built as the final part of New Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom. Most of the questions and answers were sort of vague, but we did receive a few new details that I wanted to share with you all.

First off, a brand new song called “Music in Your Soup” will be played in the queue area. The song was originally written for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs but was not used in the movie. The whole area’s music will be instrumental, and it will be as if the Dwarfs, themselves, are playing it.

Speaking of the queue, there will be interactive elements where guests are invited to sort and wash jewels from the mine. Also, guests will be able to enter the Dwarfs’ vault that’s seen in the movie.

Disney’s participants in the webcast did not identify exactly which characters will be included in the attraction, but they did mention that we will see the Seven Dwarfs.

They also shared a great video about how accurate the attraction is compared to the computer modeling they performed prior to construction. In addition, the video proved just how incredible this attraction will be to ride at night.

They mentioned that the attraction is, of course, slated to offer FastPass+, and that the height requirement will be 38 inches.

And the opening date for the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is….some time this spring…still wouldn’t answer that question. Darn.

  • My favorite part of the video was the trash bags in the ride through. Do they have a lot of garbage in there, or are they covering the dwarfs? Lol ;) Seriously though, it looks like an awesome ride. Those nighttime views are amazing. Looks like a good place to catch some of Wishes while riding. :)

  • Live chat event without answering the 1 question on everybody’s mind? Fail.

  • Do you know if the mine train will be an option when I go to do my fast pass + selections this Friday, for April 28th trip? If not, should I keep checking back to see if it is added as an option sometime in the future? Thanks!

  • Incredible. am going to add a night time ride onto my touring plans. Think it would be incredible during the fireworks :)

  • I was completely puzzled – We are here in the park and decided to use our unplanned day for Magic Kingdom (it was going to be just an Epcot trip but with the plan we did the whole thing (with doubles on favorites) easily in 2 days. Seven Dwarfs appears in the touring plans but I couldn’t get a fastpass for it, then realized I couldn’t even read about it on the official site…so it isn’t opened yet. I rely on TouringPlans for up-to-the minute info it didn’t occur to me that it would default to an attraction that wasn’t available yet.
