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.
