Heigh-ho, heigh-ho it’s off to ride Seven Dwarfs Mine Train that Walt Disney Imagineers go. Yes, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train has moved into the next phase of testing and it brings you one step closer to your eventual whistling good time in the mines. In fact as you can hear in the video we captured of the attraction’s testing, the signature song, “Heigh Ho,” can be heard bellowing out from the main mine shaft right before the riders drop into the New Fantasyland fun on the west side of the attraction which has become quite the spot to gather and take in the sights of an attraction that grows more impressive by the day.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen the vehicles testing but once again we are taken aback by their wonderful beauty.
As Imagineers partake in the joys of the attraction, we couldn’t help but notice a few wonderful details that have come into view. First are the ride vehicles themselves, with individual lap bars that seem to be as unobtrusive as safety bars can be. We also noticed the Imagineers holding onto a bar in front of each of their seats, not unlike what you’d encounter on Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen the vehicles testing but once again we are taken aback by their wonderful beauty and just how well they help to tell the story of the attraction they are a part of.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs deserved a proper home in the Magic Kingdom. It is Walt Disney World after all.
The next sight to really draw our eye is the Seven Dwarfs’ Cottage that although we got our best look yet with construction walls now having receded, still remains quite hidden amongst the Fantasyland Forest canopy. It’s been an all too long of a road to see this Fantasyland ride become a reality, though we’ve enjoyed bringing you every twist and turn from the unveiling of the concept art to where we stand today. If the faces of the Imagineers all smiling as they ride the attraction say anything at all, it is that the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is well worth that wait. Because Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs deserved a proper home in the Magic Kingdom. It is Walt Disney World after all.
