Since the announcement of the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train attraction, we have repeatedly mentioned just how big of a visual and kinetic impact this new roller coaster based attraction would have on Fantasyland. But more and more we don’t need to talk about it, we just need to show you. And so in this update you’ll be privy to much the same view you will have in a few months once the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train attraction is complete and you’ll be able to imagine now just how it might look and feel to see a mine train careening down the main mine shaft and into the principal drop of the ride. Simply put, it is stunning and provides a dramatic vista akin to that of Expedition Everest in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, albeit in a much smaller and much more subtle form factor. But unlike Expedition Everest which is tucked away in the farthest reaches of its host Disney Park, the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train sits at the heart of New Fantasyland and that alone makes its aesthetics all the more important.
Of course there is more. We also journey to the soon to be open Disney Vacation Club (DVC) sales location that is adjacent to the recently opened snack food cart near Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid. There you’ll find that construction is continuing with new thematic elements now installed as the shop readies for its debut. Take note of the “giant squid” that has just made it onto the scene and references the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea that was in its day the landmark attraction that anchored this same piece of real estate in Fantasyland. There is a ton to see in part two of this update series and we are just getting started so make sure to stay tuned for part three arriving soon.
