Hi Ho! Hi Ho! It’s off to work we go as Disney Imagineering releases a sneaky peak inside the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train set to open in Magic Kingdom this month.
Fans of all ages will delight at the video released on YouTube this week which reveals an exciting glimpse of the Seven Dwarfs inside the Disney Magic Kingdom ride. Expect to see plenty of bright lights and exciting action during the 30-second clip as the audio animatronic dwarfs whistle while they work – with very expressive faces.
Unlike traditional Disney animatronics the characters on this family coaster in Florida feature unique projected faces creating an exceptional mechanical and screen effect. Prepare to be amazed at this first look at the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train animatronics, said to be Walt Disney World’s most advanced ever.
According to the official Disney Parks Blog, the dwarf’s movements and faces are some of the most radical ever created by Disney Imagineering and are the most impressive ever seen in an attraction of this kind. Disney has been teasing details of the ride for some months with specially released videos showcasing the work that has gone into the trains and track promised to be jam-packed with exciting twists, turns, drops and loops.
The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is expected to open in the spring although the exact date is yet to be confirmed. If this ride follows in the footsteps of the rest of New Fantasyland guests could start boarding as part of a special soft opening in just a matter of weeks. When it opens the ride will wrap up the three year expansion of Fantasyland, the greatest expansion in Magic Kingdom’s history.
