About the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
Embark for family-friendly thrills as you enjoy the twistiest, turniest, rollickingest ride in New Fantasyland.
Showcasing a first-of-its-kind coaster system, the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train cruises along through a fabulous mine—glittering with diamonds, emeralds, and other precious gems—swinging and swaying Guests up large lifts, across sharp banks and around exhilarating turns.
Come feel a rush of enchantment and excitement too as you take off on this all-new addition to Magic Kingdom park!
Plus, be on the lookout for several favorite characters from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs—they’re all here, recreated in vivid detail using innovative technology that brings their 3-dimensional expressions to life.
Feel the wind in your face when your cart teeters over the crest, traveling down and around the mountain and deep into the mine shaft. Soon, the dark begins to sparkle as you happen upon the Seven Dwarfs hard at work—whistling and singing while collecting diamonds, rubies, and other shining jewels.
All your Dwarf friends are accounted for—Sleepy, Happy, Grumpy, Dopey, Sneezy, Bashful and Doc—as you careen through the cavern and climb toward an opening to the outside world. At the top, soak up an inspiring view of New Fantasyland before arriving back to the foot of the mountain.
After passing behind a waterfall, prepare for a party as you peek inside a rustic cottage where Snow White and her Dwarf friends are dancing in celebration, just as this rocking ride comes to an end! – Walt Disney World
