Seven Dwarfs Mine Ride Opening Day

Submitted by Brandon Townsend

Hello. I will be at WDW on the 28th of May when the 7DMR opens. And I have some questions.
Should I attempt to attend this event? Or should I avoid it because of the crowds? Is the opening of a ride worth the hassle?
I am travelling with 3 other adults, so there will be no kids clamouring to ride it. Anyways, I'm hoping we will be able to ride it a few days before for a soft opening. But maybe there is something special about a ride opening? My daughter and I are amateur photographers and I wonder if this will present an opportunity for some good pics. Thanks for any advice.

Please take a moment to share this post, and encourage others to reply!

Personally I'd say to hold off unless there will be a special ceremony or presentation of some sort. I was able to somehow snag a FastPass+ booking for the next Friday, June 6. Again, I'm not really sure as to what is going down on the 28th so I can't really help.

Thanks for the response. I will be doing the Keys to the Kingdom tour the day it opens, so I'm hoping we can at least get to ride it then.

Oh wow man, I've always wanted to do that! Have fun and tell me how it is!
