Seven Dwarfs Mine Ride Opening Day

Published: May 5, 2014 at 9:59 PM

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.
