The Fantasyland dark ride closes after today, to make way for the new Princess Fairytale Hall meet-and-greet. Snow White and the dwarfs will "relocate" to the new Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, which will open in 2014. Snow White fans can continue to ride the Scary Adventures ride at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, where it remains open.
Please share your thoughts and memories of the Snow White ride, in the comments.
Update: In other Disney World news, Disney's Art of Animation value resort hotel opens today. Would love to hear comments on that one, too.
I'm amazing at the explosion of meet and greets popping up at the disney parks. I guess it makes sense, my niece loves visiting the fairies in Pixie Hollow at Disneyland. But I hate seeing the old standards going to Yesterland.
I guess some might say that Harry Potter land only had a "net gain" of one ride (the other rides were already there)..... but look how much praise that new land got.
I'm excited to see the extra space and real trees amongst the new rides and buildings as well.

One of the things I will remember about this ride was how much it caught a lot of kids and adults by surprise, especially before it was renamed to Snow Whites Scary Adventures or whatever.
When we rode it when I was younger it was almost like a going through a ride through haunted house where the witch kept jumping out at you.... some younger kids did not neccessarily find being stalked by a witch a barrel of fun. My friend's little sister supposedly screamed so loudly during the ride that they could hear her outside the building!
I will always remember riding this ride, but I am really excited about the upcoming Mine Train ride.

Gosh. Such a classic ride. I'm only 19 years but still this was one of my favorite Fantasyland rides up until now! I just love the design of the little cars squeaking along down the track through the doors and past the scenes. For some reason, the first 10 seconds of the ride was one of my favorites, the part before you go into the building! I just thought the little turns every direction were fun. My other favorite part was going through the swamp with the noises and gator etc. I'm truly going to miss this ride. Unfortunately, my last ride was back in February of 2011. We live a good distant from Florida. I'm going to miss it, but I know the new coaster is going to be really neat!
Meeting the princesses is great for the little girls, however, my 5 year old son has zero interest in that. I really think the location would best be served as a ride, either snow white or a new ride. We will be walking right past every time as it stands now.
I went on it on the 28th and I think it is a mistake. They should keep the classic Fantasyland Dark ride. Why not get ride of Peter Pan, the most inefficient ride in all of WDW (I know, but I can wish).
Enough with the Princess stuff!
