Disney offers another tease for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train

Published: April 8, 2014 at 7:59 AM

Disney keeps teasing its upcoming Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom. Here's the latest:

But when will we get to ride it? We've heard that cast member previews have been scheduled, and there's a media event slated for the end of this month. So if past practice at Disney Parks is any guide, we should start seeing the roller coaster available on a soft-open sometime in the next couple of weeks.

So check it out if you're in the Magic Kingdom this month. If by any chance you do get on the ride, please email us at right away so we can spread the word! You can submit photos of the ride via our photo submission link (the link is specifically for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train). And you always can email photos and video (or YouTube links) to so we can share them with the entire Theme Park Insider community. Thanks, and good luck, WDW visitors!

I love the snow capped mountains in the background! Glad to know they're replacing the All-Star resorts with a huuuuuuuuuge fake mountain range.

Oh wait.

I'm excited for this attraction, but I'm not sure if that's because it's a roller coaster or because we've been waiting for it to open seemingly forever. I was looking at some pictures from October 2010, and there were construction walls up around the area and footers being poured for the project back then. That's 3.5 years for what appears to be a pretty small roller coaster. Entire theme parks have been built in less time than it's taken to finish New Fantasyland.

To this new CG footage, I say "Zzzzzzzz." Wake me up when it's actually open.

I agree, what does this video actually have to offer? No actual ride footage or inside scoop to the ride. Questionable move by Disney...

I'm leaving in 3 weeks. I'm hoping for a soft opening.

This really could have been built in 6 months. Disney World is so slow on their construction. They really should have started this first, since it is the first thing you see in the new Fanasty Land and saved the Dumbo area for last....

I'm waiting {a long time} for Disney to become the company it
once was. Pirates of the Caribbean, the Haunted Mansion, the Jungle Cruise, Indiana Jones Adventure, Horizons at Epcot....
that was yesterday's Disney.
Today, it's all meet and greets, magic bracelets, and parades.
3.5 years to build the Seven Dwarfs coaster, and there's not
even much of a show building inside.
A lackluster, disappointing Little Mermaid ride.

Universal is watching all this, and is now taking the lead.
