World Resort Celebrates the Official Opening of Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
Disney World Resort is celebrating the completion of New Fantasyland with
the official opening today of Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. Phil Holmes, vice
president of Magic Kingdom Park, welcomed park guests and community leaders
to officially open the new attraction.
As the crowning jewel of New Fantasyland – the largest expansion in the
history of Magic Kingdom – the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is a rocking,
rollicking family-style coaster that immerses guests in the lovable world of
Sleepy, Doc, Grumpy, Bashful, Sneezy, Happy and Dopey. Inspired by the
classic Disney-animated film “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” the
attraction sends riders on a playful musical adventure into the mine “where
a million diamonds shine.”
