Seven Dwarfs Mine Train: Video Preview

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is one of my favorite Disney movies. In fact, the Evil Queen from Snow White is my favorite Disney villain. She's so classic. So original.

I was so excited to hear that the New Fantasyland expansion at Magic Kingdom would include a Snow White attraction! After the classic dark ride was closed to make way for a character meet and greet, I've been counting down the days for the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train to open!

As it turns out, I didn't quite time my last trip perfectly enough, and missed the grand opening by about three weeks! However, one day while I was at the park, Walt Disney Imagineering was holding a test for Imagineers only! There were lots of people dressed in shirts and slacks – not my typical touring outfit.

The new attraction provides some spectacular new views of the Magic Kingdom, in particular Cinderella Castle. I had the opportunity to see the new coaster from all sides and capture some slow-motion video on my iPhone 5s. Hopefully, you'll enjoy the detail in those free-swinging mine cars just as much as I did!

I'm looking forward to November when I can finally try out the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. Until then, enjoy!
