February 24th, 2014 4:25 PM by Brent Ferry

Early today Imagineer Dave Minichielle Creative Director for the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train attraction at Magic Kingdom shared more information about the all new ride during a live chat on the Disney Parks Blog, and with it the first onboard ride-through video which pairs an actual test run versus the initial CGI concept.


While a specific Grand Opening date still was not announced, among the details revealed during the chat was the statement "We're on schedule for spring", confirmation that the attraction will be included in FastPass+, and news of a friendly height restriction of just 38".

When asked to compare the ride to other coasters at Disney, Minichiello replied "It's a family coaster and it's a unique experience unlike anything else in our parks...It gives the guests a new sensation they've never had before."  He later adds "It has proven to be pretty amazing and a very smooth attraction.  It's a completely new experience - not only having the sensation of pivoting back and forth and it varies throughout the attraction.  You feel differences in the various terrain around the mountain."

Enjoy the sneak peak!
It’s a family coaster and it’s a unique experience unlike anything else in our parks. This attraction is more innovative in its ride system and vehicle. It is for the entire family. It gives the guests a new sensation they’ve never had before. And we felt that uniqueness was the best way to tell our story.
