Seven Dwarfs Mine Train — A First Look At Some Of The Animatronics

It shouldn’t be much longer now until the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train in The Magic King­dom at Walt Disney Wold opens and completes the New Fanta­sy­land expan­sion. They haven’t offi­cially announced a date, but some time in May is what every­one seems to be expect­ing.

We’ve see plenty of shots of the outside and some concept art of the inside, but this video released by Disney shows us a bit more about the dark ride portion of this roller­coaster.

Disney has exper­i­mented with this sort of anima­tron­ics before, but there aren’t many exam­ples of it in The Magic King­dom. As well as the tradi­tional anima­tronic elements, they’re able to animate the char­ac­ters expres­sions much more than was previ­ously possi­ble. The results are impres­sive.
