The Latest Photos of Final Walls Down at Seven Dwarfs Mine Train Ride
We are so excited here today to see the final walls coming down at the Seven Dwarfs Mine Ride in Fantasyland. We can see the entrance signs with a sign tacked up there saying “Mine Open Soon” and “We are dig, dig, digging for you” on the other side.
There are only bushes on wheeled carts in front of the entrance. We can clearly see construction crews all over the ride completing tasks such as last minute painting, adding details, putting up fans so the sunny part of the queue won’t be so uncomfortable, checking the interactive parts of the queue, working on audio, track walking…all the last minute things that need to be done prior to turning the ride over to Park Operations. We are told that the cast is indeed in training which one of the necessary things prior to the ride opening. CM’s outside the ride are telling us it will be May before any guests will be riding. The CM opening and Annual Passholder soft opening have not been scheduled yet. Keep your eye on the Walt Disney World website for opening of FastPass+ times. As soon as the opening date is announced we are told we will be able to start scheduling FastPass+ times!
The entrance is facing Storybook Treats in Fantasyland. Both the FastPass+ and Standby Entrance’s are at the same area. Much of the queue is in the sun this morning and I am so glad to see many fans are being installed and painted for this area. When these trees mature it will be a nice shady queue. The fact that this ride is completely surrounded on all sides by other attractions, the walkway, etc, the show is extensive and the 360-degree story is being told so well. The attention to detail is amazing! There are smiles on most of the construction crews today. There is one small construction wall at the back of the ride, next to the DVC building. There is finishing work going on inside the mountain and we were able to get just a glimpse of the interior section that is the entrance to the “Vault”.
There is a new Stroller Area to the right of the entrance that is already being put to good use. We see just a bit more of the track with sharp turns, lifts, dips, etc. Be sure to check out all the latest photos below.
