Walt Disney World Parks and Resorts announced the May 28th opening of the latest ride in the Disney Kingdom, the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train will be at the center of the New Fantasyland at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.
“Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is both literally and figuratively the centerpiece of New Fantasyland, so we knew it had to be something special,” Walt Disney World Parks and Resorts Chairman Tom Staggs said. “The attraction appeals to everyone in the family and provides just the right blend of heart, humor, and thrill while keeping with the charm of this special land.”
The minds from Walt Disney Imagineering had to invent new technology in order to make the two dimensional animated Dwarfs into 3-D visual animatronics. Watch the story of how they made the Dwarfs come to life in the video below.
