May 2, 2014 – The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train Attraction has Dedication Ceremony
“Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is both literally and figuratively the centerpiece of New Fantasyland, so we knew it had to be something special.”
On May 2, 2014, a special dedication ceremony was held for the newest attraction in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom Park: The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. Known as the “crowning jewel” of New Fantasyland, the long-awaited attraction was introduced by Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Tom Staggs, along with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. At the ceremony, Staggs announced that the official opening date to the public would be May 28th, but invited everyone to celebrate that the final component had been added to the ride. The ride features the latest in Audio-Animatronics and special effects, and the coaster itself features the novelty of swinging cars that rock as the coaster travels down the track.
