May 28, 2014 – The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train Attraction Officially Opens

“Rock around like never before.”

On May 28, 2014, the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train attraction officially opened in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom Park, after it was dedicated on May 2. Considered the crown jewel of the New Fantasyland area of the park, the ride features never-seen-before Audio-Animatronic technology, as well as an innovative ride system that allows each car to swing individually as it races around the track through the dwarfs’ mine shaft. As the ride can have a wait time up to over two hours long, an interactive queue was added to entertain guests so they can “sort jewels” as they wait to board the mine train. Several of the pieces of the old attraction Snow White’s Scary Adventures were reused in this attraction.

December 5, 2012 – A Dragon Flies Above New Fantasyland


“Disney Parks Blog has been building hype all week of dragon sightings around New Fantasyland.”

On December 5, 2012, hours before New Fantasyland was to open in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom Park, a dragon was spotted flying over the area. The dragon, a one-time only spectacle, was able to breathe fire and roar as it took to the skies. According to the Disney-owned tumblr page, DisneyDragons, the dragon is a 41-year-old Norwegian Firebreather that was born in the Magic Kingdom.
