Disney’s Seven Dwarfs Mine Train Ride Picture Gallery

Snow White mine train ride

Today I decided to go to Disney’s Magic Kingdom and take some pictures of the new seven dwarfs mine train ride. That’s the new roller coaster ride they are making in the new Fantasyland section.

It’s based on Snow White and the seven dwarfs and features the diamond mine they worked in. So the roller coaster goes both outside and inside. A lot like the big thunder mountain railroad ride.

I must say I was surprised at how sharp and twisty the rails seem to be. It looks like you will experience some pretty sharp curves and drops. Even a bit more than the Thunder Mountain ride.

Disney’s Snow White Mine Train Ride Ready To Open!

7 dwarfs mine train ride

For those of you who love Disney’s Magic Kingdom and Snow White, you’ll be happy to know the new Seven Dwarfs Mine Train ride is almost ready to open! It’s located in the new fantasyland area of Disney’s Magic Kingdom theme park.

I have always thought they should make a Snow White and the 7 dwarfs roller coaster, with the main theme being in the diamond mines the dwarfs worked in. Well now they finally made it, and it looks great!

The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train will tell the story of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” from the perspective of the dwarfs, taking riders on an indoor-and-outdoor trip, with side-to-side swaying cars. It will go down into the diamond mine, which should be pretty cool.

New Disney Villains in the Celebrate the Magic show

Disney shows

For those who don’t know, Disney has had a new nighttime show at The Magic Kingdom theme park for about a year now. Called “Celebrate the Magic” it projects colorful Disney scenes onto the Castle at night, set to music.

It’s really a very cool show, using the whole castle as a giant screen. They normally show this just before the fireworks show, on the nights they have it.

Well now starting Sept. 1st to Nov. 1st the show will include more of the Disney villains. Such as Ursula from the little mermaid, Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty and more.

I assume they are doing this because of Halloween, which makes sense. On the nights they have the “Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party” at the Magic Kingdom, the show will play after normal guest have left.

So that will give a nice refreshment to the show if you’ve seen it before. As well as adding to the whole Halloween theme of villains. Make sure you check it out if you have not seen it yet! :)

Disney Fantasyland new Be Our Guest Restaurant


Located in the Beast’s Castle inside the new Disney fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom, Be Our Guest Restaurant offers a unique dining experience. Guests have the opportunity to step into a time machine and visit the famous ballroom setting from the animated film “Beauty and the Beast.”

This fabulous venue has three dining rooms that can accommodate 550 guests. Its name is inspired by the classic song from that film. Both the dinner table service and counter service menus offer French cuisine.

This uniquely designed restaurant opened on December 7, 2012. To get here, you must cross a stone bridge lined with gargoyles. Once you get inside, you will be greeted by enchanted suits of armor.

Disney’s Magic Kingdom Celebrate the Magic show video

Once again it’s time for me to show you all some things I took from the holidays over at Disney! This Youtube video is one I took of the new Disney “Celebrate the Magic” night time show at the Magic Kingdom.

I took this during the Christmas holidays. What they do is transform Cinderella’s castle into a giant screen they project many different Disney characters, movies and other fun things.

It’s really amazing to see this in person, a video does not do it much justice. Seeing the whole castle jump and dance, transform into different colors and shapes is really something.

It is also done with music, which you can hear in the video. Plus they add a few fireworks and stuff. Actually they have their main fireworks show right after this show. It’s something you want to be sure to see if you go.

They only do this on select nights, or peak season. So check to see if it is being played and plan a night to go when it is. You’ll be really glad you saw this amazing show!

Crystal Arts shop at Disney’s Magic Kingdom theme park

Disney's crystal arts shop

There are many great shops you can find inside Disney’s magic kingdom theme park. As someone who goes there a lot I’m a bit jaded about all the stuff. Most is overpriced plastic “stuff”.

However one shop I highly recommend checking out the next time your at the magic kingdom is the crystal arts shop right at the front of the park on main street USA. It’s on your right as you walk toward the castle.

Inside here you can see the most beautiful cut crystal figurines, blown glass art, spun glass figures and lots more. They have a glass works artist that makes spun glass art as you watch.

Halloween picture gallery from Disney’s Magic Kingdom

Magic Kingdom picture gallery

I’ve been very busy with my Vermont vacation. Right after that I brought my sister down to enjoy the Disney theme parks. We went to Disney’s Magic Kingdom about a week before Halloween.

Of course that means they had the park decked out in Halloween decorations, with Mickey’s not so scary Halloween party going on at selected nights. I decided to take a bunch of pictures there and make a picture gallery.

I tried to get most of the Halloween decorations in the pictures. But I also took shots of the new fantasyland they are building, with some areas already done.

I also took shots of the newly re-done Mickey’s toon land, with the twin Dumbo rides and lots more. So there’s a bit of everything in here to see. So check out my Disney’s Magic Kingdom Halloween picture gallery page below, enjoy! :)

Walt Disney New Storybook Circus in Fantasyland youtube video

As I mentioned here in another post a week or two ago, one part of the new Fantasyland project at Disney’s Magic Kingdom theme park is now open. A part of that is called Storybook Circus.

I’m sure your all wondering just what it looks like, so here’s a cool Disney youtube video of it. It’s actually quite a long video that gives you lots of details of what is inside.

Part of the Storybook Circus area is the re-done Dumbo ride, which you can see in this video. They added lots of details to the ride making it look even better.

Another part of Storybook Circus has Goofy’s “Great Goofini” Barnstormer roller coaster. It’s a mild roller coaster made for small kids but adults can also ride it.

The Magic Kingdom train also has a station here that is really done up in a cool way with lots to see. Some of the video also shows a bit of the other parts of the new Fantasyland under construction that will open later.

So check out the video of Disney’s new Storybook Circus area to see what you can go on and do now, plus some peeks at what is to come! :)

Most Disney fans may or may not know that Fantasyland at Disney’s Magic Kingdom theme park has been going through some makeovers. New attractions are being built and long time rides are being moved and touched up.

Well one of the first sections of the new Fantasyland has opened, just in time for the spring breakers. The new Dumbo ride and Goofy’s Barnstormer roller coaster are both now open with a new look.

They both do the same thing as they always did. But the Dumbo ride has a new color theme to it, with some different scenes painted on the ride. Golden storks also are on the top of the ride.
