The 7 Dwarfs Mine Train opening is coming soon, and the latest installment to the Disney World expansion revealed this week that the ride — dedicated at the park just this Friday morning — is something that Snow White would certainly approve of. The latest new Disney World ride is one for family members of all ages, and its sparkling jewels, soft turns, and riveting story are expected to be a big hit later this May. News Max confirms this Friday, May 2, 2014, that the 7 Dwarfs Mine Train is set to officially open this May 28 and will be a novel part of Disney’s Fantasyland site.

While Disney World aficionados have likely been aware of the new ride for months, the 7 Dwarfs Mine Train opening coming in just a few weeks is no doubt a major excitement for fans of the dwarfs and Snow White. Set to be available to the public towards the end of May, the ride is said to be the final piece of Disney World’s New Fantasyland expansion, which is part of the most massive expansion since the theme park’s initial opening way back in 1971.

Although some of the family-friendly ride is remaining under wraps for now, Yahoo! Finance News shares today that Disney has revealed a glimpse via video of what passengers can expect hopping aboard the 7 Dwarfs Mine Train ride. As would be easily expected, the whole ride is based on the classic animated movie and one of Disney’s first and most successful films, “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” from 1937.

"It's not hair-raising, but it promises to provide some good old-fashioned family fun," Michelle Meredith, of WESH-TV reported Friday. "The setting is a gem mining expedition with the Seven Dwarfs, and it's a ride for the family, so the inclines won't give anyone nightmares, and the turns won't upset little stomachs."

What’s more, adds a source named Dewayne Bevil from the Orlando Sentinel, the ride isn’t just for little children, however. A myriad of cool special effects and eye-grabbing images are a way that even older passengers and even adults will get a warm feeling while enjoying the ride following the 7 Dwarfs Mine Train opening.

"It's shiny, curvy, hilly, stealthy, Sleepy, Grumpy and Doc," Bevil wrote of ride, which the media and VIP checked out this week. "The latest coaster in Disney's collection, the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, balances fun elements with a tiny pinch of peril. … The attraction runs indoors and outdoors, tucked into a newly constructed 'mountain' behind Cinderella Castle."

The inside of the mountain is said to be one of the most amazing parts of the ride, added Bevil, saying that everyone will get a really cool look at the seven dwarfs in an unexpected way due to the gifts of modern technology. So for Disney World fans of all ages, reviews of the 7 Dwarfs Mine Ride have been very positive so far. Be sure to grab your pickaxe, your shovel, and your loved ones so you can enjoy this latest expansion opportunity in Fantasyland for you and your family!

"The ride next travels inside the mine, which is lines with cartloads of jewels," Bevil wrote. "But don't be distracted by the shiny objects. Instead, take a good look at the faces of our seven little friends, some of who, are busy at work. These are very animated Audio-Animatronics. They are accompanied by the 1937 Disney classic 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.' Once the dwarfs' shift ends, it's home from work we go, which starts with another lift hill."

Just be sure to avoid that evil stepmother at all costs.
