Now that Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is officially open at the Magic Kingdom, guests will block to try out the new ride. If you plan to be one of them, here are four tips to help you get the highest level of enjoyment:

1) Get a Fastpass+. Yes, that can be a challenge since this ride should be wildly popular all summer, but you can do it if you're persistent. Try to get one as soon as you're able (guests staying at a Disney resort can do this starting 60 days before their trip), and keep looking even if you don't score one on your first trip. There's nothing like bypassing a line of an hour or morem waving your Magic Band, and hopping on board within minutes.

2) Experience the queue line if you get a chance. If you're lucky enough to catch a time when the line isn't insanely long, do another ride where you go through the regular queue. The games and details are well worth a wait and will make it go by much more quickly.

3) Do a day ride and a night ride. This might be tricky, depending on the crowd, but Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is a different ride in the daytime and at night. I love the night time scenery, with both Cinderella Castle and the Beast's castle lit up in such a magical way.

4) Ride the front seat and the back seat if you can. This might not be possible because of the crowds, but those are my two favorite seats. The front gives you a great view, while the back has the most motion. But don't worry, as that motion isn't scary at all. Virtually anyone can handle this ride.
