It is my understanding that the animatronic dwarfs from the Snow White ride are being moved to the mine train attraction.
I'm hoping that the coaster aspect of this is on the tame kiddie coaster side. I could envision the indoor part of the ride being similar to recent and earlier versions of the dark ride attraction ( I remember an old diamond mine scene from the 70's at DL where Dopey had diamonds in his eyes), without all of the frightening moments with the witch/ queen! I personally can handle thrill rides, but I think it is important to make this ride kid friendly so that the classic story of Snow White can maintain a fan base with future generations.

It's not a "thrill ride" it will be kinda like Barnstormer and Thunder Mountain. The only thrill is that the mine cars rock back and forth while you're riding. There's a mock up video of the ride somewhere around here.

I worked at that attraction on my internship so I have a soft spot in my heart for it. I used to do walk- throughs at end of night in it. I even took pictures in some of the scenes. I will cherish those pictures now

We absolutely love this ride! We are very disappointed that they have closed this one down. We are even more disappointed to know that they closed it down to turn it into a Princess Meet and Greet! Surely they could have had this and the Princess Meet and Greet and the Dwarf Coaster.

Starbucks has arrived at WDW! MK, EPCOT and soon the entire World!

Remember - Snow White was not originally supposed to close with the creation of the new Fantasyland...

The princess meet and greet was bulldozed when Toon Town went away... so they planned to create unique locations for Belle/Ariel/Cindy/Aurora in the new area. When the Aurora/Cindy locations were bumped out for the Mine Train... they had to find somewhere new to put them.

Can you imagine the Magic Kingdom without a Cinderella Meet and Greet?

The temporary location on Main Street is very lackluster when you consider the newer and better themed M&Gs being built now. It has never made sense to meet princesses on turn of the century Main Street (they also didn't make sense in Toon Town) - they deserve to be in Fantasyland. Unfortunately, there is very limited space to put them.

It's always hard to see an old classic removed - but I can understand why it happened.
