JessM, you are definitely entitled to your own opinion- I hope no one flames you!!!

I don't think it will be family friendly especially for the littlest Princess lovers that are going to cry that they can't go on the "Princess" ride because it is going to have a 40 inch height requirement. The younger kids won't be able to ride it, nor will people that have any kind of health condition that keeps them off of roller coasters. I know my MIL won't be able to ride it. Personally, I think I will like it because I like coasters. At about 1:30 of this video there is an animation that gives you an idea of what it will be like- looks like it starts off slow and then goes into the roller coaster part. You can't really tell on this video, but I've also seen that the cars themselves are also supposed to swing from side to side a bit in addition to the fast forward movement.

I never understood the need to remove a ride that wasnt in the way and it gives one more thing to do in a park that can get crowded

I would guess that Disney already has plans for what to put there, because otherwise why close it, and especially so long before the Mine Train opens?

I will really miss Snow White, though! It was really well done immersing you in the story, and it never had a bad wait. We'd like to guess while we were waiting in line which dwarf vehicle we'd get

We were there the week before it closed, and rode it over & over. Snow White has always been my favorite princess, and I loved this ride. I honestly had tears in my eyes the last time I rode it. Silly, I know. But I miss it!!

Not me. Bull doze it! That ride caused a whole lot of childhood trauma that continues on well into my adulthood. I only hope there is no appearance by the witch in the new mine train ride otherwise my witch-related anxiety will continue on.

I guess it is like Snow White got upgraded to the little mermaid ride.

Based on the video it looks like a combination of barnstormer and a dark ride. Cool concept and I bet the theming is great. But there is no way this one is a thrill ride. I would think this will be a very popular ride.

We preferred Snow White to the Little Mermaid. The best thing about the Journey of the Little Mermaid is the facade and the queuing area! What a let down the ride was!
Snow White was one of my DH's favourites, he loved the way that witch just kept on popping up and I loved the cottage scene. We missed it on our last visit. Wouldn't mind so much if it was being replaced by something decent but we have no interest in a princess M&G, there's enough princesses in the MK already! Can you tell we have no daughters?!

I'm going to miss it because it was a tame ride we could ride together as a family. I'm sure I'll like the mine train coaster but it's another ride that we are going to have to split up.
