Aaaah! It's starting to look more and more like a ride, than a construction site. How exciting!!

Maybe the vehicles are bigger than we thought looking at those pictures

Given they have the weights in just the one side in the pictures where there are weights, it appears as if they may be checking clearance between ride vehicle and the "wall" with it swaying in any that given direction. Very cool!

I am really excited because I read an article today that confirmed the height requirement for the train is 38inches! We arent sure if my little guy will be tall enough for the 40 inch rides when we go, but he will most definately meet the 38 inches for this ride!

The first official drop test occurred today at the magic kingdom check out two photos of the happening here.http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blo...-kingdom-park/
It also now appears that there will be 5 cars on each train we are getting closer and closer to opening!

~Thanks for the update!!! Yay! It's *finally* coming together, this coaster is too cute!!! Awww! Anyway, I thought 7DMT was going to be a notch above Big Thunder Mountain on the thrill meter, but it looks like it will be a notch under BTMRR -- but still very fun.

Good to hear from you!

I think I have reached the point in my life where the thrill meter is being overtaken by the experience meter. Hoping it will be a good show.

I have gone and will go to ETWB just to see the mirror.

The coaster is indeed "too cute". It looks like it's going to be the next most popular family ride in the "World". Better get ready to FP+ this one. On the flip side, it is definately a step below BTMRR on the thrillmeter. Combine the outdoor area shown with a slow, indoor dark ride portion and this will be a "fun little ride".

Yeah, we always knew it would be slightly smaller than Thunder, but that doesn't matter. If they can pull off a dark ride combined with the thrill of the coaster, it will be a great.
I hope that the speed is variable so that it goes slow through the dark ride portions and fast through the thrilling portions. This would make the overall ride time longer than Big Thunder as well.
Who knows though, with the leaning carts it might be more thrilling than BTM? People that keep calling this a kiddy coaster need to open their eyes. The theming alone puts it in a different category.
Will it be an E ticket? Probably not but it will still be solid D. Will it make up for the lack of expansion in the FLE? Probably not but I think it will be a better attraction than the old SW ride. I'd rather they kept both but oh well...

Funny cuz up close it looked like a log flume from Splash Mtn but far away looks VERY similar to Thunder Mtn! Hope it offers a different ride experience, looking forward to trying it!
