Default Seven Dwarfs Mine Train

I feel a little like a traitor to Six Flags, but WDW has finally finished the 7 Dwarfs Mine Train. Here's the best video I've found of it so far-

Yeah, it's one of the best things they've done in a while. I guess the "New Fantasyland" is complete now.

Yep, it's now complete.

In my opinion, the expanded Fantasyland was an excellent idea. For the longest time, much of that area had an identity crisis, changing names and themes faster than a square dance.

That's one of the better videos I've seen of the new ride. Looks really cool. The ride itself looks a whole lot like Big Thunder Mountain, but the theming is great. The animatronics are incredible.

I haven't watched any of the videos (by choice) but planning on riding it on 5/31 (it "opens" 5/28 though I'm fairly certain it will be in soft openings by next weekend if not before) so I'l let you know

It's a nice ride...smoothest & quietest coaster I think I've ever been on...the new projection animations are great, i just wished the ride moved slower through the ride scenes (it does slow down quite a bit but not enough to really look at all the details)...the queue is quite nice also

I'll be in Orlando in a couple of weeks, but won't be able to visit WDW this time around. But I'll definitely be making a stop the next time around to see the new Fantasyland. VERY classic Disney. Thanks for the video, Capstan, as well as Vance's review.

I went to a private party at MK last night for the IAAPA conference and the new ride is great - maybe one of my favorite at Disney.

Anyone know what the construction between the end of Main St. and the castle is for? Construction wall are blocking a pretty large are on both sides of the main drag up to the castle.
