While my wife was spending time with her sister and niece at the Bon Voyage Breakfast, my daughter and I headed into the Magic Kingdom for some exciting time in the parks. We hopped on the monorail for the short ride from The Grand Floridian to the Magic Kingdom. I really wish there was a way to make a walkway from The Grand Floridian to the Magic Kingdom like the walkway from The Contemporary but, alas, the water way where the Electrical Water Pageant floats are stored gets in the way. Still we were in the park before 8 am. However, we could not beat the end of the opening stage show and had to walk through the crowds to our first stop, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train.
The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train officially opened for business today after a week of soft openings. As a result, the New Fantasyland project is now complete. The expansion has brought the addition of another Dumbo ride, a re-themed Great Goofini ride to fit in more with the Storybook Circus location, Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid, Enchanted Tales with Belle, and the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. The project took three years to complete. But today’s focus on the mine train.
