New Concept Art for the Fantasyland area shows a Snow White featured area, with a walk through of Snow White’s Cottage as well as a new steel Vekoma coaster, the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train.  A new princess meet and greet area will take place of the original Snow White ride.  The new coaster will travel both indoors and out.

Unlike some of Disney’s other coasters like California Screamin’ and Rock n’ Rollercoaster, this coaster will be more of a family ride that appeals to all park visitors.  The ride would be on the track, but the cart itself would be on swinging hinges to simulate a swinging mine car.  Although, there aren’t any speculations yet of a Seven Dwarfs Mine Train opening in the Disneyland Resort, many successful rides at Disney World open in the Disneyland Resort, such as Space Mountain, Tower of Terror, and Goofy’s Sky School.

The ride will pass by water, rocks, and it will feature special effects in the indoor-part of the ride. The indoor part will have music from the famous movie; Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
