While visiting the Magic Kingdom yesterday, WDWNT Reporter Joe Hogarty couldn’t help but notice that the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train was being tested with trains full of weights. With more of the construction walls coming down yesterday, we can get a clear look at the trains running through most of the outdoor portion of the ride and see how they will swing and sway with guests inside:

Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is scheduled to open in May 2014, but no exact date has been given yet. The attraction will be the final component to open in the New Fantasyland project which was announced almost 5 years ago and has been under construction for 4 years.

The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train looks like so much fun, I can’t wait, I can’t wait, I can’t wait! I honestly cannot believe the New Fantasyland expansion was announced almost 5 years ago, it really helped that all the staff at WDWNT kept us diehard fans up to date with the progress so it felt as though we were there throughout the building of it. Thanks!
