  • [Question] Any new word on soft opening day rumors for Seven Dwarves Mine Train?

    I was wondering if there has been any indication as to when or possibly when the Seven Swarves Mine Train will soft open? It looks like it could open relatively soon based on the PHOTOS - More walls come down at the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train to reveal waterfalls and the main drop article. Does anyone have any light to shed on the subject? Disney has been extremely hush hush about this.

    I saw a post on another board that said CM's have until 2/16 to apply for positions at the Mine Ride. This would mean that they will be in their current positions for at least two more weeks before they can transfer and start training. This would put soft openings in early March at the earliest. Based on this and the amount of work that still needs to be done on the outside I think soft openings sometime in March aren't out of the question. This assumes that there isn't some sort of technical problem with the ride which there have been rumors of.

      ^ I agree early half of March.



      Does anyone have a good pictures of the blue/green stuff toward the top of the hill? Is that grass seed? To make grassy patches on it like Splash has.

                There is a media event April 30th to May 2nd, you can see a picture of the actual invitation here:

                In the past they have done soft opening well before the media event, and had the official grand opening right after the event. I think a soft opening by mid-March would be pretty likely.

                  So this might mean that the opening weekend of the ride is Saturday May 3rd?

                  I looked at the history for New Fantasyland. It opened on December 6th and the media event was held December 5-7.

                  So I hope that week-weekend is when it'll open and I have a TRIP planned for that exact weekend! Yay for me!!!

                      Yeah but it was in soft opening phases as early as October. I remember it was open when I went to the Halloween party and several times in November for the Christmas party and the days after. Be Our Guest wasn't open (you could take a look inside but they weren't ready to serve food yet), but Gaston's Tavern, Little Mermaid ride & Enchanted Tales with Belle all were as well as Storybook Circus.

                        I saw a rumor that the official grand opening will be May 2nd at 10:15 AM. Given that the 2nd is the last day of the press event, and that the park opens at 9:00 AM that day, this seems very plausible.

                          cast members have yet to ride and they are always the first. I have heard a rumor that maybe easter sunday would have soft opening as that is when anna and elsa also make their debut

                              Some pictures were posted of yesterday of people riding the ride, it appeared to be Imaginneers and maybe executives, so we are getting closer.
