According to these Micechat pics, it looks more and more likely that the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train will be opening quite soon. By that, we mean that soft openings will most likely take place during early to mid March and the ride will be fully commissioned and running by Easter, if not sooner.
The reason for this speculation? Those boards are beginning to come down!
In most other instances, this really does herald the wind down of most major activities in the construction program as Disney literally hate letting workers in plain sight, spoil the magic. Sure, any fine tuning here and there in public is fine in Disney’s book, but overall, ‘no boards = fun coming soon’.
The tilting mild but not so wild family ride will definitely be a huge hit and finishes off the biggest ever expansion in the Magic Kingdom. Let’s hope that Disney turn on more projects like this, especially at Hollywood Studios and Epcot!!
