Description And Comments
Mine cars travel through a spook house showing Snow White as she narrowly escapes harm at the hands of the wicked witch. Action and effects are not as good as Peter Pan's Flight or Winnie the Pooh.
The ride is scheduled for demolition as part of the Fantasyland expansion, to be replaced by Princess Fairytale Hall, a Disney-princess meet-and-greet area. We don't yet know when Snow White will be gone for good, so we've left the description here for now.
Parents, take note: This attraction scares the bejeepers out of many children age 6 and younger. Though a 1994 upgrade gave Snow White a larger role, the witch (who is relentless and ubiquitous) continues to be the focal character. Many readers tell us their children have refused to ride any attraction that operates in the dark after having experienced Snow White's Scary Adventures.
A mother from Knoxville, Tennessee, writes:
The outside looks cute and fluffy, but inside, the evil witch just keeps coming at you. My 5-year-old, who rode Space Mountain three times and took The Great Movie Ride's monster from Alien right in stride, was near panic when our car stopped unexpectedly twice during Snow White. It's tough on preschoolers who are expecting forest animals and dwarfs.
Ride Snow White if lines aren't too long or on a second day at the theme park.
This chart shows you roughly how long you'll wait for Snow White's Scary Adventures when you visit on a day with a given Magic Kingdom Crowd Level. The blue bars represent the average "peak" wait time (that is, how long the line will at its busiest). The bottom and top black lines represent the range of peak wait times to expect (for you fellow nerds out there: it's the 5th percentile and 95th percentile of peak wait times). Please note that these are estimates, and for a better forecast for your travel dates, see Snow White's Scary Adventures Wait Times.
- This attraction may be frightening for children.
Terrifying to many young children.
