This morning was the dedication of the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train in New Fantasyland, and we FINALLY have the information we have all been waiting for! The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train will officially open in the Magic Kingdom on Wednesday, May 28, 2014.

The attraction may see some soft opening any time now; however, do keep in mind that soft openings are not guaranteed and that even if the attraction does open, it may only be open for part of the day.

During the cute ceremony, which was live streamed via the Disney Parks Blog, Snow White joined her friends, the Seven Dwarfs, along with Walt Disney World Parks and Resorts Chairman, Tom Staggs, as they used a golden pickax to officially dedicate the attraction, which is the final piece in the New Fantasyland project.

According to Mr. Staggs, “Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is both literally and figuratively the centerpiece of New Fantasyland, so we knew it had to be something special,” Tom said. “The attraction appeals to everyone in the family and provides just the right blend of heart, humor, and thrill while keeping with the charm of this special land.”

It is exciting that we finally have an official opening date for this brand new attraction. Who’s ready to ride?

    When do FP+ reservations begin? I’m going June 17-24 and don’t see that it’s an option at that time. It is listed, but the circle to select it isn’t available.

    So what is the opening going to do to crowd levels on 5/28? That is currently our only MK day. I managed to snag a FPP for 7DMT, but still considering rearranging for fear of a very busy MK park…

    Was really relying on the “inside” info touring plans has been showing up until now. They were showing an opening date (although speculative w/ no official announcement)of May 2,2014. Did my palnning for 2 wks later, just in case, thinking it would be safe. Now very disappointed!

    Could someone please explain how soft openings work? Do they post it anywhere or do we just have to keep checking?

    I think we have broken Disney. AT least for me the web site and the app are both down.
