Description And Comments

Snow White's Scary Adventures is currently undergoing a multi-month refurbishment to make it less scary. An exact opening date is currently unknown, but Disney has said the ride will reopen in Spring, 2020.

Here, you ride in a mining car in the dark through a series of sets drawn from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The attraction has a Perils of Pauline flavor and features Snow White as she narrowly escapes harm at the hands of the wicked witch. The action and effects are a cut above Mr. Toad's Wild Ride but not as good as Peter Pan's Flight. Hightech projection effects enhance the magic mirror and rainstorm scenes.

Touring Tips

Enjoyable but not particularly compelling. Experience it if the lines are not too long or on a second-day visit. Ride before 11:00 a.m. or after 5:00 p.m. if possible. Also, don't take the "scary" part too seriously. The witch looks mean, but most kids take her in stride. Or maybe not. A mother from Knoxville, Tennessee, commented:

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 other scary rides] right in stride, was near panic when our car stopped unexpectedly twice during Snow White. [After Snow White] my 6-year-old niece spent a lot of time asking, "Will a witch jump out at you?" before other rides. So I suggest that you explain a little more what this ride is about. It's tough on preschoolers who are expecting forest animals and dwarfs.

It really punches the buttons of the 6-and-under crowd, when other more traditionally scary rides don’t. Many kids, once frightened by Snow White’s Scary Adventures, balk at trying any other attractions that go into the dark, regardless of how benign they are.

Snow White's Scary Adventures Wait Times

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 Disneyland Crowd Level. The blue bars represent the average "peak" wait time (that is, how long the line will be 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.

Special Comments

Quite intimidating for preschoolers; worth seeing if the wait is not long. Originally, Snow White was no where to be seen, as you were supposed to be experiencing the journey through her eyes. In 1983, in response to many confused guests, the attraction was refurbished to add Snow White.
