Mine Coaster Concept Art

Some info on the Seven Dwarves Mine Coaster was spoken about on the Disney Parks Blog. Artist renderings have been presented to the public, with more apparently on the way. Though we are looking at a 2013 opening, it seems that headway is finally beginning with this attraction. With Snow White's Scary Adventures set to close in February (as rumor would have it) it seems that there will not be much going on in the Magic Kingdom come February. With Dumbo set to be moved during that time, and Snow White to close, and the announced Big Thunder Mountain refurbishment the park will be lacking at this time, but to see the bright future in new Fantasyland makes it an exciting time to be a Disney fan.

Talking Mickey?

In the next step towards all things NextGen, Mickey has been spotted in Main Street Theater, which seems somewhat normal, except that he has begun talking! Apparently we are being introduced to some of the newest technology dealing with real-life characters. This is a newer initiative that Disney has been trying to install throughout the park, and this might be just the beginning of it.

Just imagine not having to explain to your children why Mickey Mouse cannot talk to you. It will bring even more to life in Walt Disney World. Lets see where this leads as it was only around for a 30 minute test run. This might become a more permanent occurrence, and that might completely change the Walt Disney World character meet and greet landscape.
