This is a bit out of our normal realm of photography, but while on a family trip to Disney this weekend, we discovered that the new Seven Dwarfs Mine Train was open during the evening for preview rides. Needless to say, we were pretty excited, but there was only one problem – I had left our work cameras in the car. So, with iPhone and a little waterproof camera in hand, I tried my best to get some descent shots to share with friends and followers alike. But, because of the very low light, the results weer lackluster. Fast forward 24 hours, and we made a special trip to ride again, this time with our professional gear in tow.
So, here’s a photographic sneak peek of Disney’s great new ride before it opens! Let’s start with the line – which was about 60 minutes long. As Disney has began to do, there are several great game stations with interactive screens (above) and fun activities that help the time go by. You can see photos of each station in the gallety below. The ride itself is about as quick and slithery as Thunder Mountain – though smoother thanks to the suspended cars – and it also has a slower portion in the middle that takes you on a tour through the Dwarfs’ gem-crusted mine (below).
