Video: Disney shows virtual ride-through on Magic Kingdom's Seven Dwarfs Mine Train

At the media event for the opening of New Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World offered up a video preview of the upcoming Seven Dwarfs Mine Train coaster.

Originally intended to open alongside the area's other new attractions, the debut of the coaster has since been delayed until 2014. The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is set to be a cross between a classic Disney dark ride packed with animatronics, and a traditional coaster experience. It will take guests on a musical ride deep into a diamond mine, accompanied by tunes from the classic animation Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

The coaster's circuit will feature both indoor and outdoor sections, parts of which are shown in the video below (captured by Inside the Magic). However, some sections of the ride - which will use a first-of-its-kind system that allows the vehicles to swing back and forth as they move along the twisting, turning track - are kept under wraps.

The coaster will be the final new attraction to form part of the expanded New Fantasyland area at the Magic Kingdom. The Under the Sea - Journey of The Little Mermaid dark ride and Belle's Village area are due to open officially on December 6, 2012.
