Walt Disney World has released new images showing off the view from the top of the enormous faux mountain that hosts the soon-to-open Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at the Magic Kingdom.
The new roller coaster will be the centerpiece of the expanded New Fantasyland area of the park, and has been cleverly designed to reflect the theme of its surrounding attractions. From the front, guests will see a wooded entrance leading to the Seven Dwarfs' cottage. From the back, it will resemble a seaside village (complete with a waterfall), tying in with Under the Sea - Journey of the Little Mermaid.
When on the ride itself, guests will enjoy stunning views across New Fantasyland. The image below shows what they'll see when looking across towards Beast's Castle and the Belle's Village area:
The second photo looks back towards "old" Fantasyland, including Cinderella Castle, Prince Charming Regal Carrousel and Pinocchio's Village Haus:
Finally, here's some of Disney's original concept artwork, showing an overall view of New Fantasyland:
The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train will take guests on a tour around the diamond mine from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, as well as through the enchanted forest and Snow White's cottage. The ride's main gimmick is its unique cars, which will swing outwards as they round corners in the track. Disney's signature audio-animatronic characters are also set to feature heavily in the family-friendly ride.
