Earlier this month it was announced iconic Disneyland attraction Snow White's Scary Adventures would be closing sometime next year for a major refurbishment. A permit obtained by the OC Register states that refurbishment work will include the removal and replacement of show sets, props and scenes. In addition during this refurbishment, new structural beams will be installed, rock work will be refurbished and electrical upgrades will be made.
And though the information was scarce on this refurbishment when it was first announced, Disney has released some new details about what we can expect from this reimagined ride when it reopens after next year's refurbishment.
Reimagining the story of Snow White
Disney announced several days ago that during this refurbishment of Snow White's Scary Adventures, Walt Disney Imagineering will be "reimagining" the story of Snow White, with enhanced story details and new scenes, including a vignette showing Snow White in a forest, recalling the scene from the film where the original Disney princess awakes from her deep sleep following true love's kiss. In addition, a new finale where Snow White is reunited with her animal friends, and a large and welcoming castle is seen in the distance will be added during this refurbishment
In addition to refreshing the story of this attraction, Walt Disney Imagineers will implement state-of-the-art audio and visual technology throughout Snow White’s Scary Adventures during this refurbishment as well, which will include new music, LED black lighting, laser projections, and a new animation system. These upgrades are in line with what we saw in the original permit filing, which specifically mentioned new projector platforms, as part of the upcoming refurbishment.
