Walt Disney World announces plans for Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom

Posted Wednesday, January 19, 2011 9:30 PM | Contributed by kevin38

Walt Disney World said Tuesday it will build a new indoor roller coaster in the Magic Kingdom as part of its expansion of the theme park's Fantasyland section. Dubbed "The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train," the moderately intense attraction will feature a first-of-its-kind ride system in which vehicles swing back and forth along a twisting track. The attraction will be set to music from the classic animated movie "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs."

With Potter to the East and Legos to the West it is almost like Disney said, "well...we lost the boys so let is go Princess crazy". The Snow White Coaster might address that to some extent but with Belle, Ariel and a Princess meet 'n greet as three of the main thrusts of this expansion it sure seems they were going in the opposite direction of the other players.

Some boys like princesses too. ;)

But seriously, Disney needs to do something for the boys. To much Princess stuff makes me nauseous.

Disney has Tomorrowland and Adventureland and, well, most of the rest of the park for us boys to play.

Right. There is plenty boy stuff to do. Besides "that Ariel is hot!"

The Dwarf coaster sounds like a... SUSPENDED!!!

What I wouldn't give for that to be a Splinter coaster....

I saw the rendering. Sometimes they are way off. Anyhow, don't quash my dreams! It's Disney after all!
