ORLANDO — When Walt Disney and his animators named the Seven Dwarfs, there were many monikers that didn’t make the cut, including Baldy, Burpy, Tubby, Dizzy and Wheezy. The ones that did stick, however, have been lovable household names since 1937, when the classic film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs hit the big screen.
Now, with the Magic Kingdom’s Seven Dwarfs Mine Train attraction, which will open May 28, they will shine again. And this time, in an even bigger way. Throughout the attraction, Disney “imagineers” tell the story from the dwarfs’ perspective. In fact, Snow White doesn’t even make a cameo until the very end of the ride.
“This is the next chapter in the story,” says imagineer Mark Kohl.
