Original article:

Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is one of the most popular attractions at Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. It typically has one of — if not the — longest wait times at the theme park every single day. It also tends to sell out of the FastPass+ time slots very quickly.

Today, however, it looks as though the popular Magic Kingdom attraction has been temporarily closed for reasons unknown — on Magic Kingdom’s 49th Birthday nonetheless. So far, at the time of this article’s publication, the ride has been down for around two hours.

When checking the My Disney Experience app, the attraction is currently listed as “temporarily closed,” which you can see reflected in the screenshot below.

Inside the Magic is inside the parks today and was able to confirm that the attraction is down for technical difficulties and the Cast Members say they hope the ride will be back up and running sometime today.

More on Seven Dwarfs Mine Train

If you’ve never had the chance to ride the popular Magic Kingdom attraction, the official Disney World description reads:

Race through the diamond mine from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs on a swaying family coaster ride.

Deep inside an age-old mountain, clamber into a rustic mine train and make your way up a steep incline. 

At the summit, feel the wind across your face as you navigate hairpin turns and head deep into the mine shaft—your creaky cart teetering back and forth. Soon, the dark sparkles with glittering jewels and you encounter the Seven Dwarfs, whistling and singing while they work. 

Chug through the cavern and climb skyward. At the peak, glimpse an incredible view of Fantasyland before racing back down to the foot of the mountain.
