Disneyland is on the cusp of its grand reopening and there is definitely excitement in the air. One of the most highly anticipated Disneyland park attractions that Guests can’t wait to experience is the newly reimagined Snow White’s Enchanted Wish.
Thanks to the D23 Inside Disney Podcast, Disney fans can hear Disneyland President Ken Potrock’s thoughts on the Snow White ride refurbishment. He went into great detail and discussed why the reimagining of this dark, scary adventure ride was the right thing to do.
In the episode, Potrock explained how the idea to transform the attraction started:
“I had always heard that it was historically a scary ride. That seems sort of odd when you think about, you know, who the audience for that particular attraction is. You know, and it was a little bit dark, and a little bit ominous and we wanted it to be less scary. And so we got a group of Imagineers together to really help me craft the story so that it had the ability to have a happy ending. That it felt more joyous and festive, and I think we’ve done a really good job of it. I mean, you know, some of the things that we were able to do, like including actual footage from the film into the attraction. That was just new and a great new way to help tell a wonderful story.”
This just proves that a lot of thought, creativity, and magic went into creating Fantasyland’s Snow White’s Enchanted Wish! And, we cannot wait to experience this newly reimagined attraction ourselves when the theme park reopens.
Disney describes the newly updated Snow White’s Enchanted Wish ride as:
Settle into a wooden mine cart and accompany Snow White as she flees from the evil Queen.
Begin your fairytale journey in the cozy cottage of the Seven Dwarfs, then visit dazzling mines filled with glowing gems. Soon you’ll be riding into the Queen’s sorcery chamber and discovering a magic mirror just as Snow White bites into a poisoned apple!
When all looks lost, will Snow White find her own happily ever after?
