Disneyland is just one week away from reopening its gates after a year-long closure, and Disney fans are not the only ones who can’t wait to step back inside Walt’s magical kingdom. Disneyland Resort President Ken Potrock can’t wait for the reopening and has been getting fans excited about coming back to the theme park by sharing Cast Member and attraction photos on Instagram.
Potrock’s latest Instagram post brought viewers to Disneyland’s newly reimagined attraction, Snow White’s Enchanted Wish. The ride was previously called Snow White’s Scary Adventures, but a refurbishment was announced in 2019 and completed while the theme park was shut down.
I cannot wait until you all can experience Snow White’s Enchanted Wish! It’s full of so many wonderful new elements, and you’ll get to meet awesome Cast Members like my new friend, Stan!
The second shot of the mine scene with Doc may remind Guests of the Walt Disney World attraction, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. Snow White’s Enchanted Wish seems to have taken inspiration from the Mine Train attraction, from its bright, vibrant colors, to the lifelike modeling of the Dwarfs. This new ride is sure to be as impressive as Seven Dwarfs Mine Train!
Snow White’s Enchanted Wish will give viewers a new look at the story of Disney’s first princess and show the happy ending she gets with her prince. Snow White’s Scary Adventure was a dark ride that often scared younger riders, so the newly reimagined attraction will surely be a hit among Guests young and old.
Snow White’s Enchanted Wish is described by Disney Parks Blog:
You will delight in new appearances of beloved characters, including Snow White cheerfully dancing and twirling with the Seven Dwarfs in their cozy cottage. You may even notice the scent of Doc’s handiwork – a baking apple pie – wafting through the air, before heading “off to work we go!”
Vibrant new shadow projections bring to life the dwarfs as they march happily off to work in the mine singing “Heigh-Ho.” The most dazzling scene is the mine, which sparkles with shimmering lighting effects and glittering jewels all around.
There are more surprises to discover and we cannot wait for you to experience the magic of this timeless fairytale, and Snow White’s enchanted wish coming true at last!
Disney Parks Blog also recently shared a first look at the new poster artwork for Snow White’s Enchanted Wish. See the artwork below:
This is not the first Disneyland Park attraction that Potrock has given followers a look at on his Instagram. He also has shown followers shots inside of Space Mountain, a group of Ghost Hosts outside the Haunted Mansion, and a small glimpse of the newly refurbished King Arthur Carrousel.
Potrock posted about the Carrousel:
Another opening-day attraction is back and it looks better than ever. The newly refurbished King Arthur Carrousel looks AMAZING! I had the pleasure of meeting some of the Cast Members who worked on the restoration of the attraction and repainting of the 68 horses – no two of which are painted alike. I was delighted to learn that one of the horses is originally from Coney Island amusement park, just a few miles from where I grew up in “da Bronx.”
With how long Guests waited to buy Disneyland tickets and secure their reservations, Ken Potrock surely isn’t the only one feeling the Disney love and excitement.
