in Walt Disney World

Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is one of the most popular attractions at Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. It typically has one of the longest — if not the longest— wait times at the theme park every single day.

Though this attraction draws Guests in each and every day, it’s no secret that sometimes, the coaster experiences technical difficulties and closes down. Well, to prevent these technical difficulties, Disney will soon perform construction on the Magic Kingdom coaster according to a new permit filed.

Disney filed two permits, one for “general construction” and one to “provide labor, material, and/or electrical for construction” for the location of Seven Dwarfs Mine Train (1256 Magic Kingdom Drive).

Although not much other information is listed on either permit, it is clear that Disney is working with New Horizon Construction Services on some type of construction work for the coaster. As with any other permit, this could be minor construction work, such as ride or animatronic maintenance, or it could be related to something a bit bigger such as installing new elements.

We do want to note that at the time of publication, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is not set to close for refurbishment, and therefore, we suspect that whatever these permits were filed for has to do with minor work, such as fixing small mechanical errors.

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.
