Now, Walt Disney World Resort officials have filed a new construction permit for the roller coaster. The purpose of the permit is “General Construction”, which is a vague term that can mean anything from minor updates to a major overhaul.
The contractor who will oversee the upcoming project is Groveland, Florida-based New Horizon Construction Services.
It is worth noting that Seven Dwarfs Mine Train does not appear on Disney World’s official “Non-Operable Rides and Attractions” calendar, so it is unlikely that this particular refurbishment will result in a lengthy closure of the roller coaster.
More on Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
The official description of this Snow White and Seven Dwarfs-themed ride reads:
Heigh-Ho, It’s Off You Go!
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.
Whistle While You Wait
Before embarking on your mine train adventure, try your hand at jewel sorting, then wash them with water spigots that play tunes you’ll recognize. When you come across a collection of wooden barrels overflowing with glowing stones, turn each barrel and watch as the ceiling above you is transformed.
