Heigh-Ho! Seven Dwarfs Mine Train Opening at Walt Disney World| Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Walt Disney World, Walt Disney Walt Disney World 's Seven Dwarfs Mine Train officially opened in orlando vacation packages Orlando, Florida, Friday morning as the jewel in the crown of the Magic Kingdom's recent expansion, New Fantasyland . Incorporating the major thematic elements of the now-shuttered dark-ride staple Snow White's Scary Adventures with what Disney Imagineers call a "family-friendly" roller-coaster, the attraction's 20-passenger trains slow down inside a dark cavern to provide a mirthful glimpse of the popular Disney characters at work, then speeds into gear to zip through their well-landscaped and hilly village. On the intensity scale, the Mine Train measures closer to The Barnstormer than to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, with gentle curves and the tallest hill 41 feet high. Meanwhile, the visual experience inside the mine is enhanced by LED-lit "gems" that literally allow the Audio-Animatronic Dopey to have stars in his eyes. Other details include an exact replica of their cottage, with an evil visitor outside the door. The attraction will be fully opened to the public on May 28. Sleepy Does What Sleepy Does "This is the first time we've done a full 3D design and delivery process on any of our Audio-Animatronic figures," said Ethan Reed of Walt Disney Imagineering, which went back to the source material, Walt Disney's first full-length animated feature, 1937's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, for inspiration. "There's so much new technology out there, we can really make these characters look like they jumped off the screen," Reed said.

Tap the Mickey. The bands are programmable with all your preferences, such as what restaurants you might be going to, what rides you want to check out on which days, and which parks youll be visiting. You can do the programming yourself online, or the concierge at the resort can do it for you. During a recent trip to Disney World, my family and I did a test run on the new bands, and can report they worked 100% as advertised: We had no glitches, with either the programming or using them in the parks and hotels. The water park Blizzard Beach has an alpine setting. Theyre used by the Disney staffers too. For instance, when you enter the pool area of a hotel, the guy who gives you towels might wave a hand sensor over your band to make sure youre really a guest. Thats better than having to remember to bring your key down each time. Of course, with every move registered, some might find it all vaguely Orwellian or chalk it up to Disney simply finding more methods of lightening your wallet. But its fun as well as efficient.

US Marines singing Frozen Residents choose from three different types of homes: a Tuscan-styleVillage Homeon a quarter acre near the Clubhouse; anEstate Homeon half an acre (offered in styles including French Country, Southern Classical and Dutch Colonial); and a Grand Estate Home on three-quarters of an acre, designed for large families or corporate use. Residents work with the builder to design their homes, keeping in mind the strict indoor and outdoor architectural guidelines that have been put in place to maintain the Disney integrity. (All front doors must be made of wood, for example, and no matter how much you beg, there will be no 15-foot statues of Goofy in the front yard.) While the entry point of $1.8 million is enough to dissuade most, fees don't stop there. After purchasing a home, residents pay $25,000 a year for maintenance, which covers the homeowners association fee and includes access to the 17,000-square-foot Golden Oak at Walt Disney World Summerhouse clubhouse. Summerhouse features Markham's restaurant and Tyler's lounge, a gym, a heated outdoor pool and a family room with game area, and it employs the top, hand-selected "cast members" from the Disney family. To ensure the home-within-a-hotel feel, Summerhouse also offers Disney Golden Oak residents a concierge to book tickets to the parks, schedule VIP tours, help plan dinners and parties, create Disney holiday decor, provide private transportation to any destination within Walt Disney World and to make spa appointments and tee-times. Theyll even arrange baby-sitting. If you're living at Disney World, you're obviously a fan, so each Disney Golden Oak resident gets five complimentary Golden Oak resident will receive five three-year annual passes, and each pass comes with five additional one-day theme park tickets. The homes themselves are stunning and stunningly large featuring open kitchens, sweeping indoor and outdoor spaces, pools, guesthouses with separate entrances and at least five bedrooms and five-and-a-half bathrooms. Residents have the option of decorating their homes with the famous "hidden Mickeys" tiny mouse ears emblazoned everywhere from wallpaper to ceilings to stair railings.
