Filming for a new Disney commercial took place today on the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, with extras being the first riders on the new attraction.
Extras with bright clothing were brought in to act as riders while Disney set up camera on and around the Mine Train mountain to film their rides for a new video advertisement. Many takes were done throughout the morning, even with two camera attached to the ride vehicles.
As the train enters the mountain near Storybook Circus, you can hear the picking of the dwarfs working inside the mine. As the train heads up the second lift hill toward the big drop near Belle’s Village, you can hear the dwarfs singing “Heigh-Ho.”
Taking into consideration the show scene inside the mountain, we estimate the ride time from start to finish to be a little over two minutes. The cars doesn’t seem to be swinging a lot, but it could feel greater while riding.
Soft openings should start for the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train very soon. The dedication for the ride is scheduled to be on May 2, so it may officially open later that day. But no official opening date has been announced.
