It was a bittersweet ending to one of the original attractions at Walt Disney World that opened with the park in 1971. On Thursday, May 31st, 2012 The Scary Adventures of Snow White closed to the public. The ride was based off of the Walt Disney classic animated film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The ride closed it’s doors at the end of park hours on Thursday, and will be dismantled to make room for a brand new Fantasyland Expansion.
While the ride is considered a classic by many, it was considered very out of date. The attraction used black lights and static figures that just stood there. A far cry from the technological advances that Disney has developed since 1971. Still, with all the new animatronics, 3D and Pixar characters of today’s Disney attractions Snow White’s Scary Adventures still had a certain bit of charm.
Fans of the fairest of them all, the one with lips as red as a rose and skin as white as snow shouldn’t worry. Disney is working diligently to bring an all new version of the attraction to life.
Snow White, and the Seven Dwarfs will inhabit an all new mine train coaster that will employ a lot of the new old static figures. The coaster is currently under construction and will open in 2014 as the final brick in the New Fantasyland.
