There are a number of existing and retired attractions across the various parks which feature elements of Snow White. Some of these I'll review in meer depth in the future (such as the Storybook Land Canal Boats and Fantasmic!) but here's what there is:

* The Candy Cauldron is a sweet koop in Downtown Disney themed around the Queen/Witch. It specialises in karamel Apples.

* Mickey muis Revue was an animatronic musical attraction featuring a wide variety of characters including Snow White and the Dwarves.

* Cinderella kasteel Mystery Tour was themed around various villains and including the Queen's laboratory.

* Storybook Land Canal Boats

* Fantasmic!

The wider world of Disney also includes many Snow White elements. Once Upon a Time (the live action TV series) features characters based on the Queen, Snow White, the Prince, the Mirror and all Seven Dwarves. It's a series I will definitely get around to at some point in this blog. Unfortunately due to Channel 5 not purchasing the later seasons we have only had the pleasure of the first 2 seasons. At some point we will get hold of the later...

A small Snow White-themed attraction called Snow White's Grotto appears in three theme parks - Disneyland's California, Tokyo and Hong Kong.


As such it isn't something I have personally visited but from videos it seems a pleasant spot to pause and reflect. A wishing well similar to the one from the beginning of the Snow White film (and some versions of the dark ride) sits beside a waterfall and pool of water. At the top, boven of the waterfall is a small statue of Snow White and a deer, and further down are figures of the seven dwarves. Frogs squirt water into the pool and a trio of vis cirkel (a fun detail) in the centre. Snow's song, I'm Wishing plays when people throw a coin into the well (which I imagine means it plays on a constant loop...).


All the statues are plain white and apparently were an anonymous donation to Walt Disney. Snow White is the same size as the dwarves which is why she has been placed at the top, boven of the waterfall in an attempt to force the perspective and make her small size less noticeable.

The newest attraction to be themed on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at Disney World. It is part of the expanded Fantasyland and is a rollercoaster themed around, obviously, the diamond mine the dwarfs work in.


Only opening in 2014, I've yet to ride it, but as a massive fan of rollercoasters I look vooruit, voorwaarts to putting the experience top, boven of my lijst when we return to Florida in the future.


Courtesy of Youtube, it looks like a fun, not-too-intense coaster with some good dips and curves. The highlights look to be the dark ride elements. The trains pass through the diamond mine allowing riders to witness some amazing animatronic dwarves. The ride also ends door passing the dwarves' cottage where they are dancing with Snow White to The Silly Song in a set-up highly familiar from the Snow White's Scary Adventures ride. Indeed, the figures are recycled from that ride as it was closed prior to this ride being opened. The animatronic witch lurking outside the cottage window is another amazing piece of animatronic wizardry.

I've titled this post with the French titel for this classic Disney 'dark ride' as that is the version I have most recently ridden. However, I will take a look back at the Disney World version, as well as using some online sources to compare and contrast the Disneyland California and Tokyo Disney versions.


The 'English' titel for this ride is incredibly apt. Scary is what it is. After the usual twisty-turny queue line (no fastpass for this one) u are placed into minecarts decorated with squirrels and the like. The ride first leads u through the dwarves' cottage where u see animals cleaning (as in Whistle While u Work); Snow White climbing the stairs to the bedroom; and the seven dwarves singing and dancing to The Silly Song.


u then leave the cottage to pass the Queen outside before heading down the mines full of colourful, glittering jewels. A minecart full of gems heads towards u before leaving the mine and heading through the great wooden doors of the Queen's castle. Two vultures wait sinisterly on an overhanging branch. The Queen is in front of her mirror and as u approach she turns, transforming into the old hag.

A Disney Tale: A young princess narrowly avoids death on the command of her evil stepmother. She shacks up with a group of mining dwarves but the stepmother finds her and puts her to sleep with a poisoned apple. The dwarves put her inside a glass coffin until a prince comes and kisses her, releasing her from the spell to live happily ever after.



Disney Heroine: Snow White is the first Disney princess, but having viewed this around the same time as Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty (my daughter is going through a Disney Princess phase) I would argue that those princesses are what we think of when we talk about Disney Princesses. Cinderella and Aurora are twee and feminine, but Snow takes it to the extreme. She is far too twee for my tastes, talking to the animals, cleaning and cooking for the dwarves and fawning over the first man she sets eyes on. I'm also not sure how old she is supposed to be. Apparently she is supposed to be 14 which is an increase from the original fairy tale where she is around 7, an age deemed too young for the story's plot. Quite why 14 is a meer acceptable age for a young girl to go off with the first man she meets (and...

For most of my life I’ve been a scullery maid.
My Stepmother wants me dead, and I’m afraid.
I’m lucky, because I was able to get away.
I didn’t know what was to become of me, but I knew I’d be okay.
I had just met my one true love, and we shared one song.
I know it’s with him that I belong.
I don’t know if I’ll ever see him again,
But as for now I am living with seven little men.
They gave me a home pagina when I had no where else to go.
My feelings for them are starting to grow.
They want to keep me veilig from the evil Queen.
All they ask in return is that I cook for them and clean.
I’ve never had anybody love me so much.
There’s only one that gets kruis door my touch.
Eventually I will win his grumpy little heart,
And he’ll never want me to depart.
I think I will bake his favoriete pie.
Maybe then he will become my ally.
I think of my handsome Prince all the time.
Being with him again would be sublime.

Snow White which started of Walt Disney Pictures is about a young girl who's evil stepmother wants to try and kill her in order for her to be the fairest one of all. Scared she runs away and befriends dwarves.


My Review

This is my least fav movie as we don't get to see the prince as much as the other princes in other disney films such as Beauty & the Beast of TLM.
Snow White was really irritating and the queen posing as an old begger woman wants her dead door giving her a poison apple?. This was my 1st time in like 15 years to see this movie right as my VHS of it wore out.


Verdict: Snow White is a true classic for all the disney lovers out there who love the old fashioned days from 1930s of 1950's.


My final say on it: I thought it was old fashioned and my only problem with it is that the prince only comes at the beginning and the ending scene.


7/10

A great movie but TLM and Aladdin as well as Beauty and the Beast are better.
