mine train: when in 2014?

I know the mine train is scheduled to open in 2014 but does anyone know when? I am hoping it will be open by spring break season next year

I am looking forward to taking a ride on this, to bad it isnt going to be open for our next trip. I remember when Test track was suppose to open and it was delayed so many times. Hopefully it will be running when we go, a lot of times we are in line and then it breaks down. Hard when you have the kids who are finally big enough to ride and then it goes down.

I thought I had heard early 2014 but not anything more specific. Of course too, I'm hoping they're way ahead of schedule like the rest of Fantasyland. All of that was slated to open summer of 2013 but it was done something like 8 months early. I have my fingers crossed they're really early for the mine train (like by August when we go - hey I can hope).

I'm so upset that we won't get to ride it on our next trip since the dwarves are one of my favorites!

I couldn't agree more. I haven't heard any dates of when it will be done, but with big new rides, Disney usually have them open for times of peak attendance - i.e. Easter/Christmas etc. so I'm sure they're working to a timescale like that.

I'm pretty sure I'm right when I say that this was supposed to be opening in 2013 with the other remaining bits of Fantasyland, but the date got put back due to issues. We're hoping to be back Christmas 2014, so we figure we should be pretty safe for it being open by then!

Early 2014 is the only thing I've heard too. No specific date or timeframe other than that.

... except I only have to hope it's open for January of 2014.

I agree completely! I was kind of surprised they made such a big deal about the opening of new Fantasyland when they had this big, huge half done mountain of construction plopped right in the middle of it. Not so pretty...

I would imagine that Disney right now probably doesn't know themselves when it will be ready other than "Early 2014", this way they have a bit of a cushion just in case they run into any delays in the build of the ride, especially if they are using a new type of ride vehicle, with those tipping mine cars.

Disney, like other companies, probably loves the mantra "under promise, over deliver", so uses that early 2014 date, which will indicate anything from January to I'd say May, would still technically be early 2014. Missing a deadline makes investors jumpy and can affect stock price, etc, so until they have a better idea of when everything is ready, you won't see official dates out there until they KNOW it's ready.

I'll be there in January 2014 myself, so not expecting it to be open, but I wouldn't be surprised if they might be doing some soft-opening testing that wary. Especially as it is the only major aspect of the new FL expansion that still needs to be worked on, and they have more than a year to hit that "early 2014" target.

Is this going to be a thrill ride or a kids ride?

It's supposed to be a "family friendly" coaster. I doubt it will be too much more extreme than any of the other roller coasters at MK, and probably much smoother than Space Mt given that it's supposed to sway like a mine cart.

According to the 2013 Passporter:
"Coming soon! This new, moderate roller coaster boasts an innovative ride vehicle that pendulum-swings from side to side as you ride the banked curves of the Seven Dwarfs fabled mine. Ride simulations suggest this will be a cross between Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and Splash Mountain. The journey will begin like any tubular-track coaster, up and into the mine. Inside, the track levels out and you pass Audio-Animatronics depicting scenes from Snow White. Then, emerge from the mine to finish up with short drops and fast turns. Accessibility and restrictions unknown at press time, but expect them to be similar to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad "
