WATCH: Disneyland transforms Snow White’s Enchanted Wish

Heigh Ho! Disney gives viewers a sneak peek at new Snow White dark ride




The ride features a dancing Snow White and new story elements

Disney has shared a first look at the reimagined Snow White’s Enchanted Wish dark ride at Disneyland in California, US.

With COVID-19 restrictions keeping the park closed for an extended period, Disney’s Imagineers took the opportunity to revamp the ride, which is one of the few remaining attractions that was in operation on the park’s opening day in 1955.

“While Disneyland Park has been closed, Walt Disney Imagineering has been putting the finishing touches on this cherished attraction, which will be ready to welcome guests when we reopen our theme parks at a later date,” said Disney.

The video, shared on the Disney Parks YouTube channel, takes viewers inside the ride’s transformation, which as well as a name change, includes updated audio and visual technology and a new animation system, as well as laser projection, LED black-lighting and smell effects.

The reimagined attraction, formerly known as Snow White’s Scary Adventures, also features a dancing Snow White animatronic, while vibrant projections bring the seven dwarves’ and their mine to life.

“We had a chance to really throw in a lot of spectacular magic in one scene in particular, and that is the dwarves’ mine,” said John Gritz, principal concept designer at Walt Disney Imagineering.

“There are beautiful jewels everywhere and you can see the dwarves actually at work.”

Kim Irvine, executive creative director at Walt Disney’s Imagineering, said: “We’re positive that guests are going to be absolutely blown away by this dazzling new attraction.”
