Dad on Disney – MK’s 7 Dwarfs Mine Train

Great for kids. Nick’s daughter is 5 and loves it but is also a thrill seeker.

“I’m still not sure about these media enhanced AAs.”

It’s a popular ride. Ride early or get a fastpass.

“I think it’s one of the best interactive queues on property.”

Try to find the hidden vault key.

Not the most comfortable ride for guys. You might want to ‘adjust’ before sitting down.
