Snow White's Scary Adventure to Close

Pin It

Fastpass: No
Ride Duration: 2 mins 50 seconds
Year Introduced: October 1971 (Updated to be less scary in 1994)
Closing Date:  May 31, 2012

   Today Disney announced that Snow White's Scary Adventure will be closing at the Magic Kingdom (Disney World) on May 31, 2012.   This will make way for a new Princess Fairytale Hall, a meet and greet for Disney Princesses.    

      This iconic ride took the guest through the 1937 classic animated movie Snow White.   Though the ride itself was dated, it was an original from the opening of the park and was on our family’s ride list each trip. 

   After May 31st, those of you still wanting your Snow White fix will have to wait until this porition of the new Fantasyland area opens sometime in 2013. Here you will get to experience the Dwarf’s cottage and the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. 

    The fans of Snow White's Scary Adventure seem to be more disappointed about what the replacement is rather than seeing the ride close.   In a discussion today on twitter there seemed to be some disgust in the replacement as meet and greets seems to be eating up more space in the parks.   Remember the good old days when characters just roamed the park and you could walk right up to them without waiting in a line?
So, goodbye Snow White’s Scary Adventure you will be missed and welcome to Princess Fairytale Hall.  Let us know what you think!   Are meet and greets eating up too much park real estate?   What will you miss about Snow White's Scary Adventure?

  1. How sad! It is funny because I remember when my son was little, this ride scared him more than any other. lol. Even the rollar coasters. Meet and greets don't bother me so much, but what does is that they seem to keep converting character restaurants into non. That's what annoys me more than anything.
