    Hi Moms! Do you know if there will be a height restriction on the Mine Train? When we visit in July my daughter will be just shy of 3 years old and is about 3 feet tall. It's been called a 'family ride' Not sure if it means the entire family. Thanks!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Maryann ~

    I was beyond thrilled to watch the dedication of the Seven Dwarf's Mine Train today on the Disney Parks Blog. I have been following the progress of this attraction from the beginning and I am so excited to ride it for myself!

    The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train has a minimum height requirement of 38 inches (97 cm). It is considered a family ride but that does not necessarily mean that every member of a family will enjoy it. When you are going through the mine, the lighting is a little dark and that could frighten some smaller children. There are also some small drops along the way. I would put it in the thrill category between The Barnstormer and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.

    FastPass+ is available for this attraction and I would recommend it as the Seven Dwarf's Mine Train is sure to be extremely popular with Guests.

    Please feel free to visit us again with all of your planning questions. We are hEAR for you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
