New Technology: 3D Animatronics

The ride is said to be one-of-its-kind! Disney is famous for their use of new technology. In the Disney’s Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Disney has incorporated 3D animatronics. According to Walt Disney Imagineering, it’s all about recreating Disney’s characters from scratch! The process of using 3D Animatronics involve studying the individual motions as well as facial expressions of each Dwarf, and then making them look just like real Dwarfs coming out from the Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs story. 

Though 3D Animatronics seem quite similar to Animation, there is a clear difference between the two terms: 3D Animatronics will enable you to see real, physical objects. However, animation mostly involves the representation of real, physical objects in the 2D and 3D animation only. Robert Niles from Theme Park Insider comments on the use of this advanced technology by saying, "It's a "new look" because the Dwarfs on the Mine Train won't be the purely practical animatronics we've seen until now on so many Disney theme park attractions, with sculpted features driven by mechanical processes. On the Mine Train, the Dwarf animatronics will blend mechanical features with 3D computer animation, apparently projected upon the mechanical animatronics themselves. This is why the Disney fans have waited longer for this most amazing ride!  

 

Other Important Ride Features 

Disney’s Seven Dwarfs Mine Train Ride also includes a meeting with all the characters of Snow White and the seven Dwarfs just as it plunges into the forest, bringing the fairytale to life and making one of these vacation ideas worthwhile. The ride takes you through a mine which reveals to its audiences a beautiful view of diamonds, emeralds and other gems. The riders will be engaged in the adventurous tasks of jewel sorting and washing. Once you enter the vault, it gets even more amazing and turning barrels transforms the ceiling above! And the fun doesn’t even end there. You can find out a lot more about this extraordinarily incredible ride.
