The Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop ~ 4 Favorite Weenies ~

It's so good to be back on my favorite day of the week! I had a magical solo trip and can't wait to share all the pictures and fabulous experiences with you.
Let's get hopping! The Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop here at Focused on the Magic.com is where we gather each week with fellow Disney travelers to link up and share our #DisneySide Wordless Wednesday Disney vacation posts.

There is a theme each week which you can follow if you'd like.
This week's theme is
 ~Weenies ~
You may be wondering what a Disney Weenie is. It's not someone who takes the chicken exit on Dinosaur as I've done a few times and as recently as last week. Although that would certainly fit one description.
A Weenie is what Walt Disney and his Imagineers called the iconic structures or focal points in each of the Disney Parks. They were created to be big enough to be seen from a distance and interesting enough to draw you closer for a better look.
Below are a few examples that my family enjoys seeing and experiencing each and every trip.

I know many of you are thinking that The Sorcerer's Hat shouldn't be included but if you think about it the description of a "Weenie" fits perfectly. You can spot from as far away as the Boardwalk and probably space it's so huge. It's certainly interesting and for me a fun photo to snap. The Sorcerer's Hat draws me in each time with the searchlights radiating out, the stars twinkling and a hint of Grauman's Chinese Theatre below. I think it looks magical at night.

Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, the crowning jewel of New Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom, will officially open to Walt Disney World guests on May 28, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Tom Staggs announced at a media preview of the attraction.

Staggs made the announcement during a dedication of the attraction, which completes New Fantasyland, the largest expansion in the history of the Magic Kingdom.

Staggs was joined at Friday’s dedication by Snow White and all Seven Dwarfs who proudly brought their freshly-mined gems: buckets of glowing diamonds and jewels and wheelbarrows stacked with oversized rubies, emeralds and sapphires.

Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is a rocking, rollicking family-style coaster that will immerse Magic Kingdom guests in the lovable world of Sleepy, Doc, Grumpy, Bashful, Sneezy, Happy and Dopey. Inspired by the Disney animated film classic “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” the attraction will send riders on a playful musical adventure into the mine “where a million diamonds shine.”

The attraction features an innovative new ride system that allows cars to pivot back and forth during the twists, turns, hills and drops of the ride. Riders pass through magical mountain scenery studded with red poppies and live oak, cedar and birch trees. At the midpoint of the attraction, guests enter a mine aglow with gems and scenes of the Dwarfs and frolicking forest creatures. Music from the film classic accompanies the journey. At ride’s end, the cottage of the Dwarfs, replicated from the film to exacting detail by Walt Disney Imagineers, comes into view with a dancing Snow White visible through a window.

“Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is both literally and figuratively the centerpiece of New Fantasyland, so we knew it had to be something special,” Tom said.“The attraction appeals to everyone in the family and provides just the right blend of heart, humor, and thrill while keeping with the charm of this special land.” “It’s my honor to dedicate the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, which we think will become an instant classic in New Fantasyland,” said Staggs.

Hop aboard for the full ride-through...
