The Seven Dwarfs claim that they are working all day, but they spend a great deal of time having fun riding their mine train roller coaster through the diamond mines. This plush toy depicting the Dwarfs goofing off on the job was sold exclusively through The Disney Catalog in 1997.
In a few years, folks will be able to take a ride on the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train roller coaster themselves, which will be part of an expanded Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World in Florida. This won't be another Space Mountain by any means, but it'll be a mine train with diamond-filled caverns and animated Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, so I'm sold.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs have been a big part of Walt Disney World since it opened in 1971. The "Snow White's Scary Adventures" dark ride has been in Florida's Magic Kingdom since opening day and was updated in 1994. The arrival of the new Mine Train experience brings the closure of this classic attraction.
All Seven Dwarfs have been popular theme park souvenirs.
These plush toys were sold at Disneyland, Walt Disney World and the Disney Stores in the early 1990s.
Mirror, Mirror on the Wall. What's one of the rarest Snow White collectibles of all? It could be the characters in this set from 1994, which are reminiscent of the figures in the Snow White's Scary Adventures attraction. The Original Edition of this series was 2,500 pieces, and the Finale Edition was a total of 50 sets (25 for the Disney Store and 25 for the Disney Catalog!).
This sold for $3,500! That's a big chunk of change. You'd better get to work and make some more money.
Look like a million bucks (in diamonds) for that big business meeting with a Seven Dwarfs diamond mine tie.
I bet that scarf would work as a handkerchief. Just don't let Sneezy use it.
Don't forget to put on a clean pair of underwear!
The family jewels are safe and covered with Seven Dwarfs silk boxers.
The Seven Dwarfs are here to help make your workplace more efficient.
The Dwarfs have some experience with mice, but they are typically the cheese-eating ones.
Your workday will go by quickly if you whistle while you work. Hopefully your boss won't mind.
Then again, if your boss lets you keep these office supplies on your desk, your boss isn't too strict.
Time for a break! How about a spot of tea?
Those industrious Dwarfs keep working while you take five. Except for Sleepy.
You're not supposed to watch the clock at work, but it's tempting with this one, which was an add-on to the Seven Dwarfs Desk Set.
Before you know it, it'll be time to march yourself home.
Snow White and her forest friends prepare delicious suppers.
Don't worry, the dishes and utensils are clean. The animals licked them really well.
The Dwarfs enjoy spicing things up at meal times.
You're guaranteed dinner and a show when you dine at the cottage with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
Snow White has prepared some tasty treats for dessert.
No, she did not make any apple tarts. She's not a fan of anything related to apples anymore.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs are stuffed!
Snow White has a rabbit in her pocket and she's happy to see us.*
*Classic "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" reference.
It's time to go to sleep now. Snow White always wears Seven Dwarfs pajamas to bed.
Snow also has a Grumpy robe. She wears this all the time, only because Grumpy gave it to her as a gift (but don't tell him that).
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs have had a busy day.
For Sleepy, Bedtime is a special event. He really gets dressed up for the occasion.
Sleepy thinks this look is really cool and he's trying to pitch himself to be the new mascot for Ambien.
In the morning, it's back to the diamond mines once again for the Dwarfs. Considering the fact that they have a Mine Train Coaster to ride there, that's not a bad thing.
