my daughter several times over.  It was always funny to watch her cringe in certain scenes of the ride, 0423ZW_1581MS-640x426just like I used to.  Now I can’t wait for both of us to experience the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train for the first time together.  She is my Disney partner in crime and with so many Disney visits under my travel belt, there isn’t much I haven’t experienced within the resort.  THIS first-time experience for us will be epic and we can’t wait to see these fun-loving, silly guys at work!
