Saying Goodbye to Snow White

The Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World has announced that the final trips into Snow White's Scary Adventures will take place on May 31st, 2012.  The closure was previously disclosed, but without a solid date.  The attraction is being retired to make way for an indoor meet-and-greet for the Disney Princesses.

Snow White's Scary Adventures opened with the park in October, 1971, and originally took guests through Snow White's story as if they were the character.  In 1994 the ride underwent some major chances to clarify the point of view, but remained one of the darker rides that could be found at the Magic Kingdom.

If you haven't had the chance to experience the attraction, here is a video:

The date for the ride's demise also comes with confirmation that the first new section of New Fantasyland, to be called Storybook Circus, will open in late March.

One half of the new double Dumbo attractions, the Great Goofini and the Fantasyland Railroad station will open at that time.  More of Storybook Circus will open later this year.
