Disney just announced that earlier today, Ride Engineers at Walt Disney Imagineering marked a milestone in the construction of Seven Dwarfs Mine Train in New Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom Park. Last week, the team completed the car’s first push/pull test, and today marked the first time the train ran under its own gravity and completed its first drop out of the station. Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is set to debut sometime in 2014. Any issues or problems resulting from this initial test were not disclosed.
