50 dwarfs help greet guests at Disneyland preem

Disneyland’s premiere of its new 35-minute stage show “Snow White: An Enchanting New Musical” on Saturday would have been more appropriate for the Little Mermaid or Nemo, given the soggy conditions.

Guests navigated a soapy red carpet to be treated to a parade of 200 Snow White look-alike moppets and 50 dwarfs and a greeting from Mouse House topper Michael Eisner.

Original animators Joe Grant and Frank Thomas were on hand as were the eight Oscars (including seven dwarf-size ones) “Snow White” was awarded in 1939.

Fortunately the after-party — featuring plenty of non-poisonous apple dishes — was moved from outdoor Toontown to indoor Tomorrowland.
