Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway – Disney’s Hollywood Studios
Opening for Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway has been rescheduled to Spring 2020.
A new attraction featuring international icon Mickey Mouse is coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World. Details for the first Mickey-themed ride-through attraction, Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, were unveiled during the Walt Disney Parks and Resorts presentation at D23 Expo 2017. The attraction is slated to open in Spring 2020.
On Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, you’ll step through the movie screen and join Mickey and his friends like never before. The attraction will put you inside the wacky and unpredictable world of a Mickey Mouse Cartoon Short where you’re the star and anything can happen. This zany out-of-control adventure features surprising twists and turns, dazzling visual effects and mind-boggling transformations that happen before your very eyes.
The attraction is inspired by the Mickey Shorts that you can see on the Disney Channel.
Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway will feature a new story and a new singable attraction theme song as well as a new experience that’s being called “2 1/2 D.” No glasses required. Walt Disney Imagineer Kevin Rafferty said teams are inventing new technologies that turn the flat world of a colorful cartoon short into a “dimensional display of amazingness.”
At a media event in July 2018, Walt Disney World released some new concept art for Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, below.
You will find lots of Disney Characters at a variety of Meet and Greet locations throughout the Studios. Check your Guide Map for times and locations.
Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway will be housed in the iconic Chinese Theatre, which was formerly home to The Great Movie Ride. This latter attraction closed August 13, 2017, to make way for the new ride.
