Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway will be opening in Disney’s Hollywood Studios in 2019, as announced today at D23 Expo Japan. Occupying the form Great Movie Ride location in the Chinese Theater, this new attraction will take us deep into a Mickey and Minnie animated short.
As explained today on the Disney Parks Blog…..
Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts, announced the opening year and showed how we’re pulling out all of the stops to make Mickey’s first attraction an unbelievable experience for everyone. Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway will feature a new catchy theme song created especially for the attraction as well as a new experience that defies logic that we’re calling 2 ½-D. No glasses required.
On the attraction, the fun begins when Guests see the premiere of a new cartoon short with Mickey and Minnie getting ready for a picnic. As they head out, they drive alongside a train and find out that the engineer is Goofy. Then, one magical moment lets youstep into the movie and on Goofy’s train for a wacky, wild ride.
Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway will put you inside the wacky and unpredictable world of a Mickey Mouse Cartoon Short where they’re the star and anything can happen. And for the first time, we shared a preview of what the cars will look like when Guests board the attraction for a zany, out-of-control adventure filled with surprising twists and turns.
The teams helping create the attraction are currently working with partners at Disney Television Animation—the people who create the popular and award-winning Mickey Shorts – to keep the characters and story authentic and to make sure you’re able to step through the movie screen and join Mickey and his friends like never before.
While we do know that it will open in 2019, we don’t have an exact date yet, so stay with us for more information.
Add this to the already announced Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge coming in 2019, and Toy Story Land later this year, this park will be a whole new experience for the entire family.
