2019 promises to be quite the exciting year for Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The Walt Disney World park will welcome the biggest expansion in its history with the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. And now, Disney has announced another new attraction will entertain the masses - Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway.
Disney recently shared an image for the upcoming attraction, which will completely immerse guests in a cartoon world and feature a new catchy theme song created specifically for the ride.
It all begins when you watch the premiere of a new cartoon short with Mickey and Minnie preparing for a picnic. As the couple heads out to find a spot for their lunch, they drive alongside a train only to find Goofy as the conductor. Suddenly, the entire audience is transported inside the cartoon they are watching and a wild and wacky ride ensues.
Guests will be in a pre-show theater for the cartoon portion of the attraction. The screen will ultimately open up and guests will then walk through it to the load area where they will board Goofy’s train.
Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway is inspired by the Mickey Shorts on the Disney Channel. Imagineering has partnered with Disney Television Animation to help bring the cartoon to life.
The attraction replaces The Great Movie Ride in Grumman’s Chinese Theatre.
Stay tuned for more details on Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway including its official opening date. While you wait make sure to check out the newly opened Toy Story Land with discounted Disney World tickets here on Orlando Fun Tickets.
