A lot has been said about the two new lands at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and for good reason. They should both be amazing. Toy Story Land will opened on June 30, 2018, while Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is officially listed as “opening late fall 2019”. There is another attraction that is on the way to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and while it has received some buzz it hasn’t been the same as the anticipation over the two new lands. That new ride will be called Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway. Here is what we know so far.
Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway is slated to open sometime in 2019. The time frame has not been narrowed down more than that. It is going to be the first ride at any Disney Park across the planet that features the famous mouse couple, and it’s about time that they get their own attraction. Disney says that the ride will be “2 1/2 D”. That hasn’t really been explained either, but we have been told that no special glasses will be required.
The ride will start with a short cartoon in which Mickey and Minnie are getting ready for a picnic. As they head out they will end up driving next to a train, and it’s engineer is Goofy. Guests will then be transported into the movie and onto the train. You will be meant to feel like you have entered a cartoon.
Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway replaces The Great Movie Ride, which was the last opening day attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. That ride lasted approximately 22 minutes, but there is no word on whether or not the new experience will be nearly as long. Keep checking here, because I’ll keep you up to date on any news that I might learn about Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway. As much as I miss The Great Movie Ride, I think this is going to be a great new addition to Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
