Welcome back to our Sunday Snippet series! This week, we will talk about the news surrounding Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway. Hot diggity dog!
This attraction is the first to feature the Big Cheese himself! Guests will embark on a 2 1/2 D experience. No special glasses needed! A train driven by Goofy will bring you into the zany world of Mickey Mouse. The animation will be similar in style to the cartoon series on the Disney Channel. This attraction will feature state-of-the-art technology to make the technicolor animated world appear multi-dimensional!
Not much was said about the ride when it was first mentioned at D23 in 2017. However, Disney just released 2 very important pieces of information:
1. Disney World Debut
Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway will open in Spring 2020 at Hollywood Studios. Originally, it seemed like the attraction would debut around the same time as Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. However, this new timeframe puts the attraction’s opening well after the Star Wars premiere. This later date is great as Runaway Railway will not have to compete for the spotlight. Mickey’s first feature ride will get the love it deserves!
2. Attraction Slated for Disneyland
Disney also announced that the attraction is coming to The Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, CA. The Runaway Railway will take up residence in Mickey’s Toontown area of the Disneyland theme park. Unfortunately, Disney has yet to say which Toontown attraction it will be replace. Guests can expect to experience the ride in 2022.
Oh, boy! I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend 🙂
