First Mickey-Themed Ride-Through Attraction, Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, Coming Soon



A new attraction featuring our favorite mouse, Mickey, is coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios! Details for the first Mickey-themed ride-through attraction, Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, were just unveiled during the Walt Disney Parks and Resorts presentation at D23 Expo 2017.


On Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, you will join Mickey and his friends inside the world of a Mickey Mouse Cartoon Short where anything can happen. This ride features "surprising twists and turns, dazzling visual effects and mind-boggling transformations that happen before your very eyes."

Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway will feature a new story and a new singable attraction theme song as well as a new experience Disney is calling “2 1/2 D,” which will not require special glasses. 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.”


“This is one of the boldest…most impossible things I’ve ever worked on in almost 40 years of being an Imagineer. And you know what? That’s what I love about it. Well, that, and Mickey,” Kevin said. “This is not going to be a small attraction, it’s going to be game-changing.”


In order to build the new attraction the existing Chinese Theatre in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, will need to be modified, therefore, August 13, 2017 will be the final day of operation for The Great Movie Ride.
