Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway opening March 2020 at Walt Disney World
In addition to unveiling a new extension to the Star Wars area at Florida’s Walt Disney World Resort, the House of Mouse has announced a new addition coming to the Sunshine State’s park: Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, which will open on March 4, 2020 (via Disney)! You can check out the full artist concept rendering and additional photos in the gallery below!
The ride is described as a “family-friendly dark ride that offers a zany, out-of-control adventure with unpredictable twists and turns, visual effects and transformations that happen during the scenes.” Parkgoers will step through the movie screen and join Mickey and other Disney friends on a railway adventure as they take part in the world of a Mickey Mouse cartoon short.
Based on the recent award-winning Mickey Mouse cartoon shorts, the attraction will use a mix of screens and audio-animatronics alongside a pioneering technology that Imagineering is calling “2 1/2 D” to bring various scenes involving Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, and other Walt Disney friends to life.
Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway will first open at Disney’s Hollywood Studios beginning on March 4, 2020, with plans to clone the attraction at Toontown in California’s Disneyland currently set to open in 2022!
