Recently, cast members from Disney’s Hollywood Studios were treated to a surprise sneak peek of the progress underway at the Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway attraction – by none other than Disney Parks, Experiences & Products Chairman Bob Chapek himself!  

The attraction, which will open at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in spring 2020, will put guests inside the unpredictable world of Disney Channel’s Emmy® Award-winning “Mickey Mouse” cartoon shorts. Once they step into the cartoon world of Mickey and Minnie, they’ll board a train with Goofy as the engineer. Then, one magical moment after the next leads to an out-of-control adventure filled with surprising twists and turns. The attraction will use an original story, lovable theme song, state-of-the-art technologies and dazzling visual effects to create an unforgettable multidimensional experience.

Check out the video above for a look at the cast members’ fun surprise moment.

  • Barbara, it IS the real mouse. And this “new” Mickey is an amazing Mickey to boot and perfect for the new ride.

  • I am so excited for this new ride. I always wait a month or two to visit a new ride but I am going to plan a trip to to Disney World for this new Mickey attraction so I can be there in person on opening day,. Thank you Disney for bringing a Mickey ride to Hollywood Studios and reminding everyone how it all started. Excellent !!!!

  • I miss The Great Movie Ride and wish it wasn’t this “new”Mickey. May do it once for the experience, but he’s not the real Mouse.

  • SUPER excited over this!
    Of course we wish The Great Movie Ride hadn’t been taken away, that was an all-time fav of ours, but we are amped over a Minnie & Mickey ride!
