Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway Opens at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

-

Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse hosted a spectacular gala premiere Tuesday night in honor of their new attraction, Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, opening today (Wednesday, March 4) to the public at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida.

Flanked by their Disney pals – including Walt Disney World Resort President Josh D’Amaro – Mickey and Minnie welcomed guests to a musical celebration nearly a century in the making, punctuated by fireworks, dancing and, most of all… fun.

Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway

Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway is the first ride-through attraction in a Disney park dedicated to Mickey and Minnie. In this bold and innovative new family adventure, guests burst through a movie screen and into the whimsical world of Disney Television Animation’s Emmy Award-winning Mickey Mouse cartoon shorts, where “mouse rules apply” and anything can — and does — happen!

The ride is officially described as follows: “The darling duo are taking a leisurely drive to a picnic in their sporty roadster – with Engineer Goofy’s train following merrily along. Plot twist – you get to go, too! Climb aboard a runaway railway and embark on a whirlwind ride through a world where the rules of physics don’t apply.

“Prepare for unexpected twists, slapstick gags and mind-boggling transformations at every turn, as Mickey and Minnie try to save the day.

“There’s no telling where this train is heading! This is an adventure for Mickey and Minnie fans of all ages.”

With an original Mickey Mouse story by Walt Disney Imagineering featuring the new song “Nothing Can Stop Us Now,” Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway is a celebration of Disney heritage and a showcase for state-of-the-art storytelling and attraction design.

“Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway is a crowning achievement in the multiyear transformation of Disney’s Hollywood Studios,” D’Amaro said. “What was once a theme park that took you behind the scenes, now puts you in the center of your favorite stories.”

Over the past several years, Disney’s Hollywood Studios has evolved into a park that envelops guests in immersive experiences. Guests can now explore a new planet in the Star Wars galaxy, play like a toy with Woody and Buzz Lightyear, learn how to be a champion racer from Lightning McQueen, and much more.
