Get ready for a 2 ½-D adventure from Disney’s Hollywood Studios! Wait, what? A 2 ½-D experience? Yep. Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway ride puts your kiddos (and you too) in the center of the action—no clunky 3-D glasses required.
Chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts, Bob Chapek, announced the new attraction at the D23 Expo Japan. Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway ride will start with the premiere of a brand-new cartoon short. Of course, it stars none other than the magnificent Mickey and Minnie.
The mouse-riffic pair is getting ready for a day picnic fun as the short starts. They hop into the car, start driving and… catch up to a train that’s driven by none other than Goofy.
That’s where you come in. Step into the magical, mousey world and board Goofy’s train. With twists, turns and oh-so-much adventure, your family gets to step into the animated short. Making Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway ride authentic is a major priority. The attraction-creators are partnering with Disney Television Animation (of makers the award-winning Mickey Shorts) to keep the storyline and characters in-line with the TV show.
So get ready—the new ride is set to open in 2019.
