The Great Movie Ride To Be Replaced With "Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway"

A brand new attraction is coming called “Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway” to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. It will be the first attraction based on our favorite mice where guests will step through the movie screen. It looks to be a dark ride that will in fact replace The Great Movie Ride!

This ride will be state of the art and include an original theme song. Guests will get to ride inside a cartoon short, inspired by those on the Disney Channel, with Mickey and Minnie helping you along on your adventure.

The ride experience is being called “2 1/2 D”, which means no glasses are required. 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.”

Disney animators will be in charge of the style of the Mickey and Minnie themed attraction and will include more hidden Mickey’s than any other ride.

In order to bring this ride to life The Great Movie Ride at the Chinese Theatre in Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be closing on August 14, 2017.

Are you excited to see this new ride? Sad to see The Great Movie Ride go? Or a little bit of both?
