Disney has just released some fun news today! We now have new Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway concept art and more details to share. This new attraction coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be the first attraction based on our favorite mice where guests will step through the movie screen.
Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway is based on Mickey Mouse cartoon shorts aired on the Disney Channel. Disney let us know that this attraction will literally put guests inside that cartoon world with Mickey and Minnie. You can expect the unexpected as no rules apply and where anything can happen and anything does.
We also got a peek at the 2-foot long physical miniature train car model that will be apart of the attraction. “With Goofy as your train engineer what could possibly go wrong?”
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.
Disney has announced that Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway will make its grand debut in 2019.
