An all new ride is coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios featuring Mickey, Minnie, and Goofy! Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway will be a unique mix of ride and animation. It will mix the animation style of a Mickey Mouse Cartoon, and the unusual ride style where things will transform right before your eyes.
The new ride will feature more hidden Mickey’s than any other ride in history, and will be a crazy twist on a classic Disney cartoon. You’ll literally step into the screen and go on a special adventure.
“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.”
The new ride will have it’s own theme song, and will be in 2 1/2D…which means 3D without the glasses.
Sadly, this means that The Great Movie Ride will close to make way for the new attraction. The Great Movie ride will be closed on August 13th. The new ride will still use the same Chinese theater facade, so that classic icon will not be going anywhere anytime soon.
We’ll have tons more from Disney D23 in the coming days, so stay tuned!
