It was a Great Movie Ride. But an all new great ride will take guests and put them in an actual Mickey and Minnie cartoon when Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway opens in 2019. The all new ride will take over for The Great Movie Ride, and will feature a new Mickey Mouse Cartoon.
At the D23 Japan Expo, the cars were revealed, which we don’t get a look at yet.
But the story has been revealed. And it’s classic Mickey and Pals.
You’ll start your journey watching the premiere of an all new Mickey Mouse Cartoon. The Chinese Theater will be the perfect place for the premiere. As you watch, Mickey and Minnie will be getting ready for a picnic, when they notice that their car is right next to train…with Goofy as the conductor. You can imagine where things go from there.
The ride will put you into the movie, with a technology that Disney is calling 2 1/2D. The new attraction will not use 3D glasses, and will use real Disney Television animators to bring the new film and ride to life.
The ride will open in 2019, most likely right before Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
