When you think of Disney, what comes to your mind? Mickey, right? Thus, Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway, an attraction aimed at the cutest couple ever, finally arrives at Disney's Hollywood Studios, at Walt Disney World Resort.
It is a very recent attraction in the park, as it was opened to the public in March 2020. That is, only one year of exhibition at Hollywood Studios.
Another park will also host Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway, which is the Disneyland, California.
However, the opening, which was scheduled for 2022, had to be postponed. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it will only be in 2023 that Californians will be able to enjoy the characters.
Amazingly, it is the first attraction in Disney history that Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse participate and are the protagonists, can you believe it?
Oh, and they're not the only ones on board this unforgettable adventure. You can also see Goofy, Donald Duck and Pluto, can you imagine?
Discovering Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway
Because it is a ride recent in the park, not much is said about this animation that, for sure, will win a little space in the heart of everyone who visits it.
It was inspired, in a way, by a new series of Mickey Mouse animated shorts.
With this, you will be able to see and miss other characters who marked the history of generations. Who doesn't know Mickey and his friends, right?
Well, the plot of this new world of Mickey and Minnie is basically about the couple going on a picnic in their stroller.
Goofy's train, the engineer, in turn, is following them closely. And do you know who is in control? Himself: the Goofy!
But, as always, there are unexpected things along the way. The picnic doesn't go as they planned and now they urgently need to resolve this issue.
This is the moment you will be a part of. You will get on the runaway train and walk around, admiring everything you see on the way.
Fun is the word that will define this path beyond interesting.
Mickey and Minnie, in their sports car, will try to save the day and you will see this unfold from your cabin. Are you ready for this adventure?
With amazing scenarios and quality technology?
It's a very calm ride, which doesn't cause fear, even if it happens a little “blindly”. The attraction was designed for all types of audiences, from children even adults, without anyone being left out. There is no age or minimum height.
Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway is characterized as a “trackless dark ride”.
The cart, thus, is a little loose and can, turn and move, give some “rocking”. And that's not all: you will feel gusts of wind when passing through a certain point.
Like all Disney attractions, this is also one that guarantees accessibility for people with disabilities and those who use a wheelchair, for example.
With that, there's no excuse not to go.
If you need to relax during the intense day at the park, this might be the attraction you are looking for, as it doesn't tire you out.
On the contrary, it's all joy, fun and magic.
Along the way, you will see animatronics, that is, the almost real characters. There are also projections, which will allow you to feel really inserted in the tour, without taking it off or putting it on. In addition, of course, to the hyper-realistic scenarios.
The attraction promises, however, many surprises along the way. It's for the whole family to enjoy.
The hours are varied and it is open to the public from 9 am to 8 pm.
So, choose a moment when you need to “stroke” your emotions and allow yourself to discover this universe that has nothing to do with it.
If necessary, you can use the fastpass +. So, program yourself!
Location in the park
The attraction is located inside the Chinese Theater at Hollywood Studios, where the Great Movie Ride, closed in 2017.
With the launch of Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway, the place has been completely renovated to welcome the new attraction and look like the most beloved animated characters of all.
The theater is right across the street from the park entrance, on Center Stage, and next to Echo Lake. Check out the map below to locate yourself:
And that's it. Finally, remember to always make an itinerary so you can enjoy everything the park has to offer. Have fun magically!
