Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway is still under construction that replaced the Great Movie Ride last year and the Imagineers have been hard at work for this first ever Mickey attraction using groundbreaking technology. This attraction will put the guests through the screen into a two-dimensional cartoon into a real-world immersive environment.
“The first-ever ride-through attraction themed to Mickey Mouse will feature a new original story and lovable theme song as it takes guests on a journey inside the wacky and unpredictable world of Disney Channel’s Emmy Award-winning “Mickey Mouse” cartoon shorts.”
Chapek didn’t confirm an opening date but, did say that construction is expected to be completed in Fall 2019 or hopefully before the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge for Late Fall 2019.
