Cast Member Training and Testing Happening at Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway


We are only about seven weeks out from the opening of Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Yesterday Josh D’Amaro, President of the Walt Disney World Resort, posted some pictures of the queue and cast member training!


We can see the queue/loading area in these photos.

It reminds me of Seven Dwarfs Mine Train or Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, which makes sense as it’s a train ride.

Thinking the “wood grain” could be black-light reflective or something like that. I know the train seems to be.

It isn’t much but at least it’s something to go on for now! Really excited to check it out, but my kids are currently having a long discussion, in the other room, about how much they loved The Great Movie Ride and how they hope this one comes close. My son is arguing that Disney usually makes great rides so he is willing to wait and see.

Now they are discussing how the Malestrom changed and they preferred it to the new Frozen Ever After overlay.  My kids are total Disney-heads. So much for the notion that things need to be changed to keep kids interested.

All that aside, I am more than willing to give Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway a chance! I can’t wait to give it a try!

Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway opens on March 4, 2020!
