Many of us are still a bit salty that Disney retired ‘The Great Movie Ride” on August 13, 2017. They didn’t give much notice for people to enjoy it one last time either, announcing it at D23 2017 in July and closing it quickly after.

Replacing “The Great Movie Ride” is ‘Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway’ and don’t get me wrong, it’s cute, but it’s not “The Great Movie Ride.”

Here comes some heroes to “bring back” the popular attraction in their own way. Previous ‘Great Movie Ride’ Cast Members have taken the time to recreate the ride with both the bandit and gangster versions and it’s hilariously fantastic. They even recreated the movie reels you watched in the queue!

Once A Movie Rider on YouTube posted the videos.

It’s a fun reminder of what are now missing. I really appreciate all the love and work that they put into it!  Great job!

Disney has been a big part of my life for years--from family trips to WDW to growing up on Disney classics, TV, and movies. Prior to Pirates and Princesses I successfully ran social media and websites since 2010. I've also been a public speaker and presenter since 2007. I'm the co-host for the YouTube channel Clownfish TV as well as the podcast/ Youtube Pirates and Princesses (PNP) channel. Former contributor, online personality and acting social media manager at The Kingdom Insider (which we built from the ground up and ran from 1997-2019 --Thom didn't quit FYI) Pirates and Princesses was started by my husband and I several years ago. We loved Disney and wanted to honestly cover all aspects from pop-culture to the parks from a consumer focused stance. Living OUR happily ever after getting to do what we love with our two kids! Creating fun content and building new things. Certified art teacher, and mom. Opinions are all mine.
