Rumor: Possible Opening Month for ‘Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway’


We’ve all been wondering what’s been going on with the upcoming new Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway attraction coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

This new attraction is replacing The Great Movie Ride inside the Chinese Theater at the center of the park.

A lot of people thought it would open around the time of Hollywood Studio’s 30th Anniversary, but then Disney announced that it would be Spring of 2020.

The folks over at WDW News Today have posted that they now believe it will be February 2020.

“While “Spring 2020” could mean a myriad of things, the targeted opening date is now a tad earlier and set for February 2020 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. That means we’ll get to start the year off right… or at least at this point, I’d be content just setting foot inside the Chinese Theatre.”

Of course this has not been confirmed by Disney, but it’s an interesting rumor I wanted to share.

For those of you on the other coast waiting for the Disneyland version of Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, the current date is simply “2022.” Maybe we will get more concrete announcements on these at D23 this year.

Until then, here’s a look at some of the reveals made around the 30th Anniversary for you to check out!

They will be using the original whistle from the cartoon Steamboat Willie as the sound for the train in the upcoming new attraction.

The Original ‘Steamboat Willie’ Whistle will be used as the train sound in the upcoming ‘Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway’ attraction.

There will probably be black-lights used in this ride as the train seems to be black-light reflective.
