Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway

Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway will be the first-ever ride-through attraction themed to Mickey and Minnie Mouse. This ride will be appropriate for the whole family.

The attraction will totally immerse guests in a cartoon world and will feature a new catchy theme song created especially for the attraction.

The fun begins when you see the premiere of a new cartoon short with Mickey and Minnie preparing for a picnic. As they head out, they drive alongside a train and find out that the engineer is Goofy. Then, one magical moment lets you step into the movie and on Goofy’s train for a wacky, wild ride. There will be a train engine pulling our ride vehicles.

The teams helping create the attraction are currently working with partners at Disney Television Animation to keep the characters and storyline authentic – and allow guests to join Mickey and his friends like never before. Senior creative director Charita Carter said the ride “is going to break the laws of physics and put you in the animated world.”

This attraction is set to open in Spring 2020. No precise date has been set yet.

Fun Facts About Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway

A Historic Whistle is Being Used in the Ride. A historic whistle provides sound for the train in Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway. The whistle was first used more than 90 years ago, providing the sound of the steamboat whistle in “Steamboat Willie”, the 1928 animated short that introduced Mickey Mouse to the world.
