What is the Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway?
Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway is a fun, family-friendly ride that is full of surprises! It’s categorized as a trackless dark ride and located in Walt Disney World Resort’s Hollywood Studios theme park, inside the replica of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway replaces The Great Movie Ride.
Disney World’s version was first announced at the July 2017 D23 Expo as part of the proposed 23 improvements to Disney Parks.
After several years of construction, the attraction opened on March 4, 2020.
It’s the first Disney attraction to feature Mickey and Minnie Mouse, and the first Mickey Mouse-themed ride-through attraction at a Disney theme park.
Another version of Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway is scheduled to open at Disneyland during the 2022 season. It will be located in Mickey’s Toontown. See our Disneyland Map page for the location.
