Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway is an upcoming dark ride, slated to replace The Great Movie Ride at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World. The ride features an original story, themed after the animated series Mickey Mouse, making it the first Mickey Mouse-themed ride-through attraction to open in the Disney parks' history. Construction began on August 13, 2017, with an opening date having yet to be announced.[1]

History

The ride was announced at the 2017 D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, and will feature "2 1/2 D" technology (no glasses required). Disney Imagineer Kevin Rafferty stated: "This is one of the boldest…most impossible things I’ve ever worked on in almost 40 years of being an Imagineer. And you know what? That’s what I love about it. Well, that, and Mickey," [...] “This is not going to be a small attraction, it’s going to be game-changing.”[1]

Furthermore, the Disney Television Animation team responsible for the recent, Paul Rudish helmed Mickey Mouse shorts are collaborating with the Disney theme park division and its Imagineers to bring the attraction to life.[1]
