We’re only a few short months away from chugging along Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway!
While we’ve already given you a sneak peek of the ride, a glimpse of the ride vehicles (the most colorful trains around), and a first look at the attraction’s merchandise, now you can actually check out the inside the ride!
We were able to see the first scene AND a better look of the runaway train during this year’s “Disney Channel Holiday Party @Walt Disney World!” Disney Channel’s Zombies 2 stars Meg Donnelly and Milo Manheim met up with an Imagineer to show us a preview of the anticipated attraction arriving in Hollywood Studios on March 4th, 2020.
We’ve already given you a clue about the ride’s adorable plot, where guests will first watch a short in the new animation style (kind of like the movie montage at the beginning of The Great Movie Ride!). The short will feature Mickey and Minnie trying to plan the perfect picnic when they meet up with Goofy the train conductor.
As they go over a set of bumpy railroad tracks, the train accidentally breaks open and sends Pluto and a pie flying. The pie lands in the smokestack of Goofy’s train and causes the entire screen to explode (!!!).
Buuuut, if that isn’t cool enough for you, the screen then magically transforms into a doorway after Goofy asks a Cast Member to bring the guests through the screen to help out! Talk about stepping inside a story!!
In the new preview on Disney Channel, though, viewers were also able to see the area where guests would board their ride vehicles to start their journey through the opening scene in Runnamuck Park!
And, for all those Steamboat Willie fans out there, you’ll be happy to know that the tri-tone whistle from the original animation will be used for the Runaway Railway train as well! We love this nod to the old Mickey shorts from the new Mickey shorts!
You can take a peek inside Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway here! (Also, I love this imagineer so much. She is the CUTEST.)
