The wait is almost over! Tomorrow, March 4th, is the official grand opening of the newest attraction in Disney’s Hollywood Studios: Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway!
Earlier today, we got to ride the attraction for the first time and we are thrilled for Mickey and Minnie to have their own ride in Disney World! As we count down the hours to the attraction’s official debut, we’re coming at you live from tonight’s dedication ceremony in Hollywood Studios!
Disney World’s president, Josh D’Amaro, headed up the event with a heartfelt speech thanking everyone who had dedicated their time and energy to bringing this attraction to life.
Mickey and Minnie made an appearance because they are the stars of the show, of course! And their friends Goofy, Pluto, Donald, and Daisy wouldn’t miss celebrating such a special day either!
The dedication ceremony lit up the sign we’ve been patiently waiting to see glow in the night! And wow, it was worth the wait!
If those neon lights weren’t bright enough by themselves, they sure do pop surrounded by sparkly fireworks! Look at that Chinese Theater glow!
The ride officially opens in a few short hours and we will be BACK tomorrow to see the opening day crazy!
Stay tuned as we will keep you updated with all the latest happenings on opening day!
