The brand new attraction Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway has officially opened in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. While we’ve already given you a FIRST LOOK at the attraction and the merch, it’s time to step inside.
We will also keep you up-to-date on opening day lines and the grand opening of the new Mickey Shorts Theater!
Be sure to be on the lookout as we will be updating this post throughout the DAY so be sure to check back!
We showed up around 6:10 this morning to find a pretty hefty crowd of people had already gathered.
Here’s a look behind us! While this hasn’t been totally unusual since the grand opening of Rise of the Resistance, it was still a larger group of people waiting to enter the park!
We were allowed into the park at 6:51 AM and were able to hop in line for the ride immediately. It was up and running for guests to ride before the official park opening at 8 AM.
We have seen the wait time fluctuate between 180 minutes and 300 minutes.
Currently, the wait time is 300 minutes…that’s 5 HOURS!
This new attraction allows guests to follow Mickey and Minnie into the zany cartoon world. We were able to hop on the ride yesterday and once again this mornin’!
Cast Members are standing around with signs to let guests know the wait time and where to locate the end of the line.
And an extending queue has been set up for guests waiting to experience the ride.
As of 9:00 AM the wait time is 240 minutes.
As of 11 AM the wait time has gone down to 105 minutes.
Most of the line is up towards the Chinese Theater now.
And don’t forget, the new Mickey Shorts Theater also opened today.
From what we’ve seen, there hasn’t been much of a line.
There has been a bit of a line at Once Upon A Time. This is where you will find Annual Passholder and Opening Day merch.
Looking for Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway merch? Well, good news… we’ve got ya covered!
As of 6:30 PM Runaway Railway is temporarily closed, we aren’t sure when the attraction will reopen but we will keep you posted with any updates.
