If you can hardly wait for all of the new attractions to come to Walt Disney World in the next few years (from Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to all the updates at Epcot), you may want to contain your excitement for a little while longer. Disney just announced that Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway will be opening at Disney’s Hollywood Studios later than anticipated.

Disney revealed the latest news about Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway at Walt Disney World in an announcement that the attraction would also be coming to the west coast. While the Mickey Mouse-themed attraction will take a few years to be constructed and opened at Mickey’s Toontown in Disneyland park, it seems as though production is being delayed a little while longer in Florida. Disney shared that Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway won’t open at Disney’s Hollywood Studios until sometime in 2020, which could be a whole year later than previously announced.

Disney shared last year that the attraction was set to open in 2019 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, a theme park that has been undergoing massive changes over the past few years with the closing of several attractions and the opening of (and soon-to-debut) entirely new lands. The Great Movie Ride closed back in 2017 to make way for Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, making it the final opening-day attraction to close at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. With all of the publicity and hype around Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway over the past two years and the gradual opening of more attractions at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, fans have been itching to find out more about what’s to come for the attraction and have their chance to experience it.

Knowing Disney, a delay in the opening of Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway simply means that the attraction will be even better than we ever anticipated. Disney hasn’t shared why the attraction will be opening later than previously announced, but we’ll update you when we know more information. For now, we’ll continue to get excited about all of the new and exciting attractions coming to Disneyland and Walt Disney World. We can hardly wait to experience all of them!

    A little disappointed, with opening of star wars ,you would think opening this attraction would ease up on the burden a little

      It’s probably Star Wars that’s pushing it back. There’s only so many construction crews to go around… and I also have a sneaking suspicion that this uses some of the same ride tech used in Rise of the Resistance (which has also been pushed back). It makes me wonder if they ran into some technical issue with the ride tech and are resolving it for Star Wars first before moving forward on MRR.
