Another day, another sneak peek inside another upcoming Disney Parks attraction!
Disney Channel stars Meg Donnelly and Milo Manheim from the new Disney Channel original movie Zombies 2 take us inside for a never-before-seen look at Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway. The sneak peek aired on Disney Channel during the “Disney Channel Holiday Party at Walt Disney World” special.
Here’s what we saw:
1. The First Scene!
In the short clip, Meg and Milo were greeted by Disney Imagineer, Charita Carter. Carter told them that they were standing in “Runnamuck Park.” The ride’s story begins here with Mickey and Minnie getting ready to go on “the perfect picnic.”
2. A Historic Whistle
It wouldn’t be Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway without a train, after all. Well, the train whistle on this wacky runaway steam engine has some Disney history behind it. It is the same three-tone whistle heard in Mickey and Minnie’s first-ever short, “Steamboat Willie.”
Mickey and Minnie’s First Ride
One of the most exciting things about this ride is that it is Mickey and Minnie’s first ride-through attraction. Yes, “It was all started by a mouse,” but that mouse never got a ride until now! And the Imagineers know that.
“As we know the mickey shorts are so much fun,” Carter said. “They’ve got these vibrant environments and it was so important to us to make sure we were delivering on that in a dimensional environment for our guests.”
Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway promises to be not just a super-vibrant ride for all ages, but also a very immersive one where “mouse rules apply” and anything can happen. The ride arrives at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in the Spring of 2020. It is already scheduled to arrive in Disneyland park in California in 2022.
