We tried to make a list of bad railroad puns, but we kept getting sidetracked. Instead, we’ll share the newest look at Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway merchandise! Our conductors were on the inside this week as glimpses of the newest attraction were released and they were so cute, we lost our train of thought!
Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway Merchandise
The opening date for the attraction was announced just this week to be March 4, 2020. That’s so close we’re getting tunnel vision for the new aesthetic and products. The items we spotted like toy vehicles, clothing, trading pins and more are just the ticket for Mickey lovers.
Trading Pins and Clothing
This neon-inspired pin looks just like the Marquee that was announced to be gracing the exterior of the attraction. If you can’t be there opening day, this is a great choice to share your enthusiasm! Also offered are unisex or tapered/scoop neck T-shirts, Minnie’s sidekick orange bird (featured on her plush later in this article) character face purse and an adorable “ears” hat depicting Goofy’s long ears and train conductor cap. Tickets, please!
Perhaps you want to lay down the line in your home? These home accents and holiday items are perfect to toot your horn about Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway! Pick up this ceramic Christmas ornament for your holiday tree or choose the amazingly spacious Train Conductor Goofy Coffee mug. All Aboard for a morning cup of joe!
Toys and Collectibles
No Mickey and Minnie attraction would be complete without miniatures of the mice themselves. A classic Mickey with animated eyes in the style of the shorts and attraction is a perfect keepsake or gift with classic Minnie with an orange bird perched on her shoulder make us dream of her vintage styling. Vehicle enthusiasts will adore the attraction ride vehicle in toy form… attraction vehicles have been quite the collectible item! And I simply can’t fail to mention this adorable vintage style train whistle. Read below for speculative facts on why I think they engineered this item for park goers!
Toot Toot! Hear that? It’s Steamboat Willy!
Destination D’s meet up in 2018 tipped us off to some amazing things we’ll hear from the new attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The attraction is holding true to the early Mickey Shorts using only “hand-built.” That means that old-school techniques like techs in a sound booth crunching paper and tapping shoes will create the effects for this ride! This includes the original Steamboat Willy whistle from the original short. I hope it looks just like the whistle picture above that you can purchase and bring home! What a special item to recreate and offer!
