Choo Choo — All aboard Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway!

Walt Disney Imagineering and crews had initially installed the brand new Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway sign earlier in the week, but now we have the chance to see it light up for the first time ever, with a little bit of help from one of our favorite Disney friends.

Goofy stumbled into the Disney park late at night to check out the sign for himself. Check it out in the video below titled Goofy in Neon Nights:

More On Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway

Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway will be an attraction based in the Chinese theater at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, which is where the iconic Great Movie Ride used to be.

It will be a whacky, twisted Disney Parks attraction that takes Disney guests into the world of Mickey Mouse cartoons — literally!

Before guests even physically enter the Chinese Theater, the experience will begin as they will enter a “magic portal” to transport them from our world into the cartoon world!

Once Disney guests board the new attraction, they will be fully immersed in the cartoon world of the new Disney Mickey Mouse shorts. The one and only Goofy will play the role of your engineer as you embark on a fun-filled adventure. But of course, with Goofy comes some with twists and turns so expect to go off course a bit.

You can also expect to run into other Disney friends like Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse so keep those eyes peeled on your adventure.

Walt Disney World Resort guests who wish to experience this brand new attraction will be impressed with brand new technology and unique visual effects as Walt Disney Imagineering creates a multidimensional experience.

The official Walt Disney World description:

The darling duo are taking a leisurely drive to a picnic in their sporty roadster—with Engineer Goofy’s train following merrily along. Plot twist—you get to go, too! Climb aboard a runaway railway and embark on a whirlwind ride through a world where the rules of physics don’t apply. Prepare for unexpected twists, slapstick gags and mind-boggling transformations at every turn, as Mickey and Minnie try to save the day.

This new Disney Parks attraction will be the first of its kind! Why? Well because it is the first ride at Disney Parks to ever feature Mickey Mouse himself — Can you believe that?!

Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway will open to Disney guests on March 4, 2020 in Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort. It will open to Disney guests at Disneyland Park in 2022.
