Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway opened to Guests in 2020 in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, but just recently, Disney has installed another sign at the entrance, which closely resembles the old The Great Movie Ride sign.

In case you aren’t familiar, Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway is located inside the Chinese Theater at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. This new attraction replaced the extinct Disney attraction, The Great Movie Ride, which was also located within the Chinese Theater.

Now, Disney is bringing Guests some nostalgia as a new entrance sign installed at Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway closely resembles The Great Movie Ride.

Drew took to Twitter to share a photo of the new sign and mentions the close font resemblance to The Great Movie Ride:

New Runaway Railway standby entrance sign at Hollywood Studios is definitely a nod to The Great Movie Ride entrance sign!

Font is almost identical to The Great Movie Ride sign.

A little addition and detail but definitely cool (and great for the Cast Members).

And, DisNoah’s Adventures also points out that the new sign is a “perfect match” of gold font that Disney used for Great Movie Ride as he shares a side by side photo comparing the two:

Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway just added a new sign! Perfect match of the Gold and the font as they used for The Great Movie Ride! Totally brings me in a vibe! I cannot wait to Ride Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway in June 2021!

Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway is a trackless theme park ride at Disney’s Hollywood Studios that features effects and sounds like no other Disney attraction. This is the first-ever Disney theme park attraction that is based around Mickey Mouse himself! In case you haven’t yet had the chance to ride, Guests will enter the Chinese Theater, which will serve as “the magic portal”, they will instantly be fully emerged into Mickey’s Toontown.
