Disney’s Hollywood Studios has arguably been the most popular theme park at Walt Disney World Resort since the property began its phased reopening in July 2020. This is, in large part, due to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and the incredibly popular Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway ride!

At the time of publication, the ride has not reopened.

It is important to note that Walt Disney World Resort Cast Members do everything they can to keep rides and attractions operational all day, every day at all four Disney World theme parks — EPCOT, Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
