Disneyland Resort has ramped up the promotion of this brand-new attraction in the past few weeks as Magic Key holders and once-in-a-lifetime visitors prepare to experience it for the first time. However, some Guests have already gotten a sneak peek at the ride.

Reddit user u/Development-Fiesty shared two photos of the ride, taken through a noticeable gap in a construction fence in Mickey’s Toontown:

Some commenters joked that instead of promoting the ride more, The Walt Disney Company executives chose to leave it up to the Guests. u/GeneralFactotum wrote:

Disney Advertising Exec: “What do you mean we have no more budget to promote MMRR?”

Disney Big Boss: “Deal with it!”

Disney Advertising Exec: “No problem, I’ll just leave a gap in the fence. It will be all over the Internet by morning!”

A Modern Mouse-terpiece!

You’re invited to the grand world “prem-ear” of Mickey and Minnie’s latest cartoon short, “Perfect Picnic”—and where better to watch it than Toontown’s favorite small-town movie palace, the El CapiTOON Theater!

As you tour the lobby inside, you’ll encounter “Mickey Through the Ears,” an exploration of the illustrious film career of the world’s most famous mouse, featuring movie props and memorabilia.

And when it’s your turn to step inside the auditorium to enjoy the premiere, you’ll soon learn to expect the unexpected!
