Mickey And Minnie Finally Got Their Own Ride At Disney World!
All aboard Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway! That’s right, Mickey and Minnie are making history with their first ever Disney World ride! Can you believe that Disney World opened in 1971 and this is the first Mickey and Minnie themed ride, and they’re probably the most well-known Disney characters! I guess better late than never?
But this ride looks really cool, especially if you’re looking for some Disney nostalgia. The Disney Hollywood Studios Park has a golden age of Hollywood theme, so it’s no surprise that the new Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway is inside a replica of the Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard- COOL! When you start the ride, you enter the theater under a neon marquee and watch an old Mickey cartoon short, again, super nostalgic. It’s been a long 91 years for poor Mickey but he’s finally had his turn to get his own ride and it doesn’t sound like it’s going to disappoint. The people who created the rides concept used “a combination of physical sets, Audio-Animatronics figures, animated media and projection-mapping techniques,” according to Disney. They even use every surface in this ride as a projection screen! So the next time you’re in Florida and want to feel like a kid again, hit up Disney World and make sure you check out the new Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway!
