Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway Review
One of the newest attractions at Walt Disney World is Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway! Disney World’s Mickey and Minnies Runaway Railway is a family attraction that takes you through an adventure with Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, and more at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Surprisingly, Disney’s Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway opening date was back in early March 2020. But many Disney guests haven’t had the chance to ride Mickey and Minnies Runaway Railway though because of the ongoing pandemic.

Mickey and Minnie Runaway Railway Ride Location
If you’re a Disney fan like me, you may know that Hollywood Studios is the smallest Disney park and already packed full of Disney attractions. Because Disney’s Hollywood Studios is so packed, a classic Disney attraction was retired.
Since Disney’s Hollywood Studios opened in 1989, the Great Movie Ride has been a staple of Hollywood Studios. The Great Movie Ride is located at the end of Sunset Boulevard in Disney’s Chinese Theater.
Sadly, Disney’s Great Movie Ride was retired in 2017 to make way for the new Mickey and Minnies Runway Railway.
While the Disney’s Chinese Theater remains the same on the outside, the inside of the Chinese Theater was completely renovated to accommodate Mickey and Minnie’s ride.
So on your next Disney vacation, look for the new Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway at the end of Hollywood Studios Sunset Boulevard in the Chinese Theater.
What to Expect on Disney’s Mickey and Minnies Runaway Railway?
Before you even get on the ride, expect a decently long wait to get on the new Mickey and Minnie attraction. In January 2021, the wait time averaged at about a hour.
The queue for Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway looks much different than the Great Movie Ride queue. It’s still a theater like atmosphere inside the Chinese Theater but there are frequent occurrences of Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald, and your favorite Disney characters.
When you get to the loading area, the Mickey and Minnie Railway cars have two rows that each seat four people. Even during COVID, the Mickey and Minnie ride cars can seat eight guests because of plexiglass shields in between rows.
Once on the ride, you are brought into a Mickey Mouse cartoon and you get to travel through the cartoon on Disney’s Mickey and Minnies Runaway Railway with Goofy as your conductor.
The Mickey cartoon takes you through the Grand Canyon, under the sea, to the carnival, to Daisy’s dance studio and much more. During every scene of the cartoon, you are joined by Mickey, Minnie, and your other favorite Disney characters.
In terms of ride cars, the Mickey and Minnie Runaway Railway cars are trackless so you will have a little bit of side to side and quick movements. Additionally, there are some Disney special effects like wind, mist, and more.
Despite the fact there is a little movement and special effects, I haven’t heard of Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway causing any issues in terms of motion sickness.
Disney World’s Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway is the epitome of family attraction. My fiancé and I, childless millennials, had a blast on Mickey and Minnies Runaway Railway and will definitely ride every Disney trip!
This Disney World ride is one you can truly enjoy with your entire family!
