Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway is a trackless dark ride in Disney's Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort in Bay Lake, Florida, and in Disneyland in Anaheim, California. The attraction—the first Mickey Mouse-themed ride-through attraction at a Disney theme park—is based on the stylized world from the Paul Rudish television series.[3][4]

The version of Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway at Disney's Hollywood Studios was first announced at the D23 Expo in July 2017[5] as part of the unveiling of 23 improvements to Disney Parks,[6] including four new rides across the theme parks.[7] The version at Disney's Hollywood Studios opened on March 4, 2020, within the park's replica of Grauman's Chinese Theatre, replacing The Great Movie Ride.[8][9] A second version in the Mickey's Toontown section of Disneyland opened on January 27, 2023.[8][9][10][2]

Disney's Hollywood Studios

Disney's Hollywood Studios is a theme park at the Walt Disney World Resort in Bay Lake, Florida, near Orlando. It is owned and operated by The Walt Disney Company through its Parks, Experiences and Products division. Based on a concept by Marty Sklar, Randy Bright, and Michael Eisner, the park opened on May 1, 1989, as the Disney-MGM Studios (Theme) Park, and was the third of four theme parks built at Walt Disney World. Spanning 135 acres (55 ha), the park is dedicated to the imagined worlds from film, television, music, and theatre, drawing inspiration from the Golden Age of Hollywood.

Bay Lake, Florida

Disneyland

Disneyland

Disneyland is a theme park in Anaheim, California. Opened in 1955, it was the first theme park opened by The Walt Disney Company and the only one designed and constructed under the direct supervision of Walt Disney. Disney initially envisioned building a tourist attraction adjacent to his studios in Burbank to entertain fans who wished to visit; however, he soon realized that the proposed site was too small for the ideas that he had. After hiring the Stanford Research Institute to perform a feasibility study determining an appropriate site for his project, Disney bought a 160-acre (65 ha) site near Anaheim in 1953. The park was designed by a creative team hand-picked by Walt from internal and outside talent. They founded WED Enterprises, the precursor to today's Walt Disney Imagineering. Construction began in 1954 and the park was unveiled during a special televised press event on the ABC Television Network on July 17, 1955. Since its opening, Disneyland has undergone expansions and major renovations, including the addition of New Orleans Square in 1966, Bear Country in 1972, Mickey's Toontown in 1993, and Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge in 2019. Additionally, Disney California Adventure Park opened in 2001 on the site of Disneyland's original parking lot.

Premise

At the beginning of the ride, guests are invited to watch the premiere of a new Mickey Mouse cartoon, Perfect Picnic, in which Mickey and Minnie Mouse prepare for a picnic outing and encounter Goofy driving a train.[7] According to Imagineer Kevin Rafferty, guests then pass through a simulated movie screen where they will experience a “zippy zany out-of-control adventure”.[8] Guests will then be transported into the cartoon and aboard Goofy's train, which takes them on a wild adventure.[7]

The ride features a new technology known as "2 and 12 D" (3D without glasses) to give depth to the 2D environments.[5][11] It also includes more hidden Mickeys than any existing ride.[11][12]

Summary

The premise of the ride is that guests are invited to the movie theater to watch the premiere of a brand new Mickey Mouse cartoon, Perfect Picnic. The movie theater experience is different depending on the location.

Facade

The Disney World version at Hollywood Studios is located at the end of Hollywood Boulevard inside the full-scale replica of Grauman's Chinese Theatre, which formerly housed The Great Movie Ride.

The Disneyland version is located inside Mickey's Toontown at the El CapiTOON Theater, a pun on the El Capitan Theatre (which is owned by Disney) in Hollywood.

Queue

In the Disney's Hollywood Studios version, guests enter the Chinese Theatre and wind through the lobby, adorned with a series of posters of Mickey Mouse shorts that might have previously premiered there, before entering the auditorium.[13] Beside the poster artwork for Perfect Picnic are nine posters for real-life Mickey Mouse shorts: "Croissant de Triomphe", "Mumbai Madness", "Potatoland", "Split Decision", "Three-Legged Race", "Tokyo Go", "Wish Upon a Coin", "Wonders of the Deep", and "Yodelberg". The posters were created for the attraction by Walt Disney Imagineering and Disney Television Animation.[14]

In the Disneyland version, the queue features a special exhibit put together by the Toontown Hysterical Society called "Mickey Though the Ears", showcasing Mickey's career with costumes, posters, and props from the toon world.[15] In addition to the nine Mickey Mouse shorts posters seen from Chinese Theatre, the queue also have multiiple posters pardoning the live-action Disney movies with characters from the Mickey Mouse universe such as Newsies, The Absent-Minded Professor, The Parent Trap, The Mighty Ducks, Freaky Friday, High School Musical 3: Senior Year, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, The Rocketeer, Hocus Pocus, and The Happiest Millionaire.

Pre-show

The guests then enter the auditorium where the short, Perfect Picnic will be premiering. Once the doors close, the cartoon begins on the movie screen. The short begins with Mickey, Minnie, and Pluto setting out for a picnic at the Runnamuck Park, singing "Nothing Can Stop Us Now" while packing Mickey's car, Minnie accidentally packs Pluto with the picnic basket in the trunk. The duo make their way to the park. Along the way, Mickey and Minnie drive alongside Goofy, who is operating the Runnamuck Railroad train that surrounds the park. Mickey and Minnie pull forward and hit a bump on the railroad crossing. The trunk pops open, releasing Pluto and the picnic basket into the air, which Pluto quickly manages to save the picnic basket. However, a pie from the basket falls out and lands on top of the train's smokestack. With the pie clogging the smokestack, the train picks up speed. Goofy panics as the train pulls into a railroad barn, where an explosion occurs, causing a large, ragged hole to appear in the movie screen (which is created by a hidden mechanism and therefore literally breaking the fourth wall). When the smoke clears, Goofy lands on a loose board on the outside of the barn, sees the guests and offers them a ride on the train. He then asks a nearby cast member to help the guests step inside the cartoon while he goes back to the barn to fix the train. After walking through the movie screen, the guests find themselves inside the cartoon railroad station, and make their way to the loading platform where the train arrives.

Ride experience

Once the train stops at the loading station, guests board one of four cars behind the locomotive. The train then departs the station and makes a left turn, passing the park on a musical sunny day before entering a tunnel. Once inside, Goofy opens the back window and asks the guests if they are ready for a tour around the park. Mickey and Minnie pull alongside the train and exchange greetings. Mickey parks next to a railroad switch lever and asks Goofy to take care of the guests. Goofy proudly exclaims, "Gawrsh they're with me, what could possibly go wrong? Well, back to work." Goofy closes his window and begins to sing "I've Been Working on the Railroad" when the nearby switch lever falls, disconnecting the cars from Goofy's locomotive. The locomotive makes a left, while the cars with guests make a right. Mickey and Minnie race after the runaway train.

The cars exit the tunnel into a desert with Mickey and Minnie on horses trying to round up the cars. They become tangled in their ropes as vultures swoop in to attack. The cars then enter an amusement park where Mickey and Minnie float in attached to balloons. Before they can make their way down, the twister logo on the side of the park's wooden roller coaster comes to life, sending everything into a frenzy. Each car moves into a dark room with the tornado at its center. Mickey, Minnie, and Pluto are seen swirling around. In the next room, the duo lands on a tropical island where a volcanic eruption occurs. Each of the four cars enter their own separate coves that are partially enclosed with individual screens. Mickey and Minnie are shown to be caught in a rapid downstream heading toward a waterfall. Guests are seemingly following close behind and fall with them into the water, emerging moments later in an underwater city. It is filled with a variety of animated sea life moving to music with some playing instruments.

The scene transitions into a sewage system where the water drains away, and the cars move into another room depicting the downtown of a large city at night. Pete can be seen with a jackhammer doing construction work and laughing, while Donald Duck is spotted in a delivery van. The cars veer left into a room designed as a dance studio, and Daisy Duck leads them into a waltz followed by a conga. The cars dance their way into a back alley and into a factory, as Minnie warns not to enter. The cars then appear to be stuck on a conveyor belt moving toward a smasher. Mickey and Minnie eventually manage to pull a switch that shuts down the factory and transforms it into a moonlit night at the park. The cars reverse and turn around, moving into another room where Mickey, Minnie, and Pluto are finally having their picnic. The lead car reattaches to the locomotive helmed by Goofy, who tells guests that his "guided tour" has concluded and thanks them for staying with him. The train pulls around the corner to find Mickey, Minnie, and Pluto having a picnic singing one final rendition of "Nothing Can Stop Us Now" while fireworks go off in the sky above and over the guests. Goofy waves goodbye, closes the back window, and is heard discovering a lever wondering what it does. Just before the train returns to the station, he pulls it, triggering a small explosion inside his cab followed by his signature holler, giving riders one last laugh. The train then pulls back into the barn, where Goofy thanks the guests for riding with him and tells them to exit safely and asks for them to come back soon. As guests leave the station, they pass through the movie screen to return to the real world, the title card saying “The End” is displayed as guests leave the theater.
