Backstage photos at Walt Disney World are a definite no, and photos from inside a Disney construction site are typically an even bigger issue, but still, somehow, photos have leaked from the interior of the Chinese Theater at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, former home of The Great Movie Ride and future home of Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway.
The photos were posted on a website called Backdoor Disney. By the time you read this, it is possible that the site, the photos, and/or the video no longer exist thanks to Disney stepping in. Data within the photos indicate that the photos were taken in May/June of this year.
The photos are not of the best quality, but they are the only look inside we will probably be getting for while.
There is also, for now, a video from inside of the building that is a little clearer than most of these photographs:
It could be a bit heart wrenching to look at these if you loved The Great Movie Ride, but hopefully Runaway Railway won’t disappoint when it opens sometime in 2019 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
