PHOTOS: Walls Come Down Around Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway Facade, Revealing New Queue at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

A few months ago, we informed you when construction walls went up around the entrance to the Chinese Theater at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, future home of Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway. This week, the walls have come down, at least temporarily.

The courtyard space is needed for the Jingle Bell, Jingle Bam! dessert parties that are hosted at the park starting November 8th. Walls may go back up in January to complete any exterior work.

Not much was done up here, other than the removal of the decorative piece above the door and the installation of mounts for the eventual attraction marquee.

These temporary rolling walls will be used to hide the food and drink prep and such for the parties. The queue was mostly chains before, but now they have installed railings. They probably should have redone some pavement while they were at it.

Otherwise, the courtyard looks the same.

We can see more new railings under the gazebo to the right. Since it is now closed in by railings, we assume the extended queue will begin somewhere out to the right of the building.

Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway is coming in 2019 to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, as well, is expected to be announced soon for Disneyland Park.
