BREAKING: Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway Opening Month Revealed for Disney’s Hollywood Studios

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

With all the back and forth surrounding the opening of Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, it’s been a project not only shrouded in controversy, but hard to keep track of. You could say plans have derailed a bit since its initial Fall 2019 opening projections, but we’re happy to announce that the project is back on track.

While the latest official opening timeframe posted by Disney states that the attraction is slated to open in Spring of 2020, according to internal documents, it appears that Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway is now a bit ahead of schedule.

While “Spring 2020” could mean a myriad of things, the targeted opening date is now a tad earlier and set for February 2020 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. That means we’ll get to start the year off right… or at least at this point, I’d be content just setting foot inside the Chinese Theatre.

Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway is also coming to Toontown at Disneyland Park, but the only official date we have for that attraction is simply “2022”. If you can’t wait for either of these attractions, check out our full scene-by-scene walkthrough to get a better idea of what they’ll be like.

Of course, nothing is official until announced by the Walt Disney Company, but official, internal documents are stating the above as the project timeline.

I miss the Great Movie Ride 😥


I feel bad for all the people who will never get to experience the Great Movie Ride. So much fascinating, beautiful detail in every scene. Gone forever.

My wife and I miss the Great movie ride!!! When you got tired you could go sit,relax and enjoy a good ride all at the same time.🙁 but we’re still at Disney, that’s all that really matters anyway!!! 🤩


I don’t think this will open. If Disney knew back then of what they know now I don’t think Disney would have gotten rid of GMR
