This year’s D23 Expo is packed with amazing concept art, costumes, and attraction displays. While we got a sneek peek at the locomotive ride vehicles for Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway during the 30th Anniversary media event at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, at the Expo, we got to take a closer look at the ride vehicles and the train conductor Cast Member costumes:
Each train car will feature two rows of bench seating with pull-down lap bars. At the front, a large train conductor car will lead the way along the trackless ride.
The name of the ride’s railroad has also been revealed as the “Runnamuck Railroad”.
The locomotive will glow in the dark depending on the lighting in the ride.
Here are the Cast Member costumes, with a conductor costume and a host costume.
I love that the red host costume features elements of the original Chinese Theatre with its satin fabric and gold piping.
An adorable conductor cap will top the look.

The targeted opening date for this attraction is 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”.
