In the photo, we see all of the weathered railings in place for loading guests to enter Goofy’s train. Much like the Great Movie Ride that preceded it, there are a number of pre-show experiences before guests load the trains. After wandering through the initial exterior and interior queue, things start to change where the large pre-show theater showing classic movie trailers once stood, just before guests would board their “journey into the movies”. This large room has been broken down into two identical pre-show movie theaters where guests will be going to see this new Mickey Mouse cartoon about the trio (including Minnie and Pluto) heading to the park for a picnic, with the screen ultimately opening up and guests walking through it to this load area of the attraction.
This is technically our second look at the platform, since we saw some of it back during the special sneak peek that aired on the Disney Channel in early December. The entire train barn space is covered in cartoony printed wood, with beams and pipes jutting out from the ceiling.
Artwork on the walls displays a zany-looking Engineer Goofy, who’s no less than the Employee of the Month at the Runnamuck Railroad.
Here we see some of the train engineers in training as they stand by the unload area, where guests disembark and go back through a movie screen in a new post-show theater, to eventually exit out the same exit doors as The Great Movie Ride. It’s likely that these are not their finalized Cast Member costumes, but we’ll surely get a sneak peek of those soon enough.
