PHOTOS: “Now Playing” Poster Sign Painted for Mickey Shorts Theater; Opening March 4 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

We profiled the opening of the upcoming Mickey Shorts Theater yesterday and in just 24 hours, we have a new update! The Mickey Shorts Theater is taking over the space vacated by the Star Wars: Path to The Jedi and will feature a new Mickey Short titled “Vacation Fun.” This short will be unique to Hollywood Studios, and will debut with the theater when it opens on March 4th. If that March 4th date rings a bell, it’s because that’s the opening date for Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, of course!

This display signage, which is generally displaying information for area shows of Muppet*Vision 3D and the Frozen Sing-Along Celebration, is not new, but the paint job is. The obvious Mickey Mouse-themed paint job goes with the little hints that we saw yesterday.

The theater will be in pairing with the upcoming Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway attraction that will be themed after the new Mickey Mouse shorts as well. The theater and the attraction will now be in close proximity, so for those that have not watched the new shorts, this will be a good pregame before riding the attraction.

It’s neat that Disney is debuting a unique new Mickey short, and the theater will surely be a popular pairing with Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway. At the very least, this theater will serve as one of the most popular air conditioning joints around!

We here at WDWNT cannot wait for Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, will you be in line with us on opening day March 4th?
