This last week a new image was released for Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway. This is the first Disney attraction based around Mickey Mouse. It will be arriving at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in 2019. In the image, fans get a first look at Goofy as the engineer of the train that will take guests on their animated journey.
Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway was originally announced at the 2017 D23 Expo. The announcement was made by Bob Chapek and Kevin Rafferty who gave a first look at what this attraction will be like.

The attraction will take guests on a totally immersive ride in Mickey’s cartoon ride. It will also include a new theme song. According to the Disney Parks Blog, guests will start the attraction off by watching a Mickey Mouse short. It will have Mickey and Minnie preparing for a picnic. As they head for their picnic, they soon find themselves driving next to a train. Of course Goofy is the engineer for this train. Then in a moment of Disney magic, guests will find themselves on board Goofy’s train and a part of the movie. With Goofy driving the train, it can be guaranteed that this will be a whacky and wild ride.
The attraction is being worked on currently by Walt Disney Imagineering, in conjunction with Disney Television Animation. This is being done to ensure that the attraction is consistent with the Mickey Mouse shorts that fans have come to know and love.
