Mickey’s Toontown saw a bit of a change happen this week as work began for a new attraction. Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway will be arriving at Mickey’s Toontown in 2022. As part of the work required to bring this attraction to Toontown, hills behind Mickey’s Toontown were removed this week. The result is a skyline change for this animated town.
This will be the first of many changes for Mickey’s Toontown before the arrival of the attraction based on the Mickey and Minnie shorts that have been released in recent years. The new attraction is being built behind the Toontown Gag Factory. When finished, guests will enter the attraction through a new El Capitoon Theater in the area. There, the Perfect Picnic will be shown. Guests visiting the theater will also be able to see a special exhibit created by the Toontown Hysterical Society. It will include costumes and props from the toon world.
Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway is a trackless attraction that will take guests on an adventure into the cartoon world inhabited by Mickey and Minnie Mouse. On this crazy four-car train guests will set off for a picnic with Mickey, Minnie, and Pluto. Of course, things go wrong and soon the train is off on a crazy adventure. During this wacky ride, guests will encounter hurricanes, waterfalls and stampeding bulls as their train winds its way through the attraction.
The attraction’s entrance appears to be replacing the Toontown Gag Factory shop. Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway will also be opening at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in 2020 at the Walt Disney World Resort.
