Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway Coming to Hollywood Studios

The Great Movie Ride will be closing officially August 13, 2017, to make way for Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway in Hollywood Studios.

Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway should be like nothing we have seen before. The attraction will be in “2 1/2 D” and guests will not need to wear 3D glasses!

If you’ve checked out Disney Channel lately you may have seen a series of Mickey Mouse shorts during commercials. This new ride is inspired by these cartoon shorts.

Mickey and Minnie will take you on an adventure through their cartoon world with a brand new original soundtrack made just for the ride.

There is no official release date at this time but, we will keep you updated as soon as a date is released.

  1. Hi Kenny! Have you heard an update on Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway besides just 2019? Planning out some trips and wondering when this will be open. Thanks in advance!

  2. I am so saddened that GMR is going away! It was one of my favorites in HS. Unfortunately, or next trip isn’t until December, so I’ll never get to ride this ride again….

  3. NO NO NO!!! OMG, why do they keep closing things when they should expand! The GMR is a classic, my daughters LOVE it. How can i show them parts of the past great movies. We love Marry Poppins, Wizard of OZ, the Tarzan yell. This is by far one of the biggest mistakes they are making. We love this ride and can’t believe they would remove it. Sad, Sad, day. I think i will get a black arm band with GMR on it and wear it. Luckily we will be there the first week of August to say goodbye. SMH
    P.S. if anyone knows of a petition anywhere i can sign let me know.

  4. I don’t like the new Mickey look. Looks too much like Ren & Stimpy, creepy looking! I wish it was classic Mickey & Minnie. Ugh!

  5. This major movie buff is sad… I even enjoyed the black and white clips and commentary in the waiting area. RIP MGM Studios, AKA Hollywood Studios… I guess we need to accept that Disney is officially moving away from the magic of movies and embrace the upcoming rebranding :(

  6. Same here. We’re going in November 2017 and I’m sad that GMR won’t be there. Now I’m wishing I had ridden it a few more times when I was at HS last year.

  7. By the time the ride opens your son will be older and not into it anymore….ok sorry a bit “tonue in cheek” but man Disney takes a long time to build anything

  8. not happy – I do not think the new Mickey shorts are Mickey at all. They actually kinda creep me out. If it was the classic Mickey, I might be more interested. – I also still like the Great Movie Ride.

  9. My kids love the shorts. I personally hate to see the Great Movie Ride go away and am all the more glad we have applied your advice about seeing characters when they are out, not counting on them to be there on our next trip, to all things Disney. It wasn’t until we’d been several times that we finally made it a point to see the ride. Glad we did it before it disappeared! Thanks for the advice!

    On a side note, I sure hope Disney doesn’t go the way of Universal. We just completed our first trip to Hollywood and most every experience was a screen variant….not my kind of experience.

  10. I wish they were going with a more classic feel if they are using Mickey and Minnie. The new stuff looks really anime influenced. Ditto on the creepy feel comments.

  11. I LOVE the movie ride and look forward to it every visit!! I shared it with my daughter, and most recently with my grandchildren. It saddens me that it will be gone. Change and addition are great, but not at the loss of all the classic Disney things!

  12. Hi Kenny! Even though I love the Great Movie Ride I understand that change is important. But I think they should have first tried to redo the Movie Ride into something better, integrating newer movies and technologies. After all it is not for nothing that the park is called HOLLYWOOD Studios…
