You’ll need to rope drop this ride very soon because it will no longer have a virtual queue with boarding groups!

Virtual Queues

For the most popular attractions, a virtual queue is used with the My Disney Experience app. When a virtual queue is in place, you can request to enjoy that attraction or experience later in the day, so you can enjoy other experiences while you wait.

When the virtual queue is in place, a standby queue will not be available, and Guests must use the My Disney Experience app to enter the attraction or experience.

Step into the world of Mickey and Minnie in this new attraction. It is the first ride to feature Mickey and Minnie Mouse! 

Mickey and Minnie Mouse take a leisurely drive to a picnic in their sporty roadster—with Engineer Goofy’s train following along. Climb aboard a runaway railway and embark on a whirlwind ride. Prepare for unexpected twists, slapstick gags and mind-boggling transformations at every turn, as Mickey and Minnie try to save the day.

Ways to Ride

At Disney World, guests can ride Mickey’s and Minnie’s Runaway Railway at the Chinese Theater using a traditional queue or by purchasing Genie+ and selecting an available time to ride.

Recently, Mickey’s and Minnie’s Runaway Railway opened in Disneyland at Toontown’s favorite small-town movie palace, the El CapiTOON Theater! When it opened, it was only available by purchasing an Individual Lightning Lane or getting a boarding group using the virtual queue.

Traditional Queue Coming

Even though it’s Disney’s latest ride to use a virtual queue when it opened, beginning tomorrow, guests no longer need a boarding group to experience Mickey’s and Minnie’s Runaway Railway at Disneyland.

Starting tomorrow, guests will have two choices: either wait in a traditional queue or buy an Individual Lightning Lane!

What do you think of this change? Are you a fan of virtual queues? Please let us know in the comments and share this post with a friend.


  1. IF you are lucky to get into the virtual queue — you have to constantly refresh, and hit it RIGHT at the perfect time, usually within 10 seconds, its gone. I’ve gotten lucky ONCE in the past 4 years.

  2. Just returned from Disneyland. I love the virtual queue. Woke up at a few minutes before 7, loved into the Disneyland app, was able to get a boarding group both times I tried. For free. This lightning lane for purchase business is a money grab and it stinks.

  3. Absolutely Verna. When I heard rumors about them starting to charge for “fast passes” I thought no way will Disney do that. I was proven wrong. Walt is turning in his grave. His plan of creating a place families can go have fun together is no more. They have priced so many people out of taking their families. It’s such a shame.

  4. It’s about time. Disney is draining every penny from guests pocket. Fast Pass was a wonderful perk of being in a Disney park, but paying extra is just greedy
