Plexiglass Added to Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway Ride Vehicle Ahead of Pandemic-Era Capacity Increase

Just like what we saw happen at Rise of the Resistance, Disney has added plexiglass to a Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway ride vehicle as a test ahead of a pandemic-era capacity increase for the attraction.

Runaway Railway, as you might know, pulls the longest average waits of any attraction at Walt Disney World right now, and only one party per ride vehicle is loaded due to physical distancing restrictions. With added plexiglass between rows, Disney will effectively be able to double the pandemic-era capacity of the attraction, hopefully bringing the wait time down for the attraction which debuted just weeks before the theme parks closed in mid-March due to COVID-19. Here’s a pre-pandemic ride through.

Here’s a look at the plexiglass installed on a Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway ride vehicle as a test. If all goes well, we can likely expect Disney to increase the pandemic-era capacity for the attraction later this month.

  1. Another ride ruined. The plexiglass will be clean for all of 5 seconds. And it is only a placebo effect at best.

  2. Double the number of people inside an enclosed space and you double the amount of exhaled aerosols. Risk goes up. Does it remain low because of masks and whatever air-exchange system Disney has inside these attractions?
