Additional Show Scenes Planned for Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway at Disneyland

    As Disneyland continues to make progress on their version of Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, they’ll be closing down Toontown in 2022 to bring new life into the area with a renewed focus on the Fab Five characters. As we continue to keep an eye on the Disneyland version of Runaway Railway, a new permit has been filed that seems to indicate that the Disneyland ride will have a few more show scenes than the Disney’s Hollywood Studios version. For a refresher on the Hollywood Studios version, check out our video below.

    When blueprints leaked before the attraction opened at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney clearly defined 13 show scenes – including both pre-show theaters. Now, a new permit has been filed for the Disneyland version that covers work for 16 show scenes – three more than the Disney World version. Here’s a permit for the work, first discovered by DSNY Newscast.

    While Walt Disney World was limited to the existing Chinese Theater show building from the former Great Movie Ride attraction, Disneyland is essentially creating a new build from scratch. This would, in theory, give them a bit more flexibility than the version at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

    As seen in the concept art above, the attraction will take place in the El Capitoon Theater in the Toontown section of Disneyland. Just like the Chinese Theater, guests will likely “step into” a screen to experience Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway at Disneyland. As you can see in the concept art below, the queue will be different than the Chinese Theater at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, which retained a lot of the queue from the previous attraction that utilized the space – The Great Movie Ride.

    It remains to be seen whether or not those show scenes will be on the ride or in the pre-show portion of the experience. Disney has not confirmed many details about the Disneyland version of Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, but we do expect to hear more before its 2023 debut.
