We got the sad news last summer that the iconic Great Movie Ride would be shutting down pretty abruptly due, in part, to the expiration of Disney’s sponsorship deal with TCM. The good news was that the ride would be replaced with  new attraction based on the popular Mickey-Mouse Shorts.

Thanks to the Disney Parks Blog, we now know that the new Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway ride will open at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in 2019. Here is a bit more detail about the ride from the blog post:

On the attraction, the fun begins when you see the premiere of a new cartoon short with Mickey and Minnie getting ready for a picnic. As they head out, they drive alongside a train and find out that the engineer is Goofy. Then, one magical moment lets you step into the movie and on Goofy’s train for a wacky, wild ride.

Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway will put you inside the wacky and unpredictable world of a Mickey Mouse Cartoon Short where you’re the star and anything can happen. And for the first time, we shared a preview of what the cars will look like when you board the attraction for a zany, out-of-control adventure filled with surprising twists and turns.

It looks like 2019 will be a HUGE year for Hollywood Studios! As always, I will be adding updates here as more details about the new Mickey Mouse ride emerge, so be sure to subscribe and stay tuned!

Update 6/29/18: Disney Parks has released an new concept drawing of what the Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway ride experience will be like. Have a look:
