All Aboard Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway!

All aboard!  Step into the whimsical universe of a Mickey Mouse short and hitch a ride on Engineer Goofy's train. What could possibly go wrong?  Cue hilarious hijinks! A relaxing train ride suddenly turns into a zany, free-ranging romp through ever-changing and rearranging cartoon scenes. You’ll quickly learn that anything can happen in this out-of-control animated world.  But don’t worry, with friends like Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, you’re bound to get back on track.  We LOVED this ride and it fits perfectly in ToonTown.  I love how the ride literally transported us into a Mickey Mouse short.  Watch our video here of the ride and queue!  If you are going to Disneyland click HERE for the best discounted tickets.

You’re invited to the grand world "prem-ear" of Mickey and Minnie's latest cartoon short, "Perfect Picnic" and where better to watch it than Toontown's favorite small-town movie palace, the El CapiTOON Theater!  As you tour the lobby inside, you'll encounter "Mickey Through the Ears," an exploration of the illustrious film career of the world's most famous mouse, featuring movie props and memorabilia.

The queue is unbelievable and will keep you fully entertained and talking about all the posters and learning along the way while hunting for hidden Mickeys! We had the song stuck in our head all day and absolutely had a blast smiling from ear to ear. We can't wait to ride it again and again. It is the perfect ride for everyone! I will be sharing more about ToonTown later this week.

Watch closely Mickey's hat magically moves up and down!

And when it's your turn to step inside the auditorium to enjoy the premiere, you'll soon learn to expect the unexpected!

Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway is in ToonTown and all ages can ride.  There is no height requirement. 

5 Fun Facts about the ride:

1. The tri-tone whistle from Mickey Mouse’s debut cartoon in 1928, “Steamboat Willie,” was used to record the locomotive whistle sound for Engineer Goofy’s train.

2. A newspaper features the headline “Oswald Wins!” a reference to Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, the cartoon character created by Walt Disney.

3. The 1401 Flower Shop is an homage to Walt Disney Imagineering’s headquarters in Glendale, Calif.

4. The numbers 1901 and 1928 (seen above a tunnel as they exit Runamuck Park) can be seen as references to Walt Disney’s and Mickey Mouse’s birth years, respectively.

5. Imagineers pinned stills from each and every episode of the late Mickey Mouse series in order to soak up the cartoon’s feel.

After you return to the El CapiTOON, you’ll exit through the gift shop, Engineear Souvenirs, back into ToonTown.  Watch the video here.
