Disney's first Mickey Mouse ride gets 2020 opening date
POSTED 05 Dec 2019 . BY Andy Knaggs
Disney has announced an opening date for Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway at its Hollywood Studios park, with the new attraction set to debut on 4 March 2020.

This will be the first Disney ride to feature Mickey and Minnie Mouse, the dark ride is billed as a 'zany out-of-control adventure', where guests will find themselves transported into a Mickey Mouse cartoon.

The ride will be one of Disney’s most visually advanced, using new technologies to transform the two-dimensional cartoon world of Mickey Mouse in a “multi-dimensional experience”. It will feature new '2 & ½ D' technology, essentially 3D without glasses, as well as projectors and technologies created by Panasonic.

Amongst a plethora of additional updates from Disney Parks chair Bob Chapek also revealed three new films to be shown at Epcot from January 17 2020, including a Beauty and the Beast sing-along; a DuckTales World Showcase Adventure interactive treasure hunt and the immersive Remy's Ratatouille Adventure, due to open Q2 2020 in the France pavilion at Epcot.
