I was also lucky enough to experience the very first part of the ride. Aside from being surprisingly fun, I had the new theme song stuck in my head for the rest of that morning.
What we know about Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway
It all starts once you enter the NEW Mickey Mouse cartoon short “Perfect Picnic” and become immersed in cartoon-world. Mickey and Minnie are taking a leisurely drive to a picnic in their sporty roadster. Engineer Goofy’s train follows merrily along. Then you get to join them. Climb aboard a runaway railway and embark on a whirlwind ride on an adventure where the rules of physics don’t apply. Why? Because you’re in cartoon world! Prepare for unexpected twists, slapstick gags and mind-boggling transformations at every turn. The heroes are Mickey and Minnie, who try to save the day.
