Walt Disney World’s newest attraction is once again be fully operational. Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway in Disney’s Hollywood Studios has added the full pre-show back into the ride. The pre-show was not shown during Walt Disney World’s phased reopening for the past 11 months due to safety concerns of having people bunch up in groups indoors.
The ride’s pre-show includes a screening of a new Mickey short that ends with a bang (and a surprise!). The ride opened weeks before the covid-19 pandemic forced Disney to close their parks around the world. The Florida parks reopened last summer with a number of alterations made to attractions and shows.
As vaccination rates continue to outpace new covid cases, Disney is slowly stripping back restrictions throughout their resorts.
The pre-show for Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway is entertaining, highly creative, and uses practical special effects. It truly adds a lot to the new ride and it is good to see guests being able to experience the ride the way Imagineers intended.
