Walt Disney World has unveiled more about the projects heading to Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida in 2020. Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway and Mickey Shorts Theater now have opening dates, and Roundup Rodeo BBQ in Toy Story Land has a concept image.

In a special presentation at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, Disney Parks, Experiences and Products chairman Bob Chapek announced that Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway will open on March 4, 2020 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway will be the first Disney ride-through attraction featuring Mickey and Minnie Mouse, with guests feeling like they’re inside a cartoon.

Runaway Railway is part of a larger transformation of Walt Disney World, which includes the Mickey Shorts Theater in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
