Disneyland has announced that the opening of Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway will be delayed until 2023.

The park’s new trackless dark ride has been delayed due to the Coronavirus pandemic which has paused many projects across Disney Parks.

In April 2019, Disneyland announced that they had a 2022 opening date for the Runaway Railway before the pandemic closed Disney’s resorts across the world.

An identical version of the Runaway Railway opened in March at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, only a few weeks before Walt Disney World temporarily closed to the public.

Disneyland is still waiting for guidelines by California in order for them to reopen to the public safely.

Walt Disney Imagineers and Disneyland President, Ken Potrock, released an Instagram post showing that the first vertical beam for the attraction was put into place on Tuesday.


When the Runaway Railway is complete, guests will be able to burst into Mickey and Minnie’s World as the darling duo are taking a leisurely drive to a picnic in their sporty roadster—with Engineer Goofy’s train following merrily along.

Climb aboard a runaway railway and embark on a whirlwind ride through a world where the rules of physics don’t apply.

Prepare for unexpected twists, slapstick gags and mind-boggling transformations at every turn, as Mickey and Minnie try to save the day.
