The evolution of Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios continued further today with the official opening of the first ever dedicated Mickey and Minnie ride in the Chinese Theatre, former home of The Great Movie Ride.
As ever with new attractions at WDW these days the queues to be one of the first to ride stretched to ridiculous lengths, with wait times peaking at 300 minutes at one point in the day. On a related note, FastPass+ is available on this ride.
The idea of the ride is to take you on a journey through a Mickey cartoon with various rooms on the journey each depicting a different scene. There’s a tonne of clever projections and other effects.
The ride system is similar to the Ratatouille ride where multiple ride cars sometimes follow each other and at other points split off in different directions. This allows guests to experience a slightly different ride each time.
You won’ be alone with Mickey and Minnie though as friends such as Goofy, Donald Duck, Pluto, and Huey, Dewey, and Louie will appear throughout too.
