The entrance to Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway at Disneyland Park in California

There’s a new attraction in Mickey’s Toontown, called Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway! This cute dark-ride is the first to feature the classic Disney cartoon stars at Disneyland Resort. In this article, find out the different options for experiencing this magical new attraction!

Two Ways to Ride Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway

Located in Mickey’s Toontown, Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway is the first ever attraction to feature Disney’s main characters, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse!

The attraction was first unveiled at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in 2020, and was an instant hit with Guests. And now, this innovative all-ages attraction is open at the Disneyland Resort in Mickey’s Toontown!

If you’re looking forward to experiencing Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway when it first opens, you should be aware there are two options available for you:

  1. Standby Queue
  2. Genie+

Standby Queue

The standby queue will work the same as any other queue at Disneyland Park.

For Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, the queue is very cute, with lots of fun décor that celebrates Mickey’s cartoon history. You’ll find scenes dedicated to classic cartoons such as “The Band Concert” and “Mickey and the Beanstalk,” as well as nods to modern Mickey cartoons such as Potatoland.

Pay extra close attention to the concession stand area; there are tons of fun Easter Eggs to spot, including the shape of the popcorn!

This attraction will be extremely popular. Expect your wait in the queue to be 60-90 minutes during peak times.

Using Genie+

Want to skip the long standby line? I don’t blame you! There is another option, but you’ll have to cough up some money to use it.

With Genie+, Guests can pay a fee to bypass the standard queue of several select attractions.

Genie+ costs a minimum of $30 per guest, and it can be used all day. However, you cannot use Genie+ for the same attraction more than once.
