Doubled Capacity on Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway Cuts Wait Time In Half

One of the most popular attractions in all of Walt Disney World is the newest attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios – Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway. As much as we love this attraction, wait times have been rather painful recently, especially without a FastPass option. Good news however, it seems as though wait times are greatly improving with doubled capacity on the attraction.


Disney recently installed plexiglass dividers between each row on the attraction, allowing the train to fill with guests rather than having empty rows between each party.

As reported via Twitter by Walt Disney World Wait Times (@WDWWait) on November 17: “The doubled capacity of Mickey and Minnies Runaway Railroad really evident here – wait times nearly halved compared to yesterday!”

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
