Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway will not be available during Extra Magic Hours

Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway, which opens tomorrow at Disney's Hollywood Studios, will not be part of Extra Magic Hours.

It isn't clear if the reason behind this is that the ride system, like the park's other trackless ride Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, will require extended maintenance after regular park hours, or if it is related to the nightly Star Wars nighttime show that takes place on the rooftops of the Chinese Theater. For the month of March, Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular is scheduled for 9pm showings, with the park closing at 8:30pm.

Disney's Hollywood Studios currently makes only evening Extra Magic Hours available, typically taking place on a Sunday for two hours after regular park close.

The current EMH attraction lineup is: Tower of Terror, Star Tours, Rock 'n' Roller Coaster, Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, Alien Swirling Saucers, Slinky Dog Dash, Mickey and Minnie Starring in Red Carpet Dreams, Toy Story mania!

It’s such a shame we never here the “hero” version of “Nothing Can Stop Us Now” on the ride currently.

That’s hardly an appetizer. 😉

There's always the Mickey and Minnie Vacation movie next door to whet your appetite.

That's a bummer. Sadly I have little interest in this attraction until they bring back the full experience. It'd be different if I'd seen it before but I feel like I'd be missing something the first time without seeing the preshow.

Nope, livestream from today shows it being used as a queue. Timestamp at 10mins:

Since our Disney store closed Boxlunch is the only place in town to get Disney merch.

You know, there are laws against indecent exposure.

I was there in February 2020 and did not wear a mask. I rebelled before rebelling was cool. Now, I look back and realize how ridiculous I looked without one and am ashamed.

Not wearing masks is soooo March 9, 2020.

Me too... this one was taken in Magic Kinddom in1983 and not a mask to be found. Shameful!
