Opening Day crowds at Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway

Disney's Hollywood Studios was once greeted with 4:30am arrivals as guests arrived to ride Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway opening today at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

Parking opened around 4:30am, with security opening at 4:45am, and a steady flow of guests began filling the area at the main entrance.

Touch Points opened just before 6:45am, with guests immediately heading to the Chinese Theater where Cast, Crew and Imagineers who worked on the ride were waiting. The first guests entered the ride around 6:50am.

Lines quickly reached the three hour mark by 7am, and the line extended all the way through the park to Tower of Terror. By 8am, the wait was five hours.

As with the opening of Star Wars Galaxy's Edge, Cast Members were very well prepared and handled the situation exceptionally well.

By the afternoon, the standby wait had settled into a steady 2 hours.
