Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway coming soon posters up at The Chinese Theatre

"Coming Soon" posters are now up around The Chinese Theatre as work begins on transitioning the building from The Great Movie Ride to Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway.

The Great Movie Ride sign above what was the standby entrance has been removed, but the main neon signs on the front of the building remain.

Disney has moved quickly to put up the new signage to help guests expecting to find The Great Movie Ride. 

The recently added TCM photo op location has also been replaced with some Mickey and Minnie art.

Although work will no doubt soon be underway inside the building, the front of the building will need to remain accessible at least through the holidays, as dessert parties will be held in the courtyard.

Interesting thought! Although that would involve tweaking the ride vehicles to have egress on the left and right as opposed to just the right hand side, and removing either the load music or the return-to-unload music to avoid clashing.

And from blue prints I have seen (if they're accurate) the whole building is used for fl version. Also thinking right now. Disneyland loves to use the the same loading/unloading areas so if they take out the unloading like floridas they definitely can create another scene.

Maybe tighter show scenes which would allow more space? I don't know. My friend is speculating an additional scene prior to the factory after the dance studio.

But in Orlando the ride is not occupying the complete building right? What would be the reason for WDI to add a scene to the California version versus the Orlando one. Especially when Cal is the one with lack of space..

I may or may not have heard the same thing.

This rumor popped up a few months ago. I wouldn’t be surprised.

Take with a grain of salt. Friend of mine that was opening crew of FL recently told me that wdi over there had hinted at a new scene for Californias version but would not tell them what it is. Only thing settled that we all know is the facade and queue will be different.

Just because the building is a different shape doesn’t mean it can’t be a clone, the transitions in the first half of the ride are done in black box areas for the most part and the preshows and indoor queue could be configured differently.

You're not buying into the rumors in the DL forums that they will delete or add one or more rooms? The DL building's footprint is longer and narrower than DHS's warehouse.

Anyone know if Disneyland‘s Runaway Railway is confirmed to be a clone or not?

Well dang. They must’ve gotten it back up quick. Sorry for the misinformation.

This is not the first time the ride has gone down.
