This week, io9 was invited to preview Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway RailwayDisney Parks’ latest attraction—just in time for the Disney100 celebration, which kicks off at the Disneyland Resort this week.

Come with us as we take you on a sneak peek of Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, a new ride in Toontown at the original Disneyland park. Inspired by classic cinema, this attraction differs slightly from its Disney World Hollywood Studios counterpart, giving Mickey a hometown feel in his cartoon world. Read along for more sights inside the theater, featuring a delightful, alternate canon franchise of familiar Disney films with a twist—and some out-of-this-world prop work, too!

Disney really should make these. It already has a platform for them—and it could go all ‘90s-era animation with this one!

If this doesn’t happen, we will riot (and by “we,” I mean the two writers at io9 who are dedicated High School Musical and A Goofy Movie fans). Yes, we mean all three movies and at least one of them has to feature Powerline.

I love that they featured Carried Away (among various others), the last Mickey Mouse short in which the great Russi Taylor voiced Minnie Mouse before her passing. This and Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway were her last outings and are both incredible high notes for the beloved icon.
