Disney has released some new information about the two upcoming Walt Disney World attractions. Most important of which is a more finite opening date for each attraction.
The Guardians of the Galaxy roller coaster at Epcot (one of the longest indoor roller coasters in the world) will be open by Disney World’s 50th anniversary (October) in 2021. Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway will be open next year in 2019.
Here’s some information direct from Disney about the attractions that are coming to Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Guardians of the Galaxy Roller Coaster Attraction
Larger-than-life Super Heroes will descend upon Epcot with the opening of a Guardians of the Galaxy attraction. Based on the rockin’, action-packed “Guardians of the Galaxy” movies, this one-of-a-kind family attraction will feature a brand-new, innovative ride system – and will be one of the longest enclosed roller coasters in the world! Coming to Epcot Future World, the new attraction will open in time for the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World Resort in 2021.
Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway
The first ever ride-through attraction themed to Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse will delight guests at Disney’s Hollywood Studios beginning in 2019. Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway will feature a new original story and lovable theme song, as it takes guests on a journey inside the wacky and unpredictable world of Disney Channel’s Emmy Award-winning “Mickey Mouse” cartoon shorts. New technologies will transform the two-dimensional cartoon world into an incredible multi-dimensional experience.
