Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway

Summer 2019

With rumors saying it could be testing as early as May, Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway is going to be challenging how we think about 3-D attractions. Featuring a catchy new song and a style of animation they are calling ‘2-½ D’ that requires no glasses. We can expect this attraction to bring everything we love about our fabulous five friends to the station.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens

August 29, 2019

Black Spire Outpost on Planet Batuu is a beautiful must-see for any space traveler, rebel spy, or Imperial guard. Enjoy local foods, gear up, and explore the edge of the galaxy. There are two all-new attractions, three dining experiences, and four new shops. You are sure to love your adventures in space.

The magic of the movies is something that has stood the test of time. It has fascinated the masses since the first photograph was taken. We love the changes at Hollywood Studios and hope to see many more
