Everyone is gearing up for the grand opening of Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on March 4th, but there are actually two Mickey-themed attractions opening in the park that day. The old ‘Drew Carey’s Sounds Dangerous’ theater (recently showing ‘Path of the Jedi’) is getting its own Mickey Mouse upgrade to become the Mickey Shorts Theater.
It will feature a new Mickey Mouse cartoon “Vacation Fun,” animated just for the show, featuring the big cheese and his leading lady Minnie! The original animated short celebrates the favorite vacation memories shared by Mickey and Minnie Mouse, plus a few new adventures.
The attraction and show is exclusive to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and features new animation plus clips from some favorite Mickey Mouse shorts, including Panda-monium, Couples Sweaters, Potatoland, Croissant de Triomphe, Entombed, Dumb Luck, Al Rojo Vivo, Yodelburg and Outback at Ya!
But will they have a souvenir stand with Potatoland shirts at the exit?
We do know the exit will feature photo-opportunities where guests can step into scenes from the animated Mickey Mouse cartoon shorts the just saw scenes from and pose with friends and family. Look for sets from Yodelburg, Potatoland, Entomed, and Panda-monium.
Sounds like a perfect way to chill and soak up a little extra Mickey magic before or after your big ride on Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway or before you travel to the distant planet of Batuu in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
