Wondrous Journeys” at Disneyland Park which will take Guests on an epic adventure through 100 years of Walt Disney Animation Studios storytelling, with fireworks on select nights.

Disney 100 Wonderous Journey

Disneyland will get its very own “Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway” attraction on January 27, which is part of a larger Mickey’s Toontown reimagining (which reopens March 8).

Inside the El CapiTOON Theater (which houses an exhibit unique to Disneyland), this family-friendly experience transports you into the wacky and unpredictable cartoon world of Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, where you’ll board a train engineered by Goofy and embark on a zany adventure.

It will use a virtual queue when it first opens, with registration times at 7am and 1pm daily on the Disneyland app, along with having an Individual Lightning Lane option. There will be no traditional standby on opening day.

Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway

The Disney Gallery on Main Street, U.S.A., at Disneyland park will house a new exhibit called “Disney 100 Years of Wonder,” inspired by Walt Disney’s vision for Disneyland to be where his films come to life.

Inside you’ll see beautiful artwork created by original Disney animators for some of Walt’s early films, alongside artwork concepted by original Disney Imagineers to recreate those stories in the park, and memorabilia from Walt’s life.
