Disney shares first glimpse of neon marque above Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway

Let there be light

Disney gave us our first nighttime look at the new marque for Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway Friday.


With a little help from Goofy the marque's neon tubes glow and animate in a fashion you could only see in Hollywood.

The sign features blinking bulbs with depictions of Mickey and Minnie waving in fluorescent colors.


The new ride will take riders inside a Mickey mouse short titled "Perfect Picnic."


"You'll join Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and more on a family-friendly adventure featuring dazzling visual effects, a lovable theme song, and surprising twists and turns," Disney said in an official blog post.

The ride took over the Chinese theater that was once home to The Great Movie Ride.


This new attraction will be a first for Disney as it is the first ride-through attraction to feature Mickey and friends.


We have always seen the leader of the band in shows like Mickey's Philarmagic and The Mickey Mouse Revue. But now we will be able to ride side-by-side in a cartoon world with our favorite pals.


The zany attraction opens at Dinsey's Hollywood Studios on March 4.


Guests can make FastPass+ reservations for the ride using the My Disney Experience mobile app.
