Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway to Roll into Disneyland Park 

"This first major Mickey-themed ride-through attraction at Disneyland park will put you inside the wacky and unpredictable world of a Mickey Mouse cartoon short where anything can happen! Once you step into the cartoon world of Mickey and Minnie, you’ll board a train with Goofy as the engineer. Then, one magical moment after the next leads you to a zany, out-of-control adventure filled with surprising twists and turns."

Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway Announced for ToonTown at Disneyland 
April 19, 2019 

"It’s official, Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway is headed to ToonTown. The attraction will be based upon the version opening next spring at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida. The show building will be located behind the Gag Factory and will open sometime in 2022. 

While the name may sound like Big Thunder, it’s actually a mild family dark ride attraction using modern digital projection technology and physical sets. With Goofy as the engineer, you follow Mickey and Minnie on a wild adventure. The animation is done in the new 'cute' style for the classic Disney characters."
