The highly anticipated Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway debuted earlier this week, and as the first-ever Mickey-themed ride, the excitement was in the air. It’s hard to believe that there has never actually been a ride centered around Mickey Mouse at Disney World Orlando until now; with all the updates and construction currently underway and in the years to come, the new attraction was a welcome addition. Fans were pleasantly surprised at how impressive the new tech was, and of course, flocked to Twitter to share their reactions.

Even for a kids’ ride, Disney seemed to spare no expense in making the new ride a memorable one for all who experience it — even the adults.

The attraction boasted the first-ever “2½-D” effects that didn’t require glasses. It also toted multi-dimensions, state-of-the-art tech, and dazzling visual effects anticipated to captivate young riders.

The first announcement of the new ride came just in time for Mickey and Minnie’s 90th birthday, and at their age, they’re still going on adventures together. Talk about couple goals

While guests were first apprehensive of The Great Movie ride being replaced, reactions were overwhelmingly positive on the morning of the ride’s debut and the days following.

This guest expressed her joy and surprise at the ride, particularly the rope drop.

The trackless dark ride consists of four trains that travel through different rooms, showcasing clips of the mouse duos many adventures.

The ride itself is not long, however, and this guest felt the tradeoff for the 30-minute Great Movie ride wasn’t quite worth it.

While you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t know who Mickey Mouse is, not everyone is savvy on his entire history.

This fan felt that the new ride made more sense if you had an understanding of the various Mickey and Minnie shorts that feature their whirlwind adventures.

There’s only one way to find out what the ride is like for sure, and that’s to test it out yourself; a three-day park ticket discount is currently running for Florida residents — and if that isn't the perfect excuse to visit the "Happiest Place on Earth", we don't know what is!
