Disneyland is home to two theme parks Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. Each Disney Park includes something for Guests of all ages and sizes. While Disneyland is known for thrilling attractions, wonderful shows, and fireworks, famous character meets and greets, and much more, some Guests still find issues during their Disney trip.

Disneyland Park is the brainchild of Walt Disney himself, with attractions such as “it’s a small world,” Jungle Cruise, Haunted Mansion, Space Mountain, and Pirates of the Caribbean. Disneyland Park is split into different lands such as Frontierland, Adventureland, and much more. Disneyland opened Mickey’s Toontown, featuring a special meet and greet with Mickey and his favorite friends such as Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Minnie Mouse, and others. Disney Guests can also walk inside Mickey and Minnies House, and join Mickey and Minnie on the newest attraction, Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway.

In a social media post, Several Disneyland Guests complain about Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway. Guests complain that the ride vehicles are to shallow for Guests. Guests were talking about sliding into other Guests or for taller Guests, it was completely uncomfortable.

“Does anyone else feel like the bench seats on the Runaway Railway ride vehicles are way too shallow? I went about two weeks ago, and the first thing we rode was RR since we were excited for the new ride. I’m a pretty small person, and it felt like sitting on one of those benches in r/HostileArchitecture to prevent people from getting comfortable at a bus stop. I can’t imagine how someone on the taller or larger side could fully sit down and be comfortable?”

Disney just opened Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway at Disneyland Park when it reopened its reimagined Toontown earlier this year. The beloved attraction has been open for a couple of years at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World Resort, and is one of the most popular rides at both theme park Resorts.

Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway is described like this: “Guests will step into the whimsical universe of a Mickey Mouse short and hitch a ride on Engineer Goofy’s train. What could possibly go wrong? Cue hilarious hijinks! A relaxing train ride suddenly turns into a zany, free-ranging romp through ever-changing and rearranging cartoon scenes. You’ll quickly learn that anything can happen in this out-of-control animated world. But don’t worry, with friends like Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, you’re bound to get back on track. All aboard!”

Do you think Disney should fix Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railways seats?
