When it comes to staying on Walt Disney World Resort property, one of the best privileges by far is rope-dropping. Rope-dropping gives Guests the best chance at enjoying the most popular attractions before the lines get unbearably long.
However, the Guests who got to Hollywood Studios early enough for rope-dropping this morning were severely disappointed when they saw that two of the Disney Park’s best attractions were down.
The theme park’s newest attraction, Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, was listed as ‘Temporarily Closed’ this morning right as Hollywood Studios opened.
Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway is located in Hollywood Studios’ Hollywood Boulevard area in the Chinese Theater replica. It’s categorized by the revolutionary visual technology used, which consists of a fantastic combination of visual and practical effects.
However, the closure was genuinely temporary, and it only lasted for approximately an hour. That being said, as soon as the ride was up and running again, the line quickly grew, ruining any chance the rope droppers had!
Over in Toy Story Land, the Slinky Dog Dash roller coaster was also listed as ‘Temporarily Closed’ when the Disney Park opened this morning.
Slinky Dog Dash is an exciting thrill ride full of fun twists, turns, and drops! Like Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, the closure also lasted approximately an hour and is currently hosting incredibly long lines (at the time of this article’s publication).
At the time of this article’s publication, both Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway and Slinky Dog Dash are up and running, with no signs of slowing down again. All’s well that ends well in Walt Disney World!
