The 10 BIG Updates from Walt Disney World This Week (November 12-18)

9. Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway confirmed for Fall 2019 opening

Though we had already assumed as much, it was confirmed this week that Disney is targetting a fall 2019 opening window for Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway, putting this new attraction opening right at the same time as the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. 

10. PhotoPass photographers set to be replaced by machines starting this month

News broke this week that beginning later this month Disney will be removing PhotoPass photographers and installing an automated camera system at the Tinker Bell meet and greet at the Town Square Theater area of the Magic Kingdom. This automated camera system will then photograph guests from one single angle as they have their character interaction at specific intervals, giving guests a range of shots of the experience. Once the character interaction is over guests will be able to view their photos on the machine (much like they view on-ride photos at Splash Mountain or Test Track after riding), and can then touch their MagicBand to the machine to tie the photographs to their My Disney Experience account.
