Though the BIG news out of Disney's Hollywood Studios today is the grand opening of Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway, there are also some other important changes happening at this park that you might want to know about that are going in to effect today! From the cutting of attraction hours ALREADY at Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway to some additional options for early morning visitors to the park, here are all the changes happening now you'll want to know about!
1. Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway will NOT operate during Extra Magic Hours
Disney confirmed this week that, along with Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, brand new attraction Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway will also not be operating during Extra Magic Hours. Currently, Disney's Hollywood Studios only has evening Extra Magic Hours available, which have been historically scheduled for Sunday for two hours after regular park close. It is unclear if this change is being made due to expected maintenance times on this attraction, or if this is another cut due to budget constraints at this park.
2. New trivia mode available as part of Play Disney Parks app
