You can see "classic" Mickey every step you take in all of the parks. I'm very excited to have a fresh take, especially since those cartoons have more personality and fun than the bland goody two shoes corporate mascot that Mickey is usually presented as. It's no wonder they're using them for a ride that's supposed to be fun. Anything else would have felt very stale. I know people wanted a standard dark ride going through the history of Mickey cartoons but that would have gotten stale VERY fast.

This ride is far more innovative than you even know.

That part I don't get... a classic Mickey design... or hell do different Mickey's of different eras teaming up to stop [insert bad guy here] could have even worked...
For some reason I thought this ride would have you go into the world of the iconic Mickey shorts from over the years like the Great Movie Ride but with Mickey. It would have been really cool and exciting to see those kinda creepy worlds from the 1920s/30s brought to life like in that upcoming game Cuphead.

Steamboat Willie Mickey would have been cool to see.

Go watch Thru the Mirror, Clock Cleaners, and The Mad Doctor and get back to me


Whats this?! Turns out Walt Disney wasn't about mundane "safe" "family friendly" corporate garbage like the current leadership in the company would have you believe!

Neo, I know we don't always agree but when we do... WE DO!

And yes, you're right. Those Disney shorts from the early years were dark as hell.

Exactly, cartoons from the 1930s.

The new shorts brought life back in to the character that's been missing for decades, whereas things like Mickey Mouse Clubhouse are as dull as ever even if they stick to the standard design.

Yeah, hot spit. No doubt the screens will be amazing. Better than those pesky AAs that need so much maintenance.

Next up: Tiki Birds in Flight using that great Soarin' technology!

The company hasn't ever really stopped making Mickey shorts... Runaway Brain... oh forget it.
Most of the shorts they made weren't as accessible to the masses as the new ones. They're very well done if you have an open mind.

This ride is more than just screens btw.

I personally love the new Mickey style they're basing this on. It strikes a good balance of new being in a way that's both appealing to adults and kids. Is it's blockbuster movie style and tone? Nope, but Mickey has never really been that. Mickey mostly been TV. What the new style brings is a great pace, humor and action, which I think could be very fitting for a ride.

I'll keep my hopes up for this one...

Correct. The new Mickey shorts are heavy on the humor and the action with a fast pace...exactly the tone needed for a fun ride. It's a no brainer.

I'm blown away that this ride is going to be in the bizarre almost Ren & Stimpy style of that awful cartoon. What a let down.

Can't wait to take my kids through this...






Can't wait...
Wow that looks truly awful...
I'm just crossing my fingers now that this will completely surprise me losing the GMR sucks hopefully somehow this will blow Me away.
It's a shame they couldn't have built it somewhere else
