So anyone that has ridden the ride...how does the song go? Can anyone recall?

Given that review (which is basically the most detailed report we have) I’m very excited for this ride. I just want a POV or more detailed reports. I want to see this in execution, I have a lot of questions.

I really appreciate the name of the coaster in the carnival scene “The Great Moving Ride”

Another thing, we really haven’t heard much about the musical component of this attraction...it is a musical right?

Oh, there's a song as well? I vaguely remember hearing about that, now that you mention it. I think that was back around ... D23 2017?
Yeah, this has a theme song, like small world. Apparently the ride is a musical...the song is called “Nothing is going to stop us now”

If you want an example of how these shorts use music here is a prime example and one of my favorites I used this example before but it really is perfect:

Oh, and credit to Mickey Mouse on YT (that was weird to type).

Sounds like this might be everything everyone hoped for!
If it were elsewhere maybe.

More from someone I trust; Great preshow and load. After which the ride was fun but an anticlimax. Would ride again though. The much touted 2.5D visuals were a letdown and seem to be more of a public relations stunt. I’ll let others discuss exactly what is done visually. Fun ride, but not as good or enjoyable as what it replaced.

Sure, but at least Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway® is timeless, relevant, family, and Disney®!

I’m going to make a controversial hypothetical: Let’s say GMR was replaced with Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride. One could say Toad wouldn’t be “as good” but it would definitely be more fun and a more enjoyable offering. Setting aside the “they could have had both” argument, if they had this opportunity to replace GMR with a more fun ride, how could that be bad? It could be bad if it broke theme, but fortunately MMRR is more appropriate for the spot than Toad.
