Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway confirmed

I really enjoy it while feeling it’s really lackluster at the same time. Perhaps if it was an addition rather than a replacement I would feel differently. I really really miss GMR.

I haven't been on it yet, but that's the impression I've gotten from watching ride videos. It looks fun and I'm looking forward to riding, but it also seems like it could have been significantly better in many ways. I think the addition vs. replacement is a big part of that because of course people are going to compare it to GMR and it just falls short.

I think I set my expectations a bit high because I watched the YouTube videos.... It looked better on video than in person, in my opinion at least. It didn't showcase all the ugly black walls and ceilings and open space.

All the kids (5-14 age range) in my immediate and extended family loved Runaway Railway. They said it was so cool. The adults are mixed.

I hope they could make some changes on the Disneyland version cause they are not working with an existing show building. Take out the tornado scene cause it's useless.

When I rode it one of the first things I noticed was how high the ceilings were... they just felt unnecessarily high (obviously a product of re-using the show building). I'll be interested to see if the ceilings become lower in the DLR version. Based on what we've see with construction so far, the ceilings look to be equally high, but it's possible office space will be built as a level 2.

The office space is only on one part of the building, it does not span the entire building.

What row did you sit in? After three rides I found the middle and back are best while the front is a little before the action.

Why, when there are so many sets and show activities to see would you be spending your time looking at the ceiling.

Because it's so glaring that it's distracting?
Only if you are looking up and that brings up the question of why are you looking up with so many bright colors and actions happening in level vision? There was a huge uproar about the Mermaid ride and it's naked ceiling. I tried more then once to have the ceiling bother me during the ride and it had no affect at all. I was there to see the show, not the underside of the roof.

If you lowered the ceilings they would just become more noticeable
