Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway confirmed

Ride vehicles will be like GMR vehicles that shrunk in the wash.

To all intents the train will look just like that at load; four GMR theatre cars but around half the size. Plus a fifth for reasons I won't go into yet.
The fifth wouldn't happen to be the train engine with Mickey and Minnie on it that, presumably, gets dislodged so the rest of the train is a 'runaway' would it? I imagine if there's no guests on the fifth it's being used in the ride's plot somehow.

I don't think WE'RE meant to be ON a train but I could be wrong. And it does sound like they're being creative with this.

EDIT: Just saw Martin's post. I guess we are then? Hmm.

I've reflected on this a bit more and have determined I am at peace with this approach. TGMR was a staple at DHS/MGM since opening and obviously fit perfectly in the park.

While I respect the argument that a massive refurb of TGMR should've been the preferred approach, MaMRR isn't such a bad option.

Disney was founded on Mickey. More specifically, it was founded on animation. Having this animated Mickey short be the central focus of the ride, ties nicely into Disney Hollywood Studios. My two cents.
I agree completely, and there really isn't a ride that's just based on Mickey besides Philarmagic! I think it's a great idea for an attraction and i think it fits in well!

Not the popular opinion, but I actually like that they used this Mickey. He has more personality and has been more fun then most iterations in recent memory. They might not look the best in the cartoons but it looks like they're toning down on the Ren and Stimpy-like facial expressions in this attraction based on (little) concept art and signs outside the theater right now.

speeding along independently of one another (with trackless vehicles)
But can these 1/2 sized GMR theater cars be made to travel at anything faster than a snail's pace?

I'm suddenly reminded of the old King Kong attraction at Universal. The literature talked about how Kong would "throw your cable car to the ground!" It sure sounded good on paper! Scary even! But the reality was that your car very, very slowly moved a few feet in a downward direction. Very disappointing! LOL!

I'm anticipating motion programming similar to Poohs Honey Hunt.
And Spider-Man / FoJ type of surround projections on walls and set pieces that move to simulate lots of speed [if I've been interpreting the insiders and Disney marketing correctly].

Start the fans!!
