Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway confirmed

That's an example of the special effect in use. Parallax 3D changes the viewing angle displayed in sync with your motion giving the illusion of 3D.

It's in use on ToT:GotG:MB. As the 'elevator' bobs up and down, the flat image changes in sync. It only works for the people whose position matches the intended camera angle. If you were off to the side or not moving in sync with the video, you wouldn't see it as 3D.

MMRR is supposed to use this as well as projection-mapping the images onto 3D physical sets for even greater effect.

This is incredible. Projection mapping on moving objects does looks like magic
:) I can imagine the gorgeous theater set design possibilities.

Projection mapping on moving objects is already being done, just not in a ride yet. Just went to Justin Timberlake's Man of the Wood's tour the other day and some of the projection mapping they had going on on moving objects was crazy. Putting that into a ride perspective, it should be very captivating.

I feel like this ride will be like sensory overload.

This ride is a tricky one as we have no idea how far along it is. I'd imagine they have the new ride layout done for the most part and th rest is insane projection screens that need to go in around it. I think this will open around May 2019 when DL gets its galaxies edge opening.
I 100% agree, as they would probably want this open for the 30th anniversary of DHS.

I wish it was a case of “open as soon as possible, DHS only has 4 actual rides...”

The only thing that could bring me to Hollywood Studios in May 2019 would be this ride opening. I know I'll be missing Star Wars, and I can wait until the next time for Toy Story Land.

Ballpark-ish. Mickey may soft in August. Possibly.
Can you say if Galaxy's Edge is still expected to open in Q4 in WDW or is an opening after October more likely?

I am glad that MMRR will be open before SW:GE! Of course, if they still had GMR and MMRR that would be better.

I am most curious about paid previews. If SWGE has paid previews for the GP in the early fall (e.g., October) it would provide a very strong reason for many people to visit during that time (depending on how exorbitant the prices are, of course).
