New Runaway Railway Designer Mickey Ears Unveiled In Celebration of Tomorrow’s Opening!
With only a day to go until the opening of Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway at Disney’s Hollywood Studios (March 4th), Disney just unveiled the latest addition in the Disney Parks Designer Ear Collection! The creation of Imagineer Kevin Rafferty (who is also Executive Creative Director of the attraction), this ear hat will be released on March 5th at Disney World Resort and online at shopDisney.
You can hop onto this wacky ride in style with this vibrant ear hat featuring Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse in the setting “Perfect Picnic.” This is the cartoon featured in the finale of this new ride. Our favorite feature is that the hat lights up with fireworks at the flip of a switch.
The back of the ear hat features the saying “Nothing Can Stop Us Now” from the attraction’s loveable theme song and displays a picturesque car ride inside the hat itself!
The hat can be found at the locations listed below or at shopDisney.com.

Only 1 Day To Go!
Opening March 4, Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway will take guests of all ages on a whirlwind ride through a world where the rules of physics don’t apply!
