Last Day for ‘The Great Movie Ride’ and ‘Ellen’s Energy Adventure’ at Walt Disney World

Today is the last day that The Great Movie Ride and Ellen’s Energy Adventure will be open at Walt Disney World. The Great Movie Ride is located at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Ellen’s Energy Adventure is located at Epcot.

The Great Movie Ride will be closing to make way for the new Mickey and Minnie ride coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The new ride will be called Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway and will feature a new story, theme song and take you inside a Mickey cartoon short. The ride will start with a cartoon where Mickey and Minnie are headed to a picnic and ride next to a train, which Goofy is driving. You’ll get to step onto Goofy’s train for the ride.

No 3D glasses will be needed; Disney is inventing new technology to transform the ride into a dimensional design.

Disney announced today that Ellen’s Energy Adventure and the University of Energy will close to make way for construction of a new Guardians of the Galaxy attraction at Epcot.
