ORLANDO, Fla. -- Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway won't be opening at Disney's Hollywood Studios this year, after all.

The Mickey-themed dark ride, which was set for a 2019 opening, will now debut spring 2020, Disney revealed Friday. No reason for the delay was given.

The update came as Disney announced that Disneyland would be getting its own version of the ride in 2022.

Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway will transport riders into a cartoon short, where they'll join Mickey and his friends on a "zany, out-of-control" adventure. The ride will feature special visual effects, using technology Disney is calling "2 and half D."

At Hollywood Studios, Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway is being built inside the Chinese Theatre, the former site of The Great Movie Ride, which closed August 2017. 

The theme park is gearing up for the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. The new themed land will open August 29. Disneyland will get the first peek at the land, with its version set to open May 31.
