Walt Disney World Offering Great Movie Ride Closure Merchandise

We announced previously that The Great Movie Ride at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World would be closing permanently this August in 2017.  The attraction is located inside the replica of the Chinese Theater from Hollywood, California and located in the center of the theme park.  The attraction is closing forever on August 13th in order for a new Mickey and Minnie attraction to be created.  The new attraction is currently known as Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway.  It is expected to use some of the most cutting edge technology that has ever been used in the theme parks to create an extremely immersive experience for guests where they enter the cartoon world.


We are also excited to announce that to commemorate the closing of the beloved attraction, Disney will release limited merchandise exclusively branded for the closure.  The merchandise will include items like shirts, hats, Christmas ornaments and more.  The new, limited merchandise will be available at Walt Disney World soon.  The merchandise is also expected to be available online starting on August 10th, 2017.  This is expected to be extremely popular merchandise and will only be available until it runs out, so you will want to snag yours quickly.

Who plans to buy up some of the limited merchandise?  Who will be extremely sad to see The Great Movie Ride close forever?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
