Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for these Runaway Railway Easter Eggs!
Walt Disney World Resort is filled with Easter Eggs — those hidden gems built into the architecture and design of the parks and resorts to surprise and delight us. The most famous Easter eggs for Disney fans are the “Hidden Mickeys” in plain sight, and sometimes not-so-plain sight, that make each visit to a Disney property a scavenger hunt.
The newest attraction at Walt Disney World — Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway at Disney’s Hollywood Studios does not disappoint when it comes to Easter Eggs. We’re sure Disney fans will be riding over and over to spot some of the hidden gems that fill the ride with Disney history.
While it will likely take many times through the attraction to spot them all, here are just a few of those Easter Eggs, brought to us by the Walt Disney World Public Relations staff:
- A newspaper features the headline “Oswald Wins!” – a reference to Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, the cartoon character created by Walt Disney that predates Mickey Mouse.
- The Iwerks and Uwerks Waterworks water treatment plant is named for Disney Legend Ub Iwerks, the animator credited with sketching Mickey Mouse for the first time.
- The 1401 Flower Shop is an homage to Walt Disney Imagineering’s headquarters in Glendale, Calif.
- The numbers 1901 and 1928 can be seen inside the attraction; these are references to Walt Disney’s and Mickey Mouse’s birth years, respectively.
