A fan-favorite land from Disneyland in California has finally returned and young Disney Parks fans are overjoyed. More than 30 years after its initial debut, Mickey’s Toontown has reopened after a long hiatus, now featuring a refurbished environment with new attractions like Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway!
The reimagined Mickey’s Toontown was intentionally designed by Walt Disney Imagineering to try to remove as many barriers to play as possible, with more open green spaces for gathering and play. Guests can now experience thoughtful elements for different needs, including companion restrooms, a quieter area for decompression, and a curb-free land that helps make navigation easier for guests of differing abilities.The Walt Disney Company
Some of the newly designed areas in Mickey’s Toontown include:
The Walt Disney Company
- CenTOONial Park: The first space guests see when they enter the land is anchored by two new interactive play experiences: a stunning fountain featuring water tables designed for play, inviting guests to have a sensory experience, plus a dreaming tree with sculpted roots for kids to crawl around and explore.
- Goofy’s How-To-Play Yard: In the whimsical sound garden, kids can discover new ways to make wacky noises, or play in an all-new, elevated clubhouse. Inside Goofy’s House, guests can help operate a fun, interactive candy-making contraption that only Goofy could imagine.
- Donald’s Duck Pond: Little ones can get the wiggles out and make a splash. Perched in the duck pond, Donald’s Boat is surrounded by larger-than-life spinning water lilies, balance beams, and rocking toys. Explorers can peer through the boat’s portholes to witness bubbles of fun inside featuring familiar ducklings Huey, Dewey, Louie, and Webby.
Mickey’s Toontown is home to the new attraction Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, which opened January 27. With no age/height restriction, families can travel together into the wacky and unpredictable cartoon world of Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse. Now, with the reopening of the reimagined Mickey’s Toontown, the young and the young at heart can once again enjoy returning attractions including Mickey’s House, Minnie’s House, and Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin. Plus, the fun-sized attraction has transformed into Chip ‘n’ Dale’s GADGETcoaster, where guests can go nuts on a coaster created by the resident tinkerer of Mickey’s Toontown, Gadget Hackwrench.The Walt Disney Company
