Today is Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse’s birthday and Disneyland has announced the official reopening date of Mickey’s Toontown in celebration of the occasion – March 8, 2023.
The Disney Parks Blog has just shared more of a look at what guests will see and experience once the “ambitiously” reimagined land reopens on March 8th. Take a look below for all of the details!
The reimagined Mickey’s Toontown will provide open, grassy play spaces for everyone to unwind, starting with CenTOONial Park, the first space guests will see when they enter the land. CenTOONial Park will be anchored by two new interactive play experiences; a beautiful fountain featuring water tables designed for play that invite guests to have a sensory experience, plus a nearby dreaming tree with sculpted tree roots providing an opportunity for children to crawl and explore.
As you may have previously read, Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway will begin welcoming guests on January 27th, when the Disney 100 Years of Wonder Celebration kicks off at Disneyland.
Check out the upcoming Goofy’s How-To-Play Yard in the new aerial artist rendering of the area above.
Dedicated to all things play, Goofy’s How-To-Play Yard incorporates a whimsical sound garden where kids will discover new ways to make wacky noises, as well as enjoy an all-new, elevated clubhouse.
When you step inside Goofy’s House, you’ll find a fun, interactive candy-making contraption that only Goofy could imagine! The confectionery contraption begins high outside of Goofy’s home, as drips of honey fall from a beehive onto a chute that slides the colorful drops around and down into the home. From there, junior candymakers will help Goofy make the candy, and the silly sounds of household appliances will combine to make a truly Goofy symphony.
Donald’s Boat will be perched in the duck pond of the Goof homestead. Imagine larger-than-life spinning water lilies, balance beams and rocking toys at Donald’s Duck Pond that will help little ones get the wiggles out. Kids will definitely love making a splash in this space! You also can look into the boat through the portholes to witness bubbles of fun inside the flooded vessel and interact with some familiar ducklings including Huey, Dewey, Louie, and Webby.
Gadget’s Go Coaster is being rethemed into Chip ‘n’ Dale’s GADGETcoaster, “where Mickey’s Toontown’s favorite tinkerer, Gadget Hackwrench, has created a one-of-a-kind, fun-sized coaster for the town’s tiniest citizens.”
Mickey’s House and Minnie’s Houses will remain as a self-guided tour and if Mickey and Minnie happen to be home during your visit, guests will be able to have a visit and take a photo.
Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin will also return, where guests board Lenny the Cab and spin through the streets and alleys of Toontown following the adventures of Roger Rabbit.
Two new snack spots are coming to the land as well: Café Daisy, where Daisy Duck serves up diner classics at her sidewalk table eatery; and the Toontown Farmers Market at Good Boy! Grocers, a friendly roadside stand, offering grab-and-go drinks and treats.
