Disney has announced a reopen date for the revamp of Mickey’s Toontown at Disneyland Resort, and it will happen on March 8, 2023.
It was announced around this time in 2021 that Mickey’s Toontown at Disneyland would be closing for a complete reimagining of the space, and in March 2022, it closed to guests.
When the area reopens on March 8, here’s what to expect:
CenTOONial Park, the first space guests will see when they enter the land, will feature open, grassy play spaces.
It 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; and a nearby dreaming tree with sculpted tree roots providing an opportunity for children to crawl and explore.
Over in Goofy’s neck of the woods, you’ll find Goofy’s How-To-Play Yard, which incorporates a whimsical sound garden where kids will discover new ways to make wacky noises, as well as enjoy an all-new, elevated clubhouse.
Step inside Goofy’s House, and you’ll find a fun, interactive candy-making contraption that only Goofy could imagine. It 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.
Here is a new aerial rendering of the area:
As you can see on the right side of the image, Donald’s Boat will be perched in the duck pond of the Goofy homestead, with 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.
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.
Over at Mickey’s House and Minnie’s House, you’ll once again be able to step right into their homes and enjoy a self-guided tour as you discover special surprises in every room. You may even be able to visit with Mickey and Minnie while you’re there, should they be home.
Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin will also return, where you can board Lenny the Cab and spin through the streets and alleys of Toontown as you follow the adventures of Roger Rabbit.
Young thrill-seekers can enjoy 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.
It’s easy to build an appetite when playing, and Mickey’s Toontown will have two areas to grab a bite:
At Café Daisy, acclaimed culinary expert, Daisy Duck, will serve up diner classics at her sidewalk table eatery.
And for a quick snack, Toontown Farmers Market at Good Boy! Grocers, a friendly roadside stand, will offer grab-and-go drinks and treats.
Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway
Mickey’s Toontown will also be home to the Disneyland version of “Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway!” which is a new attraction for the park.
Step inside the El CapiTOON Theater, and enter the wacky and unpredictable cartoon world of Mickey and Minnie, where you’ll board a train with Goofy as the engineer. One magical moment after the next leads you to a zany, out-of-control adventure filled with surprising twists and turns that the entire family will enjoy.
We’ll have more on this attraction when it opens January 27, 2023, in time for the kick-off of the “Disney 100 Years of Wonder Celebration” at Disneyland Resort.
