Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California is getting a major overhaul in Mickey’s Toontown according to Disney Parks Blog. The domain has been closed since March 2022.
Josh D’Amaro, President of Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products, explained the reinvention of Toontown saying, “We are excited to leverage the powerful Disney brand, develop new stories and share even more experiences. magic with our guests. The newly redesigned Mickey’s Toontown will be a welcoming place where families and young guests can connect and play together in fun new ways.
Upon entering the new Mickey’s Toontown, guests will enter Centoonial Park which will provide guests with multiple experiences including a water play area that will delight guests differently day and night. The area is also said to include plenty of spaces for children to explore, play, splash around, and interact with family, friends, and favorite characters.
Additionally, Disneyland Resort in California will get its own Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway. Currently, at Walt Disney World, the attraction operates at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. This whimsical attraction takes you straight into a cartoon with the Fab Five among other characters. Chaos ensues and the guests are transported on a not-so-well-run train by Goofy. It is said not to be a full replica of the Hollywood Studio version of the attraction. The attraction is to be part of the space where the Gag Factory used to be. This is an exciting addition to Toontown when it reopens in 2023.
The original Gadget’s Go Coaster will be rebranded and renamed Chip ‘n’ Dale’s Gadget Coaster.
Car Roger Rabbit’s Toon Spin will remain in Toontown, but the attraction will receive an updated story. It has been shared that Jessica Rabbit will now be a private detective in the updated storyline.
It looks like Mickey and Minnie’s homes will return when the area reopens to the public. The refresh and reinvention of the area has been widely assumed. Goofy’s House and Donald’s Boat will offer more interactive experiences, including a water play area.
With all of these changes, it looks like the Toontown revamp will offer something for everyone, especially the preschool demographic. There will be plenty of places for all types of games for children of all ages.
