With the reimagining of Mickey’s Toontown fully underway, we get our first look at the project’s final form from the D23 Expo in Anaheim, CA. We have several new updates on the project as seen in a scale model on display on the showfloor. We’ve seen a couple of new restaurants planned for the land and now, let’s take a look at one of the returning attractions.
The model is broken up into pieces by area, with this being the neighborhood area where Goofy and Donald live. Just off the right edge of this model is an attraction that will be returning under a slightly different name.
Although the coaster itself isn’t shown in the model, the signs for the queue entrance tell us that Chip ‘n’ Dale’s Gadget Coaster will be located just off the present horizon. This is a renaming from the former Gadget’s Go Coaster, which was based on a character from “Chip ‘n’ Dale Rescue Rangers.”
Gadget Hackwrench was known for making ingenious contraptions out of found objects and the coaster is built to resemble being designed by her. It appears with this renaming that the theme and aesthetic will likely be kept through the reimagining, though removing the references to a character that is no longer relevant to kids today.
