Disneyland Resort has confirmed that due to issues with construction related to recent winter storms, the reopening of Mickey’s Toontown has been pushed back by nearly two weeks.
“Due to heavy winter storms that impacted our construction momentum we are adjusting the reopening date of Mickey’s Toontown to March 19,” Disneyland told the Orange County Register. “We can’t wait for our guests to visit and experience the reimagined land.”
The key addition in the reimagined area is the new Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway trackless dark ride, which opened on January 27.
Mickey’s Toontown will have more open, grassy play spaces including 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 fountain featuring water tables designed for play and a dreaming tree with sculpted roots for children to crawl through.
Goofy’s house and Donald’s Boat have been upgraded. Behind Goofy’s house will be Goofy’s How-To-Play Yard.
Goofy’s How-To-Play Yard includes a sound garden and an elevated clubhouse.
Inside Goofy’s house will be an interactive candy-making machine. It actually 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, young candymakers can help Goofy make the candy.
Donald’s Boat has crashed into a duck pond, creating a water play area called Donald’s Duck Pond featuring giant spinning water lilies, balance beams, and rocking toys. Guests can look into the flooded boat through the portholes and interact with Huey, Dewey, Louie, and Webby.
Gadget’s Go Coaster will become Chip ‘n’ Dale’s Gadget Coaster, still drawing inspiration from the character of Gadget Hackwrench, who has created a one-of-a-kind, fun-sized coaster for her friends, Chip and Dale.
At Mickey’s House and Minnie’s House, guests will once again be able to step right into their homes and enjoy a self-guided tour. Mickey and Minnie will also return to greeting guests inside.
Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin, which was updated before the land closed,will also return.
The land’s two new restaurants are Café Daisy, where Daisy Duck serves up diner classics at her sidewalk table eatery, and the Toontown Farmers Market at Good Boy! Grocers, a roadside stand offering grab-and-go drinks and treats.
As previously reported, Chip ‘n’ Dale’s Treehouse and the old character fountains were demolished. For a look back on what Mickey’s Toontown looked like before it closed in March 2022, check out our full tour of the land.
We got our first look into the updated land when Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway opened last month. Most of the area remains closed, however.
