PHOTOS, VIDEO: Touring the Newly-Reimagined Goofy’s How-to-Play Yard in Mickey’s Toontown at Disneyland

Goofy’s House has been transformed yet again in Mickey’s Toontown at Disneyland, this time becoming Goofy’s How-to-Play Yard, a fun and detailed play area for kids ages 2 to 12. Naturally we took a stroll through ourselves to bring you all the fun details!

You can take a tour of Goofy’s How-to-Play Yard above courtesy of our YouTube channel, or keep reading for photos and descriptions.


The new entrance sign is on a pergola, with some rather goofy-looking writing. This also serves as the entrance to Donald’s Duck Pond.

Right inside, we see chalk drawings of a train on the pathway into the house.

More chalk of footsteps for both Goofy and Max run throughout the outdoor area.

There’s a little tent outside covered in buttons and stitched together that kids can crawl through.

Right at the entrance is a stack of beehives, with honey clearly leaking out of a few.

Inside the house, we see several portraits of Goofy and Max through the years. First we see Mickey and Minnie meeting baby Max for the first time, and Goofy looking as proud a parent as ever!

Next Goofy and Max posed together for a fancy family portrait like you’d get at Sears in the 1980s and 90s. Baseballs accent the four corners of the frame.

In “A Goofy Movie,” Goofy wants to take Max on one more fishing trip, which he used to take with his own father and with Max as a kid. Here we see one of those trips with a younger Max bringing in quite the catch!

We see these tracks with balls running throughout the house to keep things dynamic. Above there are boxes for Max’s baby clothes.

A model ship also sits on a shelf.

If you look way up, you can see a portrait of Goofy with Mickey and Donald.

We can see a bit more wide of a view inside the house now, with lots of portraits and interactive features with the balls.

To dispatch some balls, which are candy flavors, just twist the lever in the chosen direction.

They might first end up at the record player, where you use the wheel to get them on over to the oven next door.

The kitchen is full of fun interactive elements like this oven with a crank to rotate the balls within.

Lots of dishes are precariously perched in this china cabinet too. Sometimes the balls will bounce and drop through here too.

Another portrait shows Max, Huey, Webby, and Gosalyn painting birdhouses as Junior Woodchucks. Daisy is supervising.

More balls spin through this giant cylinder above the china cabinet.

Some even end up in the blender of all places.

You can heat some of the balls up in this oven, which has four settings — Not Hot, Hot, Hotter, and Hottest!

The center tray will be home to the balls which roll in, and the coil below will “heat” them up.

Outside at Fort Max is a small rainbow slide for kiddos to enjoy.

Several of Max’s Bigfoot traps are also part of the fort. Goofy and Max had to encounter Bigfoot during their travels in “A Goofy Movie.”

A look back at the house shows just how chaotic the Goofs live!

But it’s a fun chaos for sure.

We see a Goofy scarecrow next to his popcorn plants.

These colorful mailboxes recall the bright contrasting colors of the “Encanto” Casita.

Goofy has banners on the side of his house proclaiming “Candy makers wanted!”

Some of the light fixtures outside are recycled jelly jars. Good on the Goofs for going green.
