Come and experience new magic at Disneyland Resort Mickey’s Toontown with a sneak peek on what to expect when the land reopens in 2023 (closing March 9, 2022).
Mickey’s Toontown was first introduced to us in 1993 when it became an official land in Disneyland Park. In 2023 we’ll see a reimagined space and plenty of ways to interact with our favorite pals at Disneyland Resort. Keep reading for more details.
We first saw Mickey’s Toontown in 1993, but legend says its roots go back to 1928. This was when Mickey Mouse was looking for a space away from the hustle of Hollywood. He found the perfect home in a quiet Toon suburb where he was soon joined by his best pals.
For decades this secluded suburb was kept a secret from all visitors to Disneyland Resort. But in 1990, the pals all decided that they wanted to open the gates to non-Toon guests. Disneyland guests have been enjoying the fun, the gags, the laughs and the thrills ever since.
Mickey’s Toontown Attractions
Mickey’s Toontown quickly became a hang out for families and little ones with popular attractions and play spaces. See how you can ride all your favorites with our Disneyland Plan ride guide.
When Mickey’s Toontown closes for its new look in March 2022 we’ll be leaving behind some area attractions.
Which ones will stay and which ones will go?
I’ve included my guesses below and will continue to update with Disneyland’s official information as it is announced.
Chip ‘n Dale Treehouse
My guess, this goes. In Disneyland’s first update of 2022 this attraction is absent from any commentary.
Concept art shows this attraction being removed for possibly a new pathway between Mickey’s Toontown and Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, as first noted by my friend at Mice Chat.
Disneyland officially announced this attraction will stay but will be “reimagined in new and exciting ways.” My guess, this stays as it’s visible in the first concept art images.
What do you think, should Donald’s Boat stay or go?
Gadget’s Go Coaster
Disneyland officially announced this attraction will stay but will be “reimagined in new and exciting ways.” My guess back in 2021 was right on point: this stays but gets a new theme to something more relevant to today’s kids.
What type of coaster do you think this should be?
Disneyland officially announced this attraction will stay but will be “reimagined in new and exciting ways.” My guess, this stays as visible in the concept art.
But remember, concept art isn’t always the final look. Many things can change in the process of a project.
Disneyland officially announced this attraction will stay! My guess, this stays 100%. Mickey’s house is a staple and highlight of Mickey’s Toontown.
I am hoping the meet and greet area gets a redo in this process as well. I’m ready for a new look there.
Disneyland officially announced this attraction will stay! My guess, this stays 100%. Along with Mickey’s house, Minnie’s place is always busy and a beautiful part of Toontown.
I love her pink house and the outdoor meet and greet with the tea party set up.
Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin
Disneyland officially announced this attraction will stay! My guess was this goes. I was wrong but we have seen some adjustments to this oldie but goodie.
I would have been okay either way. I enjoy the attraction but it seems more random and out of place as time goes on.
What new attractions can we expect in 2023 at the reopening of Mickey’s Toontown?
These confirmed attractions are coming your way! Stay TOONed as I add and edit once we hear more from Disney directly.
Mickey & Minnieâ€™s Runaway Railway
The new headlining attraction for Mickey’s Toontown has been in the works for quite some time and has already opened at Walt Disney World.
This new ride features none other than Mickey Mouse and friends.
This new area will greet families as they enter Mickey’s Toontown, with the promise of more green space and grass to play on and relax.
CenTOONial Park will feature interactive play experiences including a fountain and splash pad area. The area also lights up at night which. might mean we’ll get longer hours for this area of the park that typically opens late and closes early.
Disney Park’s Blog shares another feature of CenTOONial Park, “A nearby dreaming tree will be inspired by the tree a young Walt Disney would daydream under in his hometown. Sculpted tree roots will provide an opportunity for children to play, crawl and explore, and undulating topography will offer rolling hills and a place to sit and dream.”
Food & Dining in Toontown
Mickey’s Toontown has never been a dining destination, in my opinion. Unless you’re talking about soft serve ice cream with rainbow sprinkles. That’s my favorite. And it was the only place to get it.
All the dining options remained closed when Disneyland reopened in 2021 and I’d like to see a whole new refresh of the menus and dining areas in this land.
While the themes of these quick service eateries were on point, the menus were basic and tired.
Not to be confused with Clarabelle’s Hand Scooped Ice cream at California Adventure Park. This is the one with soft serve ice cream and rainbow sprinkles. Please Disney, keep that.
It’s the only thing basic I like in this land when we’re talking food and treats.
Tucked in the food court area of Mickeyâ€™s Toontown is Daisy’s Diner.
Individual pizzas is enough to serve one person. This dining option holds steady on my list of Disneyland budget food.
Pluto’s Dog House
This offers a kid favorite food staple: hot dogs.
It’s also on my list of the best kid meals at Disneyland, but anyone can eat and enjoy a dog here.
Toontown Characters & More
Youâ€™d think weâ€™d be done by now, but thereâ€™s still more to explore inside Mickey’s Toontown. One popular thing to do inside this little town is to meet your favorite Disney characters.
Thereâ€™s quite a few Disney favorites you can meet. Shop all your favorite Mickey Mouse merchandise here before you go.
