Mickey’s Toontown (Reopens 2023)

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 . NEWS: Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway will open January 27, 2023 with the rest of the land to follow on March 8, 2023! 

Mickey’s Toontown was first introduced to us in 1993 when it became an official land in Disneyland Park. In 2023 (almost exactly 30 years later!) we’ll see a reimagined space and plenty of ways to interact with our favorite pals at Disneyland Resort. Keep reading for more details.


Toontown New in 2023


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 closed for its new look on last spring (exact closured date was March 9, 2022) it reimagined the space to bring more wacky fun with  attractions and elements we’ve never seen until now. 

Chip ‘n Dale Treehouse

Will this attraction be in the newly reimagined land? My guess, this goes. This attraction is absent from any official Disney commentary.

Chip ‘n’ Dale’s GADGETcoaster

For those wanting to get a little “nutty,” you can head over to Chip ‘n’ Dale’s GADGETcoaster, where Mickey’s Toontown’s favorite tinkerer, Gadget Hackwrench, has created a one-of-a-kind, fun-sized coaster for the town’s tiniest citizens.


Gadgets Go Coaster


This attraction was formerly called “Gadget’s Go Coaster”, it’s the same coaster, same track with a new name and fresh look.

Donald’s Boat

Disneyland officially announced this attraction will open on March 8, 2023 and  be “reimagined in new and exciting ways.” We now know from D23 Expo in 2022 that Donald’s Boat has taken on some water! But don’t worry—it’s all in good fun!


Donalds Boat


The surrounding are of Donald’s Boat has been revamped into a splash and water play area for kids of all ages and abilities.

Disney Parks Blog says, “Imagine larger-than-life spinning water lilies, balance beams and rocking toys at Donald’s Duck Pond that will help little ones get the wiggles out. Kids will definitely love making a splash in this space! You also can look into the boat through the portholes to witness bubbles of fun inside the flooded vessel and interact with some familiar ducklings including Huey, Dewey, Louie and Webby.”

This are will give much needed space to roam and cool down in a secluded back area of Disneyland Park!

Goofy’s Playhouse

Disneyland officially announced this attraction will open in March 2023 but will be “reimagined in new and exciting ways.” 


Goofys Playhouse


The outside of Goofy’s looks much the same but it’s the inside that will hold sweet and silly tricks and treats at every turn. In addition, a fantastic play space has been added to the area next to Goofy’s.

Disney Parks Blog has also given us a deeper dive into Goofy’s House and Goofy’s How-To-Play Yard:

When you step inside Goofy’s House, you’ll find a fun, interactive candy-making contraption that only Goofy could imagine! The confectionery contraption 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, junior candymakers will help Goofy make the candy, and the silly sounds of household appliances will combine to make a truly Goofy symphony.

Mickey’s House

Disneyland officially announced this attraction will stay! Mickey’s house is a staple and highlight of Mickey’s Toontown.

This self guided tour through Mickey’s House is always full of fun and nostalgia. It also allows guests to meet with Mickey at the end of their house tour, as long as he’s home!

Minnie’s House

Disneyland officially announced this attraction will stay! Along with Mickey’s house, Minnie’s place is always busy and a beautiful part of Toontown.


Minnies House


I love her pink house and the outdoor meet and greet with the tea party set up. Take a self-guided tour through her home and you might even meet Minnie in her garden afterwards!

Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin

Disneyland officially announced this attraction will stay! Board Lenny the Cab and spin through the streets and alleys of Toontown as you follow the adventures of Roger Rabbit.

I would have been okay if this one didn’t return. I enjoy the attraction but it seems more random and out of place as time goes on.  

Mickey & Minnie’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. NEWS: Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway will open January 27, 2023 with the rest of the land to follow March 8, 2023.

This new ride features none other than Mickey Mouse and friends. It has been open at Walt Disney World for a while now and we can’t wait to see it become the headlining attraction of the reimagined land.

CenTOONial Park

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.

Walt’s Dreaming Tree

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. 


Cafe Daisy front view


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. We haven’t heard yet if this stays, we expect more news to be shared from Disney as March 2023 approaches.

It’s the only thing basic I like in this land when we’re talking food and treats.

Cafe Daisy (formerly Daisy’s Diner)

The new dining area of Mickey’s Toontown is has been refreshed and revived in many ways! Cafe Daisy will be serving fresh eats and maybe even some “picnic” style offerings for families to enjoy in the new area with much more seating.

I can’t wait to see what the menu offers and if it holds steady on my list of Disneyland budget food.

Good Boy! Grocers 

In our new land, Pluto is serving up fresh eats, drinks and treats at this roadside stand. This Toontown Farmers Market offers grab-and-go drinks and treats.

    Any guess when in March this will close? We had planned a trip from Michigan to Disneyland just to see toontown for my daugther in March 2020 but clearly had to postpone due to covid. Trying to replay our trip which would be spring break but don’t want to schedule if it will be closed!
