Well, talk about an early birthday treat for Mickey and Minnie Mouse for this upcoming week! The reimagined Mickey’s Toontown at Disneyland will be opening up in early 2023. In addition to this exciting news, Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway is a new attraction. If you were waiting till 2022 for its original opening, that’s no longer the case. Unfortunately, we are going to have to wait a while for the announced time frame.
Newly updated play experiences and a lush green environment for families with younger children will enjoy the reimagined Mickey’s Toontown. Don’t worry; parents can sit back and relax while their children play. Because of the greener and more spacious section of the park, it’ll give more play activities and attractions.
“We are so excited to leverage Disney’s powerful brand, develop new stories and share even more magical experiences with our guests,” said D’Amaro. “The newly reimagined Mickey’s Toontown will be a welcoming place where families and younger guests can connect and play together in fun new ways.”Disney Parks, Products and Experiences Chairman, Josh D’Amaro
CenTOONial Park will be one of the brand new areas for Mickey’s Toontown. This will be the first space that guests will see when they enter. In addition to the natural space, and will be anchored by two interactive play experiences. A fountain will be at the center of the park, which will also become a centerpiece for Mickey’s Toontown. Water tables will be a sensory experience to have some fun with. When nighttime falls, the fountain will all be lit up, and some great photos to take.
A dreaming tree as nod detail will also be featured for the area, where young Walt Disney would hang out and daydream under in his hometown. Sculpted tree roots will provide an opportunity for children to play, crawl and explore. Different topography will feature rolling hills for a scenic background.
Mickey’s Toontown will close in March of 2022 to make way for these all-new experiences.
