This article is about the Toontown from Disneyland. For other Toontowns, see Toontown.

Mickey's Toontown is one of the nine themed lands of Disneyland located in the northernmost section of the park. It was inspired by and developed on the back of the wild success of Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

Its Magic Kingdom counterpart was Mickey's Toontown Fair, which closed in 2011 to make way for that park's Fantasyland expansion. An identical version of the land can be found at Tokyo Disneyland.

History

Mickey's Toontown opened in Disneyland on January 24, 1993.[1] The area is inspired by Who Framed Roger Rabbit (minus characters such as Bugs Bunny, Droopy, Tweety Bird, Betty Boop and the other Toons from the film), and resembles a set from a Max Fleischer cartoon. The buildings are stylized and colorful. There are several attractions involving classic cartoon characters, such as the houses of Mickey and Minnie Mouse, and a small children's coaster. Compared to other Disneyland areas however, there are few large or technically complex rides or shows, and the houses themselves appeal primarily as play areas for small children.

The fictional backstory given for Mickey's Toontown is that it was a hidden Toon suburb that Mickey Mouse had moved to in 1930 to keep in touch with his humble Midwestern roots, with his friends following soon after. When Walt Disney was looking for a location to build Disneyland, Mickey pointed him towards a large orange grove nearby for him to build his park. After the park opened, Mickey and his friends would travel between their Toontown homes and Disneyland to meet the countless guests that visited the park, before eventually deciding to open their hometown to the public later in the 90s, digging a tunnel through the berm.

An early entry event called Toontown Morning Madness was held here for guests booking travel with the American Automobile Association (AAA) or book a vacation package with the Walt Disney Travel Company. However, Morning Madness has been discontinued as of 2013 as Extra Magic Hours and Magic Mornings are now offered.[2]

An animated version of Mickey's Toontown was used as Mickey and friends' hometown as depicted in Mickey Mouse Works and other Mickey & Friends media released around the time of the show's run.

In 2019, it was announced that Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway would be built in the land, with the attraction's entrance replacing the land's gift shops. Additionally, in November of 2021, it was announced that the addition of Runaway Railway will come with more reimagined elements to the land, with the long closed Chip and Dale's Treehouse being removed, and a new park space, CenTOONial Park, being created adjacent to Goofy's Playhouse near the land's entrance. CenTOONial Park will be home to a new fountain of Mickey and Minnie, a new tree fort structure, and a Dreaming Tree inspired by the one Walt Disney sat under as a child in Marceline, Missouri.[3]

On April 30, 2021, Disneyland Resort reopened after being temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic; however, most of the walkthrough attractions in Mickey's Toontown remain temporarily closed.

On November 15, 2021, it was announced Mickey’s Toontown would be closed until 2023 as part of an "ambitious reimagining project”.
