Mickey’s ToonTown

Many years ago, a unique collaboration brought about another live action combined with animation movie that resonated with moviegoers everywhere.  Unlike Mary Poppins, this release as based on the combination, like the old Alice shorts.  The movie brought together animated stars from all walks of production.  The collaboration and agreement between all the copy righted parties was unheard of, and probably will never happen again.

Through this success, a land was born.  Mickey’s ToonTown sits at the very back of DLR.   As you cross under the trestle, you enter a land filled with sight and sound gags.  This land is about as close to a kids land as you can achieve in DLR.   The attractions for the most part are geared towards little legs.   Goofy’s playhouse, Donald’s Boat provide areas where little legs can burn off pent up energy.

Toontown is also the home of the worlds best known ambassadors. Mickey’s house is where you can descend through Mickey’s private residence and have a moment together.   Minnie’s house is located there as well.   This home is fit for a genuine lady, and gives a peek into Minnie’s way of life.  Open the fridge, check the oven!

Gadget’s Go Coaster and Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin are the two most popular ride attractions.  The coaster is geared towards little legs, although adults will fit as well.   Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin is a ride through the movie.

Move through the wild and zany world of Roger Rabbit, while spinning and swerving to avoid the DIP! 

If you have little one’s this area gives adults a place to sit and rest while they burn off energy.  The houses along the street are filled with sight and sound gags as well as places for the kids to run through the houses.  Pictures with Mickey and Minnie are almost a given here, although the lines can be very long.  

Historically, this land took the place of administrative buildings from way back when.  Expanding behind the railway, DLR has always had challenges where growth is concerned.  There just isnt the land resource Florida WDW enjoys.  

If your trip needs a bit of zany craziness, take the train to the back of the park.  Disembark and mosey on down the walkway.  Might I suggest if you buy any snacks along the way, just avoid “The DIP”ping sauces.

  1. My mother-in-law thought this portion was really neat when she was out there a few years ago. I hope to visit with the kids soon – I’ve never been to Disneyland so I’m looking forward to it all!

  2. I remember when ToonTown opened. It was SO magical (still is!) and it really does make you feel like you’re in a different world. Disney really hit it out of the park with their themeing in this area.

  3. I love ToonTown! I think it’s really well detailed and fun, something different to other areas of the park. As a child I also thought it was so cool to go to Mickey and Minnie’s house, just like adults want to see celebrities’s homes. I’m kinda sad it’s gone from WDW and that my future children will never get to experience it :( hopefully it stays at Disneyland so I can visit there!
