Mickey’s Toontown officially reopens to the public on March 19, 2023. After being closed since last year, this animated land will be reopening and be more accessible and inclusive to all who visit this happy little town. This is a place where “guests are invited to play in their own way, invite others to play and play together. The environment and the experiences in this land were designed to allow guests to see, hear, feel and interact with one another in various ways.”
Jeff Shaver-Moskowitz, Portfolio Executive Producer at Walt Disney Imagineering shared that “Mickey’s Toontown first opened 30 years ago, so there are generations of Disneyland Resort guests who have grown up with and made magical memories here. Walt Disney Imagineering set out to keep the essence of what makes Mickey’s Toontown special for so many, while evolving it for the coming generations of families who can’t wait to make new memories here.”
In January, guests were able to get a first taste of how magical Mickey’s Toontown would be with the opening of Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway and the surrounding areas. This included a new grassy area where young guests were immediately playing on the opening of the opening. However, much of the land was still cordoned off by happily painted walls as work continued on the bulk of Mickey’s Toontown.
As this whimsical land reopens at Disneyland, Disney has shared some fun facts about this new iteration of the town where Mickey & friends live. Check out the fun facts about this new land below!
