Mickey’s Toontown Transformation is Coming

| | |

This week, as we celebrate the birthday of Mickey Mouse, there is some big news coming from the Disneyland Resort! There will be a major transformation of Mickey’s Toontown in 2023!

The reimagined area of Disneyland park will debut in early 2023. It will feature the new attraction, Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway. The Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, Josh D’Amaro, shared the news today at the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) Expo.

Some all-new experiences will be added to this land, focusing on the experiences of young children and families. The hope of the imagineers is to create more opportunities for families to play together!
There will be new play experiences, as well as open, grassy play spaces for everyone to unplug.

D’Amaro said, “We are so excited to leverage Disney’s powerful brand, develop new stories and share even more magical experiences with our guests.” He goes on to say, “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.”
Although there will be more green space to relax, the land will offer more play activities and attractions than ever before. The play options will engage all of the senses, from active to hands-on opportunities! Children can play, slide, spin, splash, touch and listen!

CenTOONial Park, one of the New Experiences Coming to Mickey’s Toontown at Disneyland Park in 2023

One of the new areas coming to Mickey’s Toontown will be CenTOONial Park, the first space guests will see when they enter. This natural space will be anchored by two interactive play experiences.

There will be a fountain for play at the center of this new area and it will be an icon for the reimagined land. There will be water tables to engage the senses and at night, the fountain will be brought to life in a unique way!

There will also be a dreaming tree inspired by a tree in Walt Disney’s hometown, where he would sit under when he was young. It will feature yet another opportunity for children to play, crawl and explore, with sculpted tree roots and a relaxing place to sit and dream!

In addition to reopening in 2023 with the new, family-friendly and adventurous Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, be on the lookout for all of your favorite characters including Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Donald Duck and more!

Mickey’s Toontown will close in March of 2022 to begin creating these all-new experiences.

Stay tuned for all the latest updates as we learn more about this exciting transformation!
