Mickey’s Toontown is a place where guests can play in their own way, and invite others to play, and play together. The environment and experiences in this land were designed to allow guests to see, hear, feel, and interact with one another in various ways.
The reimagined Mickey’s Toontown was thoughtfully designed to try to remove as many barriers to play as possible, with more open green spaces for gathering and play. It has thoughtful elements for the different needs of young families, from companion restrooms and a quieter area for a calming break to a curb-free land that helps make navigation easier for guests of differing abilities.
CenTOONial Park is the first space guests see when they enter the land. CenTOONial Park will be anchored by two new interactive play experiences: a beautiful fountain featuring water tables designed for play that invite guests to have a sensory experience, plus a nearby dreaming tree with sculpted tree roots for children to crawl around and explore.
Donald’s Duck Pond will help little ones get the wiggles out and make a splash. Perched in the duck pond, Donald’s Boat is surrounded by larger-than-life spinning water lilies, balance beams and rocking toys. Explorers can look into the boat’s portholes to witness bubbles of fun inside featuring familiar ducklings Huey, Dewey, Louie and Webby.
Goofy’s How-To-Play Yard incorporates an entertaining sound garden where kids will discover new ways to make wacky noises, as well as an all-new, elevated clubhouse. Inside Goofy’s House, guests can help operate a fun, interactive candy-making contraption that only Goofy could imagine.
Mickey’s Toontown is also home to the new, family-friendly attraction Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, which debuted on January 27, 2023. The attraction features no age/height restriction, so families can travel all together into the wacky and unpredictable cartoon world of Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse.
Returning attractions include Mickey’s House, Minnie’s House, and Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin. Plus, the fun-sized attraction has transformed into Chip ‘n’ Dale’s GADGETcoaster, where guests can go nuts on a coaster created by the resident tinkerer of Mickey’s Toontown, Gadget Hackwrench.
While visiting this whimsical world, guests may spot and take photos with Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and their pals Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Pluto, Clarabelle and Goofy. For the first time at any Disney park, Pete will also make appearances as he causes mischief around the neighborhood. Mickey Mouse will sport a new outfit specifically for when he is greeting guests outside of his home.
Two all-new dining locations in Mickey’s Toontown will serve colorful comfort foods and scrumptious snacks that are sure to satisfy kids and kids at heart. Café Daisy offers food and beverages via mobile ordering through the Disneyland app and serves up playful spins on diner classics – including a plant-based option. The Good Boy! Grocers farmers market stand offers grab-and-go drinks, snacks, and novelties. For a memorable mealtime and while supplies last, families can pick up the Souvenir Slushee Sipper or Perfect Picnic Basket novelty, which includes guests’ choice of three snack-sized items. Guests can also add on the Perfect Picnic Blanket to go with their purchase and if there is room, lay it out on the grassy area near Roger Rabbit!
Another must-try dining experience is the Toontown Trolley Treats, which serves up a variety of confections such as freshly-baked cookies, cotton candy, and caramel apples. And for those looking for a fun and quirky souvenir, there are plenty of whimsical wares available at the various gift shops in Mickey’s Toontown.
