Disney has announced that Mickeys Toontown will not be reopening on March 8 as initially announced.
Mickeys Toontown at Disneyland Park has been closed since March 9th, 2022. For the past year, the land has undergone a ‘reimagination’ by Walt Disney Imagineers. Just a few weeks ahead of its planned opening date, unforseen factors have pushed back the schedule.
Construction on Mickey’s Toontown Heavily Affected
It was announced today that there had been some major setbacks in construction due to the winter weather that Disneyland Resort has seen this year. These unforeseen winter storms have caused some construction-related setbacks for Toontown.
Mickey’s Toontown reimagination has been anticipated for some time. The newly updated land will feature more grassy parks and areas for active play. Goofy’s house will receive renovations and the addition of Goofy’s How-To-Play Yard, which will include interactive experiences and a clubhouse that will be perfect for younger Guests.
Donald Duck’s Boat is also getting some revisions. Donald’s updated Boat will have a water play area called Donald’s Duck Pond. Other renovations are happening to Mickey’s House, Minnie’s House, and Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin. Gadget’s Go Coaster will undergo a retheme and become Chip ’n’ Dale’s Gadget Coaster. Two new restaurants, Café Daisy and the Toontown Farmers Markey at Good Boy Grocers, are also highly anticipated by Guests.
The main event of the reimagining of Mickey’s Toontown is the addition of Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, which opening on January 27, 2023. The ride created a lot of positive buzz for the rest of the land, so this delay is definitely a bummer.
