Welcome to Mickey’s Toontown, where you can explore the world of Mickey Mouse, play with your friends Goofy and Donald, and have loads of fun! Toontown can be enjoyed by Disney fans of all ages, but if you are planning to visit Disneyland Resort with your little ones, then you won’t want to skip a trip to Toontown.
Enter the world of cartoon fun in Mickey’s Toontown. Here, Guests can meet Mickey, spin in a cartoon car, and play in Chip ‘n Dale’s treehouse until the sun goes down (remember, ToonTown closes earlier than the rest of the Park!).
From Disneyland – Memories of a Lifetime:
Bursting with color and frenetic energy, Mickey’s Toontown is a 1930s classic Disney cartoon come to wacky “reel” life. Here in teh social hub of “Toon” life, animated stars such as Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy, Chip ‘n Dale, and Roger Rabbit live, work, and play, much to the delight of guests of al ages.
Toontown legend has it that Mickey Mouse found the three-acre community in the 1930s as a retreat from the bustle of Hollywood. Until its opening in 1993 Toontown was kept secret, the only human allowed being Walt Disney. Mickey suggested in the early 1950s that the vacant property to the south be turned into Disneyland Park. Thirty-eight years later, Mickey decided to open Toontown to the public.
Signage leading into Mickey’s Toontown denotes such organizations as the DAR (Daughters of the Animated Reel), Loyal Knights of the Inkwell, Optimist Intoonational, and the Benevolent and Protective Order of Mouse.
Where to Find Mickey’s Toontown at Disneyland
Mickey’s Toontown is located toward the back of Disneyland Park. There are only a couple of ways to get to Toontown.
One of the ways to get to Toontown is by walking through Fantasyland past “it’s a small world.” From there, you will see the entrance to Mickey’s ToonTown.
The other way to get to Toontown is by riding on the Disneyland Railroad. The Disneyland Railroad makes several stops at stations throughout the theme park, one of those stations being at Toontown. So, you could board the train at the Main Street, U.S.A., station, and then ride it all the way to the Toontown station.
Within Toontown, there are several popular locations. Soon after you enter this area of the Park, and you look toward the left, you will see Mickey’s house and Minnie’s house. This is also where you can meet these characters — but more on that later on in this guide!

How Many Can Sit Together?
Each hollowed-out “acorn” seat fits 2 passengers and is designed for 1 adult and 1 child.
Play Before You Ride
Explore a colorful collection of found objects inside Gadget’s Workshop, where she designs all kinds of marvelous contraptions—including her mouse-terpiece: a roller coaster made from acorns.
Based on the Animated Series
Gadget’s Go Coaster is inspired by the Disney animated series Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers, where Chip, Dale and a team of crime fighters help solve mysteries.
The cleverest member of the team is Gadget, a young female mouse and a resourceful inventor who uses found objects like bottle caps, cans, toy blocks and rubber bands—all seen from her mouse-size point of view.
A “Hare”-Raising Ride
Catch a ride in a taxi and follow Roger Rabbit and Benny the Cab as they race through Toontown in search of Jessica Rabbit. Beware—the villainous Weasels are pouring slippery Toon-melting Dip in the paths of passing vehicles—including yours!
Crash and dash into Bullina’s China Shop and slip and slide through the Power House. Spin wildly into the Gag Warehouse storage area, where the Weasels are waiting to take aim at your cab.
Is this the end of the line for you and Roger Rabbit? Don’t count on it!
You can spin your vehicle a full 360 degrees as you try to drive along the crazy course and regain control of your cab.
Based on the Hit Film
Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin was inspired by the Academy Award®-winning film, Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Directed by Robert Zemeckis and produced by Steven Spielberg, the film successfully created the illusion that animated characters were interacting in the “real” world with people, thanks to the state-of-the-art technology of that time.
The attraction revisits the story of Roger Rabbit as he attempts to rescue his beloved wife Jessica Rabbit from the evil henchman known as the Weasels.
