Mickey’s Toontown Fair was one of themed lands in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort; however, it closed in February 2011 to make room for future expansion of Fantasyland. Now, the area is home to Storybook Circus, which hosts rides such as Dumbo the Flying Elephant and Goofy’s Barnstormer.

Many Walt Disney World fans miss Mickey’s Toontown Fair, and even though they can’t visit the land in person, they can enjoy some nostalgia thanks to an aerial photo making its rounds on social media.

This area is now occupied by Storybook Circus as a part of New Fantasyland.

Within the photo, you can see what Mickey’s ToonTown used to look like in Magic Kingdom, including Mickey Mouse’s home — which actually hosted a meet and greet with Mickey himself.

Although Mickey’s Toontown in Disney World closed in 2011, there is still a version of Mickey’s Toontown in Disneyland. In fact, Disney recently announced that Mickey’s Toontown Fair in Disneyland would be reimagined and will include all new experiences.
