Where Is the Popular Location That Reopened Inside of Disneyland Park?

Mickey’s Toontown is located at Disneyland Park. It’s across the Disneyland Railroad tracks from Fantasyland, and the entrance is a tunnel that opens into Fantasyland. You can also take the Disney Railroad to Mickey’s Toontown.

Mickey’s Toontown is a fanciful representation of the cartoon community where all Disney characters live. It has classic attractions, character greetings, and entertainment. Mickey’s Toontown opened in 1993. It was reimagined and reopened on March 19, 2023.
The area that is now reopened is Goofy’s How-to-Play Yard. Goofy’s How-to-Play Yard is a children’s play area in Mickey’s Toontown at Disneyland Park. The playhouse is themed around Goofy’s home and is designed for young children to explore and play. It’s a fun and detailed play area for kids ages 2 to 12.

Why Did Goofy’s How-To-Play Yard Close Down?

Goofy’s How-to-Play Yard was made for the reimagined Mickey’s Toontown. Disneyland’s ToonTown closed in early 2022 for an extensive reimagining and reemerged on March 19, 2023. The play area includes:
  • An accessible slide
  • A ramp up to the entrance
  • A whimsical sound garden
  • Activities throughout

Goofy’s How-to-Play Yard at Disneyland Resort was closed for refurbishment. The area was initially scheduled to close on October 23 but was pushed back to October 30. It reopened on November 10. 

Goofy’s How-to-Play Yard is a kid-friendly play area in Mickey’s Toontown. Toontown closed in 2022 for a year as part of a significant reimagining. During that time, Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway ride and a few other kid-friendly play areas were added, including Centoonial Park and Goofy’s How-to-Play Yard.
