Toontown: A Thematic Guide

Roger Rabbit Fountain Disneyland

Mickey's Toontown was the first land based on Mickey at the original Disneyland. It features an animated town where all the classic Disney characters live. It is based around the movie Who Framed Roger Rabbit and the town from this film of the same name.

Mickey's House Toontown Hills Disneyland

If you have been to the version of this land at the Magic Kingdom in Disney World, prepare for a shock. This is not the temporary land that was, this is a full land with rides and theming.

The land is split into two sections.

Mickey's Neighborhood

Donald Duck Boat Mickey's Toontown Disneyland

Starting with the residential section of Toontown, Mickey and Minnie's houses are still present, but they have toon mountains behind them to add scale to the land. 

Mickey's Movie Barn Entrance Toontown Disneyland

Both features meet and greets with their owners, Mickeys featuring a journey through not only his house but also a "Movie Barn" with props and costumes from classic shorts like the band concert.

Goofy House Toontown Disneyland

Donald, Goofy and Chip and Dale also have houses, but their's are play areas and the characters do not meet in them. They do, however, sometimes meet in the downtown section of Toontown.

There is also a rollercoaster in this section called Gadget's Go Coaster themed to Gadget Hackwrench. It is a kiddie coaster at best.

Do not eat here. I know there is a restaurant and yes it serves kid-friendly food but its extremely bad. If you want kid-friendly food nearby go to Galactic Grill in Tomorrowland.


Benny the Cab Toontown Disneyland

This is the section of the land that is really based on Who Framed Roger Rabbit. As you enter there is a fountain with Roger Rabbit at the center, there is an interactive post office with mailboxes for the fab 5 and Roger and Jessica Rabbit.

Toontown Fireworks Disneyland

There are multiple different hidden effects in this section, from a fireworks factory to a power station.

Toontown Power House Disneyland

Be sure to open the door of the power station.

Toontown Five and Dime Shop Disneyland

This is also where the gift shop of Toontown is, in the Five and Dime and Gag Factory.

The Gag Factory is a lot of fun, but be aware it is set to close in the near future to make way for Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway.

The crown jewel of this section, however, is Roger Rabbit's Cartoon Spin. In this ride, you must save Roger and Jessica from being Dipped by weasels from the movie. You ride on Lenny the Cab (Cousin of Benny the Cab) as you go on a mad chase through Toontown. You get to control your spin on this ride, so make sure to use it to see everything as there are details all around you.

Roger Rabbit Car Toon Spin Disneyland

This is one of the most immersive dark rides in the park and based on a great yet underappreciated film.

Weasel Roger Rabbit Car Toon Spin Queue Disneyland

Make sure not to use the Fastpass for this ride. This ride very often gets up to a 45-minute wait, but the queue makes the wait worth it. You walk along the back alleyways of Toontown past significant characters and locations from the movie such as Baby Herman and the Ink and Paint Club.

Dumbo Lost Feather Roger Rabbit Car Toon Spin Disneyland

If you want to appreciate this section make sure to watch the movie before you visit.

Toontown is an extremely fun section, with many interactive elements that are fun for all ages. Be sure not to miss out on these on your next visit to Disneyland!
