See What Toontown Looks Like With all of the Ongoing Construction
Earlier today here at MickeyBlog we shared a story shared in the O.C.Register regarding the ongoing problems at Mickey’s Toontown at Disneyland Resort. Since opening back in March, the re-imagined Disneyland neighborhood has been plagued with wear-and-tear issues and various areas in Toontown have gone through rounds of refurbishments to remedy.
Our MickeyBlogger Dan is on the scene to take a look at the area to get a sense of the disruptions that guests might experience during your visit.
Though signs of construction aren’t too visible as you enter Toontown, very quickly you are met with construction walls.
Our MickeyBlogger Dan said that this is problematic as it drastically narrows the walkways in the area.
For those unfamiliar, Toontown is home to Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, Roger Rabbits Cartoon Spin, and the new Chip ‘n’ Dale Gadget Coaster.
This area is a popular spot for families with small children making it hard to navigate the construction with all those strollers!
As you can see the construction walls currently surround CenTOOnial Park which was designed to be a large green public park space in the center of Toontown.
Though the land has only been open for less than a year, we’re told that the Mickey and Minnie fountain at the center of the park has broken and was reportedly leaking over the last few months.
This area is expected to remain under construction until late October.
Other work being carried out includes. a large climbing tree in the park area. Various problems have been reported with the Dreaming Tree and Disney is having to replace the softly padded ground covering in the area which has suffering from wear and tear.
Once work on CenTOONial Park is complete, Disney will then spend a month working on much-needed repairs to Goofy’s How-To-Play-Yard.
Work on Goofy’s House is expected to last through mid-November.
In addition, there was a water play area that was supposedly in the works for Toontown. However, this has yet to open.
There’s no word yet on if/when the water elements will officially open.
According to the piece in the OC Register, since opening back in March, Toontown has been hit with an unusual amount of repair work needing to be carried out so early after the land’s reopening.
We hope that this is a step toward righting the course and that as we go into 2024 guests are able to enjoy the area without there being areas in bad need of some TLC.
This is a story that we will continue to follow closely.
