P. 391: Mickey's Toontown reimagining announced for 2023!

Recommended Posts

He could scan each guest as they enter and if they are not vaccinated, they aren't allowed in! He could say, "I'm sorry, your parents are idiots, you cannot enter the park."

Long time lurker, first time poster...

 

I REALLY wish MiceChat would stop with their lies. One such lie on my mind is one where they say Toontown will be replaced by a Star Wars Land.

 

To make matters worse, Jim Hill, WDW1974, Lee MacDonald and other such untrustworthy sources have perpetuated that lie.

 

Besides, DL cannot get rid of Toontown. Not only is it popular (especially with kids), but it's also landlocked combined with the fact that it has to close early every night for the fireworks.

 

They also just introduced new costumes for Toontown's cast members, further discrediting MiceChat.

I went on Micechat for the first time in almost a year 2 days ago. I didn't pay attention to any of those rumors, but I was thrilled to hear (I might be very late on this)about Condor Flats' retheme.

So, your point is? We all run away from Mice Chat? I still enjoy the articles.

Whether they're true or not, is another matter. But that's okay. Until they build it....

Yes, the Condor Flats re-theme has been common knowledge for some time.

 

And let's go a bit easy on MiceChat here, OK Disneyphilip? You come across like someone with an ax to grind--time to put the ax away. Rumors are typical in the theme-park circles, particularly where Disney is concerned.

I honestly have no idea whether or not Toontown will be replaced or not, but I will say that new costumes is hardly an indicator of Toontown having a future. That's a relatively small cost to absorb.

Is Toon Town still kinda run down and discolored from the sun?

 

The last time I went to DL and brought a lady back there just to see how it was doing, she wanted to leave immediately. I have no clue, it might be great for the kids, but I remember when it was new. But it was almost the most run down part of the park and I had no problem getting out of there as soon as we entered. It's become like the unwanted stepchild to the park.

 

It's a weird part of the park that closes early for fireworks, but I see it as a great opportunity to create something amazing.

All-New ‘World of Color’ Show Coming to Disney California Adventure Park for Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration, Beginning May 22

posted on January 28th, 2015 by Shawn Slater, Communications Manager, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Creative Entertainment

 

It’s a big night at the Disneyland Resort, as we reveal some of the exciting plans for the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration, including spectacular new entertainment and sparkling surprises – all starting this spring!

Continuing a tradition of innovative, immersive storytelling begun when Walt Disney opened Disneyland on July 17, 1955, the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration showcases three electrifying new shows that will take you into the worlds of Disney stories like never before.

 

Tonight, Tom Staggs was joined on stage by Steve Davison, executive for parades and spectaculars with Walt Disney Imagineering Creative Entertainment, as they shared that during the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration, Disney California Adventure park will present a special edition of the popular “World of Color” show.

Opening May 22, 2015, “World of Color – Celebrate! The Wonderful World of Walt Disney” illuminates the night in a contemporary and moving celebration of Walt and his dream of Disneyland, showing that anything is possible if we never give up on our dreams.

Mickey Mouse will take guests on a fun-filled and inspirational journey through the unparalleled imagination of Walt Disney, exploring his decades-long legacy of memorable animated moments and the dream of Disneyland park.

Both epic and intimate in scope, “World of Color – Celebrate! The Wonderful World of Walt Disney” brings to life the remarkable story of Walt and the Happiest Place on Earth in a first-of-its-kind spectacular, presented on the magic canvas of “World of Color” with compelling animated imagery, live-action footage, fountains, lasers, special effects and a stirring musical score.

‘Disneyland Forever’ Fireworks Spectacular Announced for Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration

posted on January 28th, 2015 by Shawn Slater, Communications Manager, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Creative Entertainment

 

Wrapping up tonight’s big entertainment news for the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration, Tom Staggs and Steve Davison have revealed a completely new kind of fireworks spectacular for Disneyland park, debuting May 22, 2015.

“Disneyland Forever” shows just how magical the Magic Kingdom can be, in a sky-high celebration featuring sparkling pyrotechnics, immersive projections, and other effects that transform Disneyland park right before your eyes!

 

“Disneyland Forever” envelops you in an enthralling, breathtaking journey like never before, leveraging the largest installation of projection mapping technology in a Disney park and surprising special effects. Main Street, U.S.A., and several other Disneyland park locations become a magical canvas taking us into a world of dreams, from flying above the London skyline from “Peter Pan” to a dance with King Louie in “The Jungle Book.”

 

“Disneyland Forever” also features two original songs, the theme “Live the Magic” and the inspiring closing song “Kiss Goodnight,” written by Disney Legend Richard Sherman.

 

Walt Disney once said, “Disneyland will never be completed, as long as there is imagination left in the world.” As “Disneyland Forever” caps off each evening of this once-in-a-lifetime celebration, we discover Walt’s inspiring words still hold true today. Disneyland will continue to be home to all our dreams and adventures … forever!

 

Tonight, we’ve announced the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration will include a special edition of the popular “World of Color” at Disney California Adventure park, plus an impressive new nighttime parade and a fully-immersive fireworks spectacular at Disneyland park.

 

Stay tuned, because Erin has one more exciting thing to share with you! And keep reading Disney Parks Blog over the next few months, as we share more details about these stunning new nighttime spectaculars and other surprises planned for the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration – all kicking off May 22, 2015!

Personally, I enjoy the MiceChat rumor mill. It's entertaining to read their wild speculation and funny to see them worry at the thought of slight changes. I don't take theme park rumors seriously. Luckily for you they are pretty easy to ignore.

Toontown isn't amazingly vibrant. While I like Roger's, I can see them targeting that area for demolition eventually. The standby line is one of the best themed in the entire park, but it is low capacity with those ride vehicles. And the kids are not running around with Roger Rabbit merchandise, but certainly are with Star Wars and Marvel. I can see why it might make sense to do a star wars land there, the Toontown area could close for years and not impact the park.

 

The height balloons did go up, and it is probably just a first step to see how the skyline would change at DL when they do decide to drop in a new themed land. I would not expect anything significant to happen to the park for at least 5 years or more. Unless USH manages to impact the attendance at DL with Harry Potter, I don't see the parks in an huge rush to build out another massive project for a long time.

That's not a valid reason to do it. Besides, Toontown is landlocked, popular and it always has to close early every night for fireworks. The area is also too small for something as grand as Star Wars. And they already have Star Tours in Tomorrowland.

Height balloons mean nothing. More likely, they were just testing them for the new fireworks shows.

 

It's common sense that Toontown will not leave.

I disagree. New costumes ARE an indication. And it's not a "small" cost to absorb--it costs A LOT of time, money and resources to make new costumes.
