Mickey's ToonTown Fair

Mickey's ToonTown Fair got its start as Mickey's Birthday Land, a temporary promotion in honor of Mickey's 60th Birthday in 1988 that gave him a place to greet his fans. Unlike the other lands in the Magic Kingdom, all of which have been there since it first opened and look like they existed years before that, Mickey's Birthday Land looked as pre-fab and temporary as it was.

The next year, however, instead of disappearing it became Mickey's Starland, housing a show promoting the "Disney Afternoon" television cartoon shows in addition to Mickey's House. The longer it's existence was extended, the more shopworn and, well, cheap, it began to look.

Finally it was rehabbed once again, becoming Mickey's ToonTown Fair. It still looks a bit temporary (those fairground "tent" buildings), and although it's now a little better, it still lacks the detailed theming and many of those wonderful little touches found in the other lands.

Which is why today it has been closed and is under reconstruction yet again, so it can be folded into a new, expanded Fantasyland. Mickey's meet and greets have been moved to the Exposition Hall on Main Street USA.



Where To?

Mickey's Toontown Fair is between Fantasyland and Tomorrowland.
