5 Mickey Mouse Attractions at Disney Parks That Never Really Took Off

3. Mickey’s Toontown at Disneyland

Surprisingly, it took a lengthy 38 years for Mickey Mouse to get his own themed area at the original Disney theme park. Mickey’s Toontown at Disneyland opened in January of 1993. Despite its name, it was largely inspired by the recent popular film Who Framed Roger Rabit? It resembled the setting of a Max Fleischer cartoon. It did, however, have attractions like the houses of Mickey and Minnie House to celebrate the original Disney icon, as well as places for close friends Donald Duck and Goofy. But, like most other things Mickey-related, Toontown has not been a gigantic draw to guests for the majority of its existence. 

4. Mickey’s Toontown at Tokyo Disneyland

Mickey and his family haven’t fared much better overseas, even though all the open international parks except Hong Kong Disneyland have some sort of Toontown. Mickey’s Toontown at Tokyo Disneyland opened on April 15th, 1996, and is essentially a mirror image of Mickey’s Toontown at Disneyland. 

5. Toon Studios at Walt Disney Studios, Paris

Walt Disney Studios, Paris has something akin to Mickey’s Toontown, but is mostly devoid of Mickey Mouse and company. Toon Studios, which opened in June of 2007, adopts the concept of a place where Disney characters live, but in Paris it’s where the Disney characters work, producing their own animated films using movie-making equipment usually only used for live-action features.

Toon Studios has attractions for Toy Story, Cars, Finding Nemo, Aladdin and more, but nothing specifically devoted to Mickey Mouse.
