History Of The Magic Kingdom's 7th Land
In 1988 Mickey's Birthdayland was erected as a temporary location to celebrate Mickey Mouse's 60th birthday. The response was so positive that when Mickey's birthday celebration was over it was transformed into a more permanent land and renamed "Mickey's Starland."
In 1996 the area was redone again with it now being called the current name of Mickey's Toontown Fair. This became the land to meet every one's favorite Disney character - Mickey Mouse. The entire land was friendly for Disney World's youngest guests. Not only could you meet Mickey Mouse and your favorite Disney Princess, you could also ride a Roller Coaster that was sized just right for pre-schoolers.
Mickey's Toontown Fair
As you exit Fantasyland and enter Mickey's Toontown Fair the first landmark that you happen upon is Pete's Garage. Many of you may remember Pete from his appearance in many Disney cartoons. Pate's Garage also doubles as the land's RestRooms which was a necessity for any parents with young children.
The next landmark is the only ride in Mickey's Toontown Fair, also known as, Goofy's Barnstormer On Wiseacre's Farm. This child sized roller coaster has given many a youngster their first taste of roller coasters and set up that yearning for a future ride on Space Mountain.
The redesigned Fantasyland is expected to have a train stop, but the theming will change. In the interim the Mickey's Towntown Fair Train Station will be closed.
