On a recent trip to Disneyland Park, we stopped by Mickey’s Toontown and noticed that new construction walls have gone up around CenTOONial Park.

The walls completely encompass the fountain and park’s play area.

CenTOONial Park is currently listed on the official Disneyland website and mobile app as “closed for refurbishment.”

It is possible that this temporary closure is related to the overall refresh of the land’s artificial turf that’s been happening periodically for the past few months. The fountain itself isn’t surrounded by turf, so this could just involve work on the adjacent turf in the play area. The fountain may also be receiving some TLC.

No end date for this refurbishment has been announced. Just in the past two months, new elements were added to the CenTOONial Park fountain and water jets were added to the flowers and clamshells, completing the water play area for guests to enjoy.

The Reimagined Mickey’s Toontown

Mickey’s Toontown reopened to the public in Disneyland on March 19, 2023. Extensive repairs and changes were made to the land, including an increase in green spaces, quiet areas for guest relaxation and comfort, and added shade to the land. 

Iconic structures guests known and loved since 1993, including Mickey and Minnie’s houses, received fresh paint in slightly toned-down hues. They otherwise remain unchanged. There are also two new dining venues in the land. 

At the newly opened Café Daisy, offerings include hot dogs, pizza, and a Spring Garden Wrap. Picnic Time Watermelon Lemonade, Granny Goof’s Garden Sweet Tea, and Specialty Cold Brrr-ew are also available alongside standard fountain drinks and prepackaged water and juices. Check out our review of every item here.

Good Boy! Grocers is the second new venue in the land. It is a farmer’s market-style stand with grab-and-go items, and it replaced the former Goofy’s Gas Station.

Character meet-and-greets have resumed in Mickey’s Toontown, including Mickey and the gang, as well as a very special debut of Pete. One character even received a new costume for the grand reopening!

CenTOONial Park features two water tables and a Dreaming Tree that young ones can use for play. Donald’s Boat and Goofy’s house have been refurbished, with the latter now also holding Goofy’s How-to-Play Yard, which offers a sound garden and elevated clubhouse. Meanwhile, Gadget’s Go Coaster has become Chip ‘n’ Dale’s Gadget Coaster, though it will still be centered around Gadget Hackwrench. The centerpiece of the new land, Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, opened in late January.
