Mickey's ToonTown Fair
This has got to be the most magical place for children n Magic Kingdom. When the girls were little this was always the first place they wanted to visit, and sometimes the last as well!
We usually get there on the Walt Disney World Railroad which is an old-fashioned steam train which has a for a 15-20 minute tour encircling the Magic Kingdom, with a stop at Frontierland and Mickey's Toontown Fair.
Toontown occupies two acres of land behind Fantasyland where you can visit the most cheerful town fair in the world. Toontown was originally called Mickey's Birthdayland, this area opened in 1988 as part of Mickey's 60th birthday celebration.
Our first stop was always Mickey’s Country House, which is in the middle of Toontown and leads to his all-day greeting area.
Toontown Fair is busiest in the early morning, but traffic flows fairly smoothly through Mickey's House but you need to allow 15-20 minutes to walk through. You will however have to wait a little longer to see Mickey himself. If you just can't wait to see Mickey, bypass the sights in the house and exit the back door, then follow the path to the Judge's Tent, in which Mickey greets guests most of the day.
As you enter Mickey's home, be on the lookout for all the mouse like details: the coat rack, the mirror also look at check out who Mickey got mail from on his hall table – it is from Buzz Lightyear, Ariel, and even Wendy and Peter Pan!
As well as seeing Mickey’s living room you will have a chance to peek inside Mickey's bedroom, with his neatly arranged clothes -- lots of the familiar white gloves and yellow shoes.
In the games room you will see all types of games materials. Down the hall, you'll find Mickey's chaotic kitchen, which is in the process of being remodelled by his friends Donald and Goofy!
Be sure the children do not miss Pluto’s doghouse in the back yard, with his bone-shaped wind chimes.
Children love to then visit Minnie’s Country House and walk through her colourful home which is a lavender and baby pink bungalow decorated with hearts and flowers.
The Toontown Hall of Fame is a great place to meet the characters, our girls used to love seeing the Disney princesses in the Princess Room.
Next door to the Hall of Fame, is the Toontown Fair Judge's Tent. Children take their autograph books for their own special meeting with Judge Mickey Mouse, surrounded by prize-winning fruits and vegetables. While they are waiting they are shown a video featuring all of Mickey's county fair adventures.
The Barnstormer at Goofy's Wiseacres Farm is the only roller coaster in Walt Disney World designed specifically for children. This is designed to look like a 1920s crop-duster, a biplane that takes you over red barns and farm buildings. In typical Goofy fashion, you finish the ride by safely "crashing" into one of the barns.
We always finish our visit to Toontown by going to Donald’s Boat to allow the children to cool down. This is in the middle of Toontown and is the S. S. Miss Daisy, named after his favourite girlfriend. It's a fun water-play area for the little ones, perfect for cooling down on hot days.
Next door to Donald's Boat, is Toon Park, with plenty of room for the little ones to crawl around. There is a playhouse and slide as well as a number of shaded benches provided for the patiently waiting adults who by now have earned a rest!
