Disneyland’s Toontown Hills Removed as Construction Begins on Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway

The green hills behind Toontown at Disneyland have been removed to make way for the park’s new attraction, Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway.

What’s happening:

  • The day has finally come. It looks like construction has begun on Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway at Disneyland Park.
  • Disneyland’s Toontown is home to Roger Rabbit’s Cartoon Spin as well as the “actual” homes of beloved characters:
    • Donald Duck
    • Goofy
    • Minnie Mouse
    • Mickey Mouse
    • Chip and Dale
  • Toontown features plenty of cartoony buildings and wacky designs, but fans particularly love the rolling green hills that served as a backdrop for the land.
  • As of recently, the hills have been removed, indicating that construction is underway on Disneyland’s new attraction. Take a look:

  • And just for fun, here’s what the land looked like before the hills were removed:

  • While nothing has been confirmed, it is possible that the iconic hills will return once Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway is complete.

Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway:

  • This fun attraction is joining Toontown and will take guests out of the park and right into a Mickey Mouse cartoon!
  • Guests will start their adventure by visiting the toon theater to see a new Mickey & Minnie short, but things will take a crazy turn when they are pulled into the animated feature.
  • This will be the first attraction at Disneyland to star Mickey Mouse.
  • Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway is scheduled to open in 2022.
