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.
