For the most part, this park is all about putting you into detailed environments that immerse you in another place and time. Sorry, folks. Mickey’s Toontown Fair Train Station is an exception to that rule.

    Great Article Werner

    The Train Station looked really weird and very temporary. I kinda matched ToonTown Fair. However, the new station looks fantastic and is a great reminder of Walt hobby of Trains. As a railway/railroad enthusiast, I think it matches the setting of a small town and the circus has arrived.

    Thanks Again Werner, these articles are fantastic and can’t wait to see what will be entering Yesterland in 2013

    Totally agree. Although I haven’t seen it in person, Toontown Faire always seemed half-way done. I worked there in the summer of 1997 and 1998 and it was always just sort of “eh” to me. A lot of Fantasyland had that same feel to me actually. I was always amazed at how WDW did less with more space. The new expansion will help it feel more in line with the Fantasylands in other parks (at least Paris and California). Even so, they are only going to gain one overall ride with such a huge expansion.

    Great article!
    I’m so glad that pile of cheap steel has been replaced by that wonderful little station.

    It looks to me that they re-painted all the trains, as the old paint looked crummy.
