    Toontown- did it use to look different?

    Hi Guys!

    I have a picture of me and my parents, on the steps of a building in what I believe to be Toontown, but I can't tell. Did it use to be a bit different? Was there a refurb?

    The picture is of us sitting on the steps of "Duckburg" courthouse, its a pink building, on a corner, next to a dark blue "Jail". I would scan+show you guys, but its glued in the memory book I'm giving my Dad for Father's day :P

    Thoughts?
    Next DL trip is in 2 WEEKS!!!!!

    I was there the summer Toontown opened, and as far as I remember it's still mostly the same. The trolley car no longer runs, and there are a few other small changes, but no big refurbs to my knowledge. Maybe someone can correct me here.

    That could be part of the temporary setup when they had Disney Afternoon Avenue, centered around the current cartoons at the time...mid-nineties.

    You are describing the Afternoon Avenue area circa 1991.

    Wow... that photo looks like it was taken in the '60s.

    I never knew about this promotion. I had seen the Gummi Bears Motor Boat Cruise in a picture on Yesterland, though. But I didn't know what it meant until now.

    We were also just talking about in another thread how awesome Disney's afternoon cartoon shows were. I wish they still made shows like that for today's kids.

    And suddenly I feel like eating gummy bears.

    Why no trolley car? I hope DCA's new trolley doesn't go the same way.

    I think I went during this. My first trip was in 1992 when I was either 2 or 3 and we have photos in an album with those places you're talking about. This must have been it.

    Hrrmmmm....the changes to Toontown since it opened....

    1. Roger Rabbit's CarToon Spin opened (it did not open with the rest of the land).

    2. Chip & Dale's Acorn Crawl & Slide - The acorn pit was closed first, then I believe the slide closed as well.

    3. Jolly Trolly - No longer operates and one lone trolly is permanently kept in the center of the former route.

    4. Donald's Boat - This attraction had a slide as well that closed. Also, there was a net ladder that you could climb to the 2nd level on here. Added was a much larger staircase to get to the 2nd level.

    5. Goofy's Bounce House - The bounce part of the house was removed a few years back.

    (If I got any of this incorrect, I apologize. I don't get out of TDA much. Sometimes, I forget that there is a theme park right outside my office...LOL!)

    The trolley in DCA is much more like the Main Street Vehicle attractions than the Toontown Jolly Trolley was.

    Jolly Trolley was a one way trip from the Roger Rabbit fountain to the Mickey fountain. The Cast Members had to ring an amazingly loud bell to keep guests off of the ride path.

    The only unique item about the Jolly Trolley was that it would move cartoon-like from place to place. It would "bob" up and down and it moved forward.

    I can't find a Disneyland Jolly Trolley clip. He's a TDL one. It's pretty much the same as this.

    All the above mentioned attractions closed for safety reasons, yes Jollly Trolley closed too many close calls with guests and sad to say the interactive play areas closed because of frivilous lawsuits by parents who don't understand PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY...
