    1. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
    2. Pirates of the Caribbean
    3. Splash Mountain
    4. Mad Tea Party
    5. Peter Pan's Flight

    no, it's Toontown. The toons don't change so why should there be a time period.

    Re: Time period in Mickey's Toontown

    I would actually guess that Toontown depicts the 1940s, for several reasons.

    1. The land's name refers to the setting of the film Who Framed Roger Rabbit, which took place in the 1940s (and which also has the biggest attraction presence in the area).

    2. The land plays host to Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, and Donald, characters who (debatably) saw most of their most major cartoons come out between the '30s and '50s. Since the architecture of their homes derives directly from those cartoons, that would mean the architecture harks back to the style of that erea.

    3. The land was also heavily inspired by and possibly even evolved from the concept known as Hollywoodland, which was to be a parallel street to Main Street, and was based on Hollywood of the 1930s and 1940s.

    4. The (defunct) Jolly Trolleys seem to be based on the Los Angeles Red Car system, which saw its heyday in the 1940s.

    For more information on the apparently very carefully-designed setting of Toontown, check out this link.

    Well whenever I visit Toontown, to me it feels very 90's. I wonder why.

    My main reason for asking this is something so small and so inconspicuous, it would not matter much otherwise. That something is the license plates on the backs of "Lenny", the cab you ride on in the Roger Rabbit ride. The year on it is for 1947, the year in which "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" was set. The Disney-themed license plates on the wall in the queue nearby also backs this up, showing off years between 1931 and 1947, if you look at them carefully.

    Same here!! I was just gonna say that. But that's only because the 90's is when I used to enjoy it the most. That, and I always link Rescue Rangers and Roger Rabbit with the 90's as well.

    I also don't get a 40's vibe (except for the jail). I have to agree w/ the 90's vibe.
