    Re: Is it time to replace Toontown?

    Toontown is fine. Its only problem is it is too sun-baked. They originally had it so wide open because the Jolly Trolley ran straight through it, but now that that has been removed, they've been left with a concourse five times too wide. Plant some trees and grass and fountains.

    What needs to be removed is the thing in front of ToonTown. That horrid theatre that looks like TDA went to K-mart and picked out the cheapest giant patio canopy they could find and erected it on site.

    More trees or shade of some kind would definitely help. I love the wide-openness of ToonTown but it's a little like being on a grill.

    No. It is time to shut it down for a LONG rennovation, though.

    I think that a lot of people forget that one of the reasons that ToonTown was built was to take a lot of the pressure off FantasyLand from the kids and strollers. If ToonTown was totally shut down I would hate to think of what FantasyLand would be like.

    My personal feeling is that ToonTown needs to be Fixed. It was a lot more fun before the lawyers took so many things out. Donald's boat is a mirror shadow of what it use to be, for example.

    It would be a waste to demolish it. Instead, more attractions need to added such as an Epic Mickey E-ticket dark ride or Mickey's Philharmagic and bringing back the Jolly Trolley because right now there is hardly any reason for me to visit that section in the park. Also, repainting the facades would be needed as well.

If Toontown had a major attraction to anchor the land, it could become one of the most popular Disneyland lands!
    Agreed! Cartoon Spin wasn't enough to get me back to the TT when I was there a week ago. If there were another attraction that the whole family could enjoy, I think it would help revitalize it - along with some fresh coats of paint, etc. I liked the area, but if I am running low on time or steam, it's one that is skippable, sadly, until they bring in a new attraction.

    Shade is ESSENTIAL in TT! Definitely needs some shade added!!!!!

    Re: Is it time to replace Toontown?

    I'd love to see more interactive character homes like Mickeys. Minnies is quite small and Goofy's house and Donalds boat are play grounds. Is Chip and Dales tree even in use anymore? Also, since this land is quite the trek to get out to, there should be something more exciting than Roger Rabbit and Mickeys House which are the 2 things I try and hit up if I even go back there. I would actually love to see Toontown replicate the concept sketches more closely. There were multiple levels on Roger that extended outdoors and just an energy that I could feel just from looking at the sketches.

    Re: Is it time to replace Toontown?

    I would love to see it revamped to reflect not only the 80s - 90s era of the toons, but more about their prime time! Those characters are barely in films anymore, so why not reflect on their prime between the 20s - 40s?! Not saying they absolutely need to make it look like all the short cartoons, but incorporate it somehow? there's so much you can do as far as creating a toon friendly neighbourhood! In my eyes, I'd be looking for those classic characters on Main St rather than in the actual Toon Town area...

    The entrance to Toontown is only about 150 yards past Fantasyland. I wouldn't call that a "trek".

    Re: Is it time to replace Toontown?

    If they brought over Mickey's Philharmagic that would be cool, and it would make me actually set foot in Toontown once in a while. Certainly the number one thing it needs is more shade. CM's HATE working there because you get cooked standing out there all day. Even standing under an umbrella like I did was no help, because the sidewalk and the buildings all reflect the heat. Toontown needs A LOT of trees, and may even a small lagoon or something. Also a fab-five themed restaurant would be nice.

    I don't usually ride Small World and rarely find myself near that back portion of Fantasyland, so to each his own

    Nope; just as it has been written here...a re-boot is needed. Some fresh paint everywhere and some more large shade trees would work nicely.

    Re: Is it time to replace Toontown?

    It's really become a sad, thoroughly under maintained area of the park. I ADORE Car Toon Spin, and I really enjoy taking my siblings to see Mickey & Minnie in their houses, but lets face it; the paint is peeling, there are two rides, and to be frank, the whole land gives off more of a creepy vibe than anything else.
