    Maybe driving the bulldozer should be part of the "year of dreams"

    The biggest problem with TT (besides theres' nothing there) is the flow through the area. It's a narrow dead end, filled with doublewide strollers!!

    I agree, if your child is of the age where a (barely)themed playground area is enthralling, it's too young to be at Disneyland. Said child most likely comes with a stroller in tow, so that'd be killing two crowding elements at once!

    I know i hate clones.. but....

    What about an "opera" house for Toon Town.... Then they could port "Mickey's Philarmagic" into the theater... it would fit the theme well, and bring a new attraction to the area.. then turn one of the old Empty / Lawyer perfected homes into a Toon Town parking lot.. lol

    I like the Philharmagic idea. That's a great 3D show and it is a huge crowd-eater. It would fit the area well, too.
    Warning: Portions of this attraction are intense and may not be appropriate for younger children.

    Personally, I wouldn't really mind if they just tore the whole thing down and have it replaced with a great up to date E-ticket ride. There's not much to do there, Gadgets Go-Coaster is pretty lame, and Roger Rabbits Cartoon Spin is fun... but not worth the usual long wait. Those two rides are all there is, unless you want to wait for ages to see Mickey's house.

    I think there should be rides for the little ones, but if I were in charge of what gets built at a Disney theme park, it would be top priority for there to be many more rides that every age group can truly enjoy. Some of those might lean more to adults (e.g. POTC) and some might lean more to preschoolers (e.g. IASW), but they should ideally be fun for LOTS of people to enjoy.

    Walt Disney is quoted as saying
    "Disneyland really began when my two daughters were very young. Saturday was always Daddy's Day and I would take them to the merry-go-round and sit on a bench waiting and eating peanuts while they rode. And sitting there, alone, I felt there should be something built, some kind of family park, where parents and children could have fun together."

    Why on earth, then, have they built the very same kind of place that Walt was avoiding when he created Disneyland?

    Exactly.
    There are some rides adult and kids can do..but that's just just a few.

    Re: Complete Furburbishment of Mickey's Toontown?

    As a father of two little girls under 6, they loved Toon Town, but for me, it was an odd experience.

    1. The Gadget Go Coaster.
    Clever, but I had no idea that it was themed. In this supposed to be Inspector Gadget? If so... why in toon town? If not... how is it related to the toon characteres? As for the ride itself, it is a very very simple coaster with no cleverness or interest once you've begun... and as soon as it has started...it's over.

    2. The Jolly Trolly.
    This is an accident just waiting to happen. Great idea and brings movement but it needs more room to move.

    3. Goofy-Donald-Chip & Dale areas
    I thought Walt wanted an place where Parents and Kids could do things together. There was no way I could fit in any of these and even the ones I could, I had so many kids running in differnt directions, I felt unsafe.

    4. Roger Rabbit Car Toon Spin
    OK... not awful, but why is the best ride in the area.... and that is by default, themed to such a movie? It was clever but not a classic. If this is Mickey's town.... I think there are better themes to go with.

    I just wish they would admit that this area was only for the youngest of the young set and leave it at that.

    I would fix it by making a second entance/exit and create an extra "block" of themed houses so that you had a choice to up one street and down another.

    Third time's a charm?
    Anyways, I also think a house of mouse restaurant would be great, with PhilharMagic built into it somehow.

    I think some of you are too old to appreciate the novelty of Toontown. When it was opening up, my kids were nuts about it. I went to DL with some work friends at the time and got so much noise for it, eventually having to promise to not see ToonTown before they did.

    While it's not quite as captivating 12 years later, you do have to admit that it's a pretty cute idea imagineering-wise.
