Disneyland Announces Delay of Highly-Anticipated Attraction
The theme park attraction was originally set to open March 8, 2023.
Disneyland has pushed back the reopening date for one of its highly-anticipated park areas.
The delay affects the themed land where its latest attraction is housed—an exciting part of the #Disney100 celebration this year—where Mickey and Minnie Mouse star in their very first ride-through at the Disneyland Resort for the first time ever in Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway.
Though the ride itself opened to the public on Jan. 27, the park area where it's located, Mickey's ToonTown, will open a few days later than initially planned.
It was originally slated for a March 8 reopening date at the Anaheim, California, location, but will now welcome visitors about two weeks later on March 19 instead, the company announced in a statement.

"Due to heavy winter storms that impacted our construction momentum, we are adjusting the reopening date of Mickey's ToonTown to March 19. We can't wait for our Guests to visit and experience the reimagined land," the notification noted.
For the ride, fans are taken into the El CapiTOON Theater in the landmark park (which houses an exhibit unique to Disneyland), that transports those onboard into the wacky and unpredictable cartoon world of the famed rodent couple on a ride engineered by their pal Goofy, making for a magical adventure fit for the entire family.
Park-goers planning a trip for before the reopening still have plenty to enjoy, as Disney lovers can journey through the centennial celebration with The Disney Gallery Presents: Disney 100 Years of Wonder on Main Street, U.S.A., an exhibit highlighting Walt Disney's vision for the first theme park opened by The Walt Disney Company—which became the inspiration behind some of Walt's early films—alongside artwork by original Disney Imagineers, and more.
