Mickey’s Starland closed in 1996 as the area was completely refurbished and new, more permanent, structures were added. A few months later, the land reopened as Mickey’s Toontown Fair. Toontown Fair was decidedly more cartoon-like (similar to Disneyland’s Toontown) than it’s predecessor(s). It featured bright colors and cartoon-style architecture. Guests could ride Goofy’s Barnstormer, a mild roller coaster, as well as play on Donald’s Boat, check-out the Toontown Market and hit some shopping at County Bounty. They could take a tour of Mickey and Minnie’s newly remodeled homes and then visit the large tent for a meet-and-greet with some classic Disney characters.
In February 2011, Mickey’s Toontown Fair closed to make way for the new Fantasyland expansion. While Toontown Fair is no more, a new area of Fantasyland called “Storybook Circus” features some of the same attractions (now rethemed) including the roller coaster formerly known as “Goofy’s Barnstormer” as well as completely redone versions of the circus tents.
