      They used to have a live foamhead show in the tent where Mickey greets guests now. The orginal show featured the other Fab characters trying to spring a surprise party on Da Mouse. When they turned it into Starland, the show changed to shill the characters of the Disney Afternoon animated lineup (Launchpad McQuack, Chip and Dale etc ...) ... the only other attraction of note was the petting zoo, which sat on the site of Goofy's Barnstormer and featured the lovely bovine, Minnie Moo.

          I remember the darkwing duck show. The petting zoo with Minnie Moo ( a cow with a mickey-shaped spot) and they did have a small playground with those balls that you jump in and tunnels to crawl through,etc. Where Mickey's house is there was a fake storefront with little shops painteed on it. That's all I can remember.

              If I remember correctly they didn't have Mickey's house, but you could go and see him backstage after one of his shows. (at lease that was the setup)

                Toontown needs to mimick Toontown in DL, they have plenty of room now that they fill in the 20k tank. The only things that I would keep are the Barnstormer and Don's Boat.

                  Mickey's house has always been there... though it was completely re-furbished when Mickey's Starland became Mickey's Toontown Fair.

                            I am very happy. Travel the World in my Corporation's jet. Check Disney Parks out on "quality control run". Get an ocasional side trip like the one to EXPO 2005 in Aichi this past week, and come back to report to you all. How dysfunctional can that be?

                                I like flan!! Have you tried coconut tembleque with cinnamon sugar sprinkled on it? People who know what a 'chupacabras' is, should know this as well...

                                        Well I find it ridiculous that they try to make it seem like Mickey's Toontown Fair is an East Coast country village that Mickey escapes to, when he's not out doing movies in California in Disneyland's Mickey's Toontown.

                                        I mean, the Magic Kingdom has a Main Street, Tomorrowland, Adventureland, Frontierland and a Fantasyland (Liberty Square being the only land "unique" to FLORIDA) but their version of Toontown was supposed to be a different place than California's somehow.

                                        I would have liked to see Disney MGM and Disney's CA Adventure get Mickey's Toontowns, (just through the tunnel from Hollywood, like in the WFRR movie) but unfortunately they came after Mickey was in place in both Magic Kingdoms.

                                        In response to the question about what attractions used to be there:

                                        1988/89 Guidebook: In honor of Mickey's Birthday, Mickey's Birthdayland.
                                        All abooooaaaard! Catch a train at the WDW RR station and ride to Mickey's Birthdayland. Here's what you'll find when you arrive:
                                        Attractions 1. WDW RR, 2. Mickey's House (stepping into Mickey's house in Duckburg is like stepping into the Sunday morning comics. See his car, furniture, and memorabalia... step out the back door to the Birthday party tent..watch clips as you wait your turn to join the shenanigans iin Minnie's Kitchen. At Minnie's surprise party, pluto Goofy Donald and Chip and Dale are part of the hilarious musical show that features a new song We Love You Mickey Mouse. When the cake is baked, it's time to move into the party tent. Disney Characters join Mickey on a birthday cake stage and sing Happy Birthday to Mickey Mouse. Attraction #3: Mickey's Hollywood Theater - Greet the star and pose for pictures in Mickey's dressing room.
                                        #4: Grandma Duck's Farm (petting zoo) + merchandise cart / snack cart. The Grand Prix raceway was not shortened yet, and 20K Leagues was still running next door.

                                        Later, it became Mickey's Starland, after the birthday celebration was over and they saw how popular it was to meet Mickey. So The "SUPERSTARS of the Disney Afternoon" aka Darkwing Duck, Launchpad McQuack, Baloo and Louie from Tale Spin, Chip and Dale and Scrooge McDuck join the show.

                                        Eventually, the Grand Prix track was shortened so Donald's boat and the Barnstormer roller coaster could go in and Garndma Duck's farm went away. Did her barn become part of the Barnstormer???

                                        At that time, they also added Minnie's Country house Toon Park and Petes Garage (restrooms).

                                        I think we can see why TOKYO said "copy the one in California" not Florida.

                                        Although the theme of Barnstormer is better than Gadget's Go Coaster (someone care to explain that one?), overall CALIFORNIA's Toon Town is way better. We have Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin, the ever missing Jolley Trolleys (if they havent' been shipped to Tokyo and are actually coming back). <Funny, the trolleys are drawn on the DL map but not listed as an attraction... Does anybody realize they slipped off the radar?>

                                        We also have Chip and Dale's Treehouse, which is a little cramped for parents taking their kids through anyways and Goofy's Bounce House. I'm not sure where the Acorn Crawl used to be. There are the snack stands and Gag Factory shop and more interactive things to play with along the buildings.

                                        So maybe WDW should use the rest of the 20K Leagues lagoon to complete their Toon Town.
