In anticipation of a new signature ride for the area and the company's 100th anniversary, Disney announced they would renovate the themed land based on the 1988 movie "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" last year. Toontown opened in 1993.

Headlining the new land will be the e-ticket ride, Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway, the first Mickey Mouse-themed ride attraction at Disney Parks.

The ride, which has already debuted at Walt Disney World, is coming to Disneyland on Jan. 27, when the company officially kicks off the "Disney100" anniversary celebration.

When the rest of Toontown officially reopens in March, the land will feature CenTOONial Park, a new open, grassy play space area for families and young children to hang out in. 

The rest of the land will have several interactive play experiences, including a water fountain with water tables, a dreaming tree with sculpted tree roots that kids can explore, and a newly renovated Goofy's House and Donald Duck's boat.
