The Walt Disney World Resort has advised its cast members today that Mickey’s Toontown Fair will see its last date of operation on February 11, 2011. Beginning February 12, 2011, that area of the Magic Kingdom will be unavailable to guests as the park continues its work on the Fantasyland Expansion (FLE) project.
With respect to the attractions in Toontown Fair that will be removed as a result of this change:
- Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and the Disney Princess will eventually relocate to a new meet & greet area inside Exposition Hall. Should the meet & greet not be ready in time, the characters will remain available to meet & greet inside the park at locations to be determined later.
- Tinker Bell will temporarily be relocated to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The remaining fairies (Silvermist, Rosetta, Fawn, Terence and Vidia) will return to Epcot for meet & greets in the spring, presumably with the 2011 Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival.
- The Walt Disney World Railroad will be unaffected for the most part, however the Toontown station will be closed.
Thank you to a Stitch Kingdom reader for the tip. This information has been confirmed by the Walt Disney World Resort.
