Back in February of this year, Mickey's Toontown Fair closed as part of the Magic Kingdom's Fantasyland expansion. However, many forget that Mickey's Toontown Fair didn't always have that name, nor did it always exist in the Magic Kingdom. Actually, this section of the Magic Kingdom didn't come to be until 1988 when Mickey's Birthdayland opened to celebrate Mickey's 60th birthday. This land was supposed to be temporary, but the public loved it! So in 1990, Mickey's Birthdayland was transformed into Mickey's Starland.
Mickey's Starland celebrated Mickey's stardom and Disney cartoons, featuring a show full of characters from Disney television shows like Goof Troop and Tail Spin, and Mickey himself. There was also a number of facade toon houses and businesses; a petting zoo, and Mickey's Country House which remained through all of the changes this area went through.
Mickey's Starland was then transformed into Mickey's Toontown Fair in 1996.
