I remember visiting Disneyland park a few days after Mickey’s Toontown opened back in January 1993. Walking through the gates for the first time and seeing all the bright colors, wonderful shapes and never-ending subject matter, I thought to myself, “What a photographer’s paradise.” I never imagined that one day I would be a Disneyland Resort cast member, let alone a staff photographer. Twenty years later, Mickey’s Toontown still holds that magic for me. Here are a few photos that I hope capture the magic of Mickey’s Toontown after dark for you as they do for me.
It was exactly 20 years ago that Mickey’s Toontown first opened its gates to Disneyland park guests and today we’re looking back at photos from the grand opening celebration attended by media from all over the world and some of Hollywood’s top talent including Robin Williams, Sally Field and Steven Spielberg.
