Goofy’s Playhouse is one of those attractions that looks like it is really more for the younger audience, rather then for the Mom and Dad and 12 year old, but looks can be deceiving!  Goofy’s Playhouse is our choice for Day 78 in our Disneyland countdown, and while it certainly isn’t something that we will likely look at more then once, it is part of Mickey’s Toontown in Disneyland, and as such, is one of the things that makes Toontown what it is, full of interesting tidbits and nice little surprises.

We will take a look at the attraction, enjoy it, reflect on it as we decide how much it reminds us of Mickey’s House and Minnie’s House, and also how much it reminds us of Toontown Fair that used to live in the Magic Kingdom.

In the end, perhaps this is what really is significant about Goofy’s Playhouse and Toontown in general — it reminds us of past trips to the Magic Kingdom, and reminds us, even if it’s just for a short while, of what it was we had with Toontown Fair, and what we now miss.

So tell me, if you please, what do you think of Goofy’s Playhouse?  Do you have youngsters that can’t get enough of stepping into Goofy’s house for themselves?  Or, are you like us, and take a look at the Playhouse for the novelty of it, but can certainly bypass it after that?  Please let me know in the comments, and thanks for stopping by!

84 Days til Disneyland – Minnie’s House!

minnies-house_alt See?  I told you you would be able to figure out what today’s post would be about!  Today is 84 days until we travel to Disneyland, and for this day, we are taking a look at Minnie’s House!  Located next door to Mickey’s House, which we talked about yesterday, Minnie’s House reminds me of her Country House that we saw in Mickey’s Toontown Fair.

Perhaps the biggest reason I want to visit Toontown and see all of the great things there is because of the memories it will revive in me from my journeys through Mickey’s Toontown Fair. Or perhaps it’s because I like the idea of finding furniture that I can sit in!

Whatever the reason, what I know is the Minnie’s House is definitely on the list of things that I want to experience when we visit Disneyland — in 84 short days — which will hopefully be here in very short order.

84 days — just 12 short weeks.  Thank you for stopping by!  Now, please tell me, do you like to experience Minnie’s House?  If so, what is your favorite reason why, and if not, why not?
