Mickey’s Birthdayland opened at the Magic Kingdom in 1988 for Mickey’s 60th, became Mickey’s Starland by about 1990, and got the “Toontown Fair” upgrade after the opening of Mickey’s Toontown at Disneyland in 1993…I think as late as 1995 or 1996.
It was called “Stargate” from opening through the 1994 Innoventions debut, when I believe is when it got the EU redo. I recall purple umbrellas outside and views of the gardens and waterways in that area before they were paved over. I remember liking the food but was a kid lol
I always thought of Disneyland’s Main Street as Midwest and Florida’s drawing from Eastern Victorian architecture (more ornate, detailed)…for example the railroad station is based on the original one in Saratoga, NY.
We had Liberty Tree lunch reservations in late July and when we got there they sat us in Diamond Horseshoe…same menu. Piano on stage played occasionally but hard to hear over the din of the lunch crowd.
I still find the use of generic “Disney Parks” bags the most ridiculous considering the lengths and expense they went to remove credit card and Coca Cola product names, etc from these lands. In addition to no BGM as it was deemed not thematically appropriate.
The current queue/loading design is from 2005. I don’t think the fountains would fit where they originally were as the 2005 design takes up space across the water where the fountains were. The 1971 design was on the walls only. (There’s a pic somewhere in this thread).
