History

Roger Rabbit was recognized as a lucrative character by Disney after the release of Who Framed Roger Rabbit, and an ambitious set of attractions based on the movie were developed for many Disney theme parks. Roger Rabbit was even set to be the star of his own land, behind Main Street, U.S.A. at Disneyland, called Hollywoodland. Meanwhile, over at the Magic Kingdom, a new land behind Fantasyland was being developed in honor of Mickey Mouse's sixtieth birthday, aptly named Mickey's Birthdayland. There were also set to be attractions based on Roger Rabbit, Judge Doom, and Baby Herman opening in a major expansion at the Disney-MGM Studios and Tokyo Disneyland, but after the financial disaster of the Euro Disney Resort, plans were dramatically cut back.

Disneyland Resort Paris is a holiday and recreation resort in Marne-la-Vallée, in the suburbs of Paris, France, featuring two Disney theme parks, Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park. ...


Hollywoodland was cancelled, and was combined with the idea of Mickey's Birthdayland as well as a concept found in Who Framed Roger Rabbit, to form Mickey's Toontown, which opened in 1993 behind Fantasyland at Disneyland. Mickey's Birthdayland opened as planned in 1988 before Euro Disney, and was expanded as a sister to Mickey's Toontown at Disneyland and was renovated in 1996 to re-open as Mickey's Toontown Fair. The attractions at Disney-MGM Studios were cancelled, but an exact replica of Mickey's Toontown opened at Tokyo Disneyland in 1996.


Originally the attraction was slated to be an indoor and outdoor attraction. The cars were supposed to venture out on the second floor on the side of the Gag Factory outcrop. After taking in consideration of possible bad weather, Disney reconsidered and ditched the idea.


In the ride, Marvin Acme's "Acme Warehouse" from the film is called the "Gag Warehouse" and the cans of "DIP" in the opening scene of the ride, are real props from the film Who Framed Roger Rabbit. One has a dent from where Christopher Lloyd kicked it.

The area inside Toontown where the ride is located was originally the location for the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh attraction, where guest would board spinning Hunny Pots.


Ride

Ride vehicle for Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin.

Guests board a yellow cartoon cab named Lenny, which is the twin of Benny (which appears in the film). Guests enter Lenny the Cab because Roger is out driving Benny, which can be seen in the first scene of the attraction. Each cab seats two people, and the cabs are dispatched in groups of two. Once guests reach a scene of Roger Rabbit and Benny The Cab, spinning out in a puddle of "DIP" spilled by Judge Doom's Weasel Gang, the steering wheel of the cab becomes active, and the car can then spin around, much like Fantasyland's Mad Tea Party. The rest of the attraction features many scenes and characters from the film, such as Jessica Rabbit and Baby Herman.
