Mickey's ToonTown Fair (EXTINCT!)
Minnie's Country House (EXTINCT!)
(October 1, 1996 - February 11, 2011)
History and photos of Minnie's Country House in Mickey's ToonTown Fair in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World.
Minnie's Country House was part of the re-theming that converted Mickey's Starland into Mickey's ToonTown Fair at the Magic Kingdom. The popularity of Mickey's House in Mickey's Birthdayland / Mickey's Starland inspired the Disney Imagineers to add a house for Minnie Mouse. Her house officially opened with the rest of the land on October 1, 1996.
Just like Mickey's Country House, the house for Minnie Mouse is also a walk-through house and an example of how Minnie would decorate her home. Guests would quickly notice that this house is quite a bit different than Mickey's house. While the outside of Mickey's house was bright and bold, Minnie's house has a softer and cozier look to it with more of a feminine touch.
Also like Mickey's house, Minnie's house opened with the living room. Next to it was an art studio where Minnie practiced her painting as well as sculpting. One of the paintings in particular is that of The Barnstormer at Goofy's Wiseacre Farm, the junior roller coaster just across the street in Mickey's ToonTown Fair. Also in Minnie's house guests would see some of Minnie's prized potted plants, flowers that have won her prizes at previous country fairs.
The most popular room in Minnie's house is her kitchen. The kitchen was always a busy place where you could hear and smell items cooking, and you could safely interact with some of the appliances. There was even a plate on the counter with some holographic chocolate chip cookies.
Minnie's backyard was simple with mainly a gazebo occupying the yard. Instead of growing a garden like Mickey, Minnie preferred the yard's natural beauty.
Minnie's Country House closed on February 11, 2011 to make way for the new expansion of Fantasyland. The house was completely removed and not re-themed like the train station or The Barnstormer at Goofy's Wiseacre Farm.
