However we won't be talking about much about Mickey's Birthdayland as I never actually experienced it. Today's Fastpass to History features photos and memories from Mickey's Starland which was what Mickey's Birthdayland became. The birthday bash had to end at some point right?
On April 22, 1990 they closed Birthdayland for good (nearly two years after his birthday) and on May 26th, 1990 Mickey's Starland opened at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World.
One of my favorite memories was entering one of the tents to find lifesize comic book covers. You could walk on to the cover and stand in front of or behind the characters already pictured there. It made for a great photo opportunity as it looked as if you were really a part of the comic book. The store fronts of Duckburg were pint sized and made children feel as if they were really in a town inhabited by toons.
This has been Fastpass to History. I hope you enjoyed my brief look back at the area that was once Mickey's Starland and its transformations throughout the years.
