Walt Dated World Presents Mickey's Birthdayland / Starland
Toontown Fair Is Coming Soon to Walt Dated World

All Aboard Mickey's Birthdayland Express!

Mickey's Birthdayland Express train

 Mickey Mouse turned 60 years old in 1988.  Walt Disney World erected what was supposed to be a temporary land to celebrate his birthday but it proved to be very popular with guests and guaranteed a place where they could meet Mickey.  As guests entered the Magic Kingdom, they would hear an announcement from Minnie, saying that she was having a surprise birthday party for Mickey and that once they were inside the park, they could go to the railroad station and she would send a special train to pick them up from Main Street or Frontierland.  The train featured a very catchy song and cutouts of Disney characters were placed along the tracks that showed them traveling to Mickey's birthday party.  Once Mickey's Birthdayland was converted to Mickey's Starland, the song was changed so that the train was "rollin' on the Walt Disney World Express."  

Mickey's Birthdayland Express Song (Excerpts)
(This narration only includes only the segments that were unique to Mickey's Birthdayland and does not include the rest of the "everyday" train spiel.)

Conductor:  All aboard for Birthdayland!

Chorus:  Rollin', rollin' on the Express.
We're rollin', on Mickey's Birthdayland Express.
We're going off to Mickey's Birthdayland,
and we're so glad that you could come along and join the gang.

Goofy: You'll have a whole lotta fun!  (This line was also said during the song by Donald.)

Minnie Mouse:  So come on, everyone!  (This line was also said during the song by Chip and Dale.)

Chorus:  We've got a big surprise for Mickey Mouse.
It's all aboard the Express bound for Birthdayland,
we have a date with Mickey Mouse's Birthdayland.
We'll have a whole lotta fun,
so come on everyone.
We've got a big surprise for Mickey Mouse.
We've got a big surprise for Mickey,
A Birthday bash for Mickey.
Big surprise for Mickey Mouse.
Rollin', rollin' on the Express.
Rollin', rollin' on the Express.

(Approaching Mickey's Birthdayland.)

Conductor: Our next stop is Duckberg, home of work famous movie stars...As you know, Duckberg is the feather pillow capital of America.  Things have been good for the Duckbergers.  Down is up! (Laughs then clears throat.) Next stop, Mickey's Birthdayland!  Now you see that house over there, that's where Mickey Mouse lives.  Minnie's got the party all set up out back.  Just go on through the house.  

(Approaching Main Street, U.S.A.)

Conductor: Welcome aboard the Birthdayland Express folks, bound for Main Street, U.S.A and the Frontierland station.  While on board, please keep those old arms and legs inside the train, and no eating, drinking or smoking.

Chorus:  Rollin', rollin' on the Express.
We're rollin', on Mickey's Birthdayland Express.
Oh we will always love our Mickey Mouse.
And if you ever want to take a ride to Mickey's house,
just catch the train on the track and we'll take you back,
to all the fun we had with Mickey Mouse.
Rollin', rollin' on the Express.
We're rollin', on Mickey's Birthdayland Express.

Birthdayland / Duckburg

 The land that was later known as Mickey's Toontown Fair was originally known as Mickey's Birthdayland from June 18, 1988-April 22, 1990.  Cindy Williams from Laverne & Shirley cut the ribbon for the grand opening, and Nancy Reagan also participated in an opening ceremony.  Guests could enter the land through an entrance between Fantasyland and Tomorrowland.  A train station was also built so that Mickey's Birthdayland Express could drop off passengers.  

Mickey's Birthdayland Duckburg sign

 Mickey's Birthdayland consisted of the town of Duckburg.  Although the photo below shows a Mickey balloon with red pants, there was also a Mickey balloon with a red, white and blue Uncle Sam-type outfit.  Within the town, guests could view small-scale storefronts and walk through Mickey's house and see Pluto's doghouse in the backyard.  There was also a playground and a topiary/shrub maze.

Minnie's Surprise Birthday Party Show

 After walking through Mickey's house, guests would pass other character dwellings, such as Donald Duck's boat (not the boat that was later in Toontown Fair) and then arrive at the Birthday Party Tent.  After watching Disney cartoons in a holding area, guests could see a show called Minnie's Surprise Birthday Party. The title pretty much described the plot of the show and featured a song called "We Love You Mickey Mouse."   After the show, guests would proceed to another room where Mickey and the gang did another short performance on top of a birthday cake with exploding confetti candles.  The show ran until April 22, 1990 and became Mickey's Magical TV World once the area was known as Mickey's Starland.  After the show, guests could visit with Mickey in his dressing room at the Hollywood Theater.  This element was held over once the area was known as Mickey's Starland and closed on March 11, 1996.

Grandma Duck's Farm

Grandma Duck's Farm at Mickey's Birthdayland

 Grandma Duck's petting farm was presented by Friskies.  The star of the farm was Minnie Moo the cow, who had a Mickey Mouse head on one side of her body.  The barn closed March 11, 1996 and Minnie Moo was moved to the petting farm in Fort Wilderness and died in the summer of 2001.  Other animals such as chickens, ducks, goats, pigs and miniature horses were also featured.  Grandma Duck's Farm later became the entrance/queue for Goofy's Barnstormer roller coaster.

 If you got hungry in Birthdayland, you could buy cupcakes, ice cream and drinks from a cart for your own impromptu birthday party.  You could also buy special Mickey Mouse 60th Birthday merchandise from another cart that was located nearby.

Mickey's Starland

 Mickey's Birthdayland was supposed to be a temporary land but it was so popular that it became Mickey's Starland on May 26, 1990.  The song on the train was modified so that it was the Walt Disney World Express.  A new show called Mickey's Magical TV World was created with characters from the Disney Afternoon shows and actually premiered on April 26, 1990 and ran in several versions until March 11, 1996.  There was a live character in the show with the unisex name of C.J., although most people who saw the show remember the part being played by a woman.

Sample Mickey's Magical TV World Show:  Circa 1991
(Note:  While descriptions of this show are complete, there are a few portions where the audio used for transcription has drop outs.  This is illustrated by ellipses.  Also, as this show had a live Cast Member interacting with characters that used taped dialogue, C.J. may not have always spoken the same way as represented in this script, although it would have been similar.  Photos that illustrate this script are taken from a later edition of the show.  See the section below regarding variations of the show.)

(Prior to the beginning of the show, the audience is encouraged to wake up the rapping computer narrator named D.U.D.E. by yelling,  “Hey D.U.D.E., what's happening?”  D.U.D.E. would then light up and lyrics would begin to show on his screen.  He was located on the right side of the stage.  The rest of the stage contained various facades decorated for the various Disney Afternoon shows.)

D.U.D.E.:  My name is D.U.D.E., I'm number one,
We're gonna have all kinds of fun.  
I'm the one who runs the show,
I'm the master, rapper computer control.
I brought you friends from near and far,
you'll meet'em now, each one's a star.
Everybody clap, clap, clap.
Everybody clap, clap, clap.
He gets the bad guys out of luck,
clap your hands for Darkwing Duck.

Darkwing Duck:  Everybody clap, clap, clap.
Everybody clap, clap, clap.

D.U.D.E.:  Old friends, new friends, we all win,
It's Baloo and Louie from Tale Spin.
Louie and Baloo:  Everybody stamp your feet.
Stamp, stamp, stamp.

D.U.D.E.: Ducktale time getting' down...
with Scrooge McDuck and Launchpad McQuack.

Scrooge and Launchpad:  Stamp, stamp, stamp.
Clap, clap, clap.

D.U.D.E.:  Here they are, fresh off the trail,
The Rescue Rangers, Chip and Dale.

Chip: Clap, clap, clap!

Dale: Stamp, stamp, stamp!

D.U.D.E.: To help us get it goin' today,
here's my deejay protégé.  
C.J., C.J., C.J.

(A perky cast member bounds out on to the stage.)

C.J.:  Hi everybody!  Hi Chip and Dale!  Give me a high four!  C'mon now!  Clap along.  Are you ready to have some fun?  Yeah?  
Let's go!  
I am C.J., don't you know?  
You're all here, c'mon, let's go!  
Clap and cheer, bring down the house,
here's our star, it's Mickey Mouse!  
(Mickey does not appear.)
Oh, um, just a second.  Hey D.U.D.E. let's try once more, ok?  
(with D.U.D.E.) Clap and cheer, bring down the house,
here's our star, it's Mickey Mouse!  

(Mickey still doesn't appear but Roger Rabbit bounds down the stairs.)

Roger Rabbit:  Surprise!  Surprise!  Surprise!  Surprise!  

C.J.:  Roger!  

Roger: It's a giant birthday party.  

C.J.: Oh no!

Roger: (Sings) Surprise!  Surprise!  Surprise!  At Disney World this year. There'll be plenty of games, and give a cheer.  We want you all to know we're really glad that you're here.  For our big surprise, at Disney World this year.  

C.J.: Ok Roger Rabbit, what are you doing here?  I mean, it's great to see you but we're all expecting Mickey.  

Roger: We'll, I'm a surprise star!  Surprise! (Sings) There'll be plenty of games, and give a cheer, we want you all to know we're really glad that you're here.  For our big surprise, at Disney World this year.  

C.J.:  Alright Roger!  That was a lot of fun, but what are you really up to?

Roger:  Don't you know?

C.J.: I guess not.

Roger:  I'm the Loon of a Toon.

C.J.:  Oh, I knew that.

Roger:   The Sultan of Smiles, the guru of…and Walt Disney World is having a big 20th Anniversary party all year.  

C.J.:  Well of course we are.

Roger:  So naturally, they pick me to surprise everybody.  

C.J.:  Ah, naturally.  

Roger:  And what's more, we're going to give somebody a special surprise right now!

C.J.:  Well you know what, I think I have someone in mind.  

Roger (next to a screen with a picture of him on it.):  Isn't this a lovely portrait?  What a handsome hare.  What a ravishing rabbit.  What a beautiful bunny.

(He walks behind the screen.  C.J. brings up a member of the audience to play a throwing game.  Suddenly alarm noises are heard and Roger runs out from behind the screen sputtering.)

C.J.: Roger, what did you think?

(Roger coughs.)

C.J.:  Roger, what's wrong?  

Roger:  I said, great shot.  

(The audience member then receives a prize that C.J. describes, such as a shirt.  Roger then interjects.)

Roger:  And a hat.  With a really great, sensational star celebrity on it.

C.J.: Really?  Who?

Roger: Me!  (laughs) Surprise!  

(Roger and C.J. dance some more to the refrain of Roger's surprise song.)

Roger and C.J.: There'll be plenty of games, and give a cheer, we want you all to know we're really glad that you're here.  For our big surprise, at Disney World this year.  

Roger:  Surprise!

C.J.:  Alright!

Roger:  See ya, folks!

C.J.: See ya, Rog!  That was a lot of fun!  Ok, D.U.D.E., we're ready to go.  But we can't do our ….without Mickey.  

D.U.D.E.: It's gettin' late, you gotta go,
you can't wait so start the show.  
The mystery that has you stuck,
needs the help of Darkwing Duck.  

C.J.:  Of course, D.U.D.E., you're totally clear.  In order to find Mickey we need a master detective.  
(Sings)
A great big Disney, straight from your Disney Afternoon.
A cloud of smoke and he appears
a master of surprise.
Who's that cunning mind behind
that shadowy disguise?
Nobody knows for sure
bad guys are outta luck!
'Cause here comes
Darkwing Duck!

Darkwing:  When there's trouble you call D.W.!

C.J.:  Darkwing Duck!

Darkwing:  Let's get dangerous!

C.J.:  Darkwing Duck!  You better watch out you bad boys!  Darkwing Duck!

Darkwing: I am the terror that flaps in the night!  I am the soap sum on the tub of crime!  I am-well, you know who I am.  

C.J.:  Right.

Darkwing:  What seems to be the problem here?

C.J.:  Well Dark, I'm not sure if you can help me or not but Mickey never showed up.  

Darkwing: A proverbial piece of cake, C.J.  Merely another mystery of a missing mouse.  

C.J.:  Cool.

(A noise is heard off stage.)

C.J.:  Darkwing, check it out!

Launchpad McQuack:  Hey, D.W., a delivery just came for you.  

C.J.:  Delivery?

Launchpad:  I don't know for sure.  But I think it's some sort of magic box.  

C.J.:  Magic box?  Well, bring it out here!  

Launchpad:  Look at this. (Whistles.)

C.J.: Totally rad, Launchpad!  It's a mysterious package.  

Launchpad:  Oh boy, the plot thickens, D.W..  

C.J.: Well you know what guys, this is really jammin' but I've gotta go find Mickey so we can finish up the show.  

Darkwing:  Patience, patience, C.J.

Launchpad:  Hey, hey, hey, hey, calm down.  Don't blow a gasket here.  

Darkwing:  First we need to inspect this piece of evidence.  Open it up!  

C.J.:  Alright.  Here it is.  (Opens box.)  Oh, I don't see anything in here, how about you, Launchpad?

Launchpad:  Nope, nothing here.

C.J.: Darkwing?

Darkwing: Just as I thought.  Now turn it around, completely around.

C.J. (spinning box with Launchpad):  Come on everyone, get a good look.

Launchpad:  Looks empty to me, all right.  

C.J.:  Sure does.

Darkwing: Thank you for sharing that keen insight, Launchpad.  Now, close up the box, C.J.  

C.J.:  Hey, there's something under this too!  There's a message!  

Darkwing: Well, go ahead C.J., read it!

C.J.:  Hold on a sec, it says, `Deliver to Darkwing Duck, Mickey's Starland.'  What does it mean, Darkwing?

Darkwing:  I have no idea.  Stand back, while I blast it.

C.J.:  Blast it?

Darkwing:  With my Mickey Mouse materialization ray!  

(He aims at the box and nothing happens.)

Darkwing: Or not.  

C.J.: Now you keep on trying Darkwing.  I've gotta go find Mickey so I'm out of here.  

(Darkwing stammers.)

Launchpad: And I've gotta go pick up Mr. McDuck and fly him back here in time for his big number.  See you later.  

(Darkwing stammers again.)

Darkwing:  Crime fighting is not as easy as it looks. (Looks at box.) Say, I wonder what this tag says?  Do not remove under penalty of- what?  Yeah right. (He rips the tag off and the box begins to make noise as Mickey pops out of the box.)

Mickey Mouse and Darkwing Duck

Mickey Mouse:  Golly, how did I get here?  Oh.  (Laughs.)  Hiya!  

Darkwing: Mickey found!  Another case closed!  Thanks to Darkwing Duck!  Come on everybody.  Let's give me a great, big hand!  

Mickey:  Sure!  

Darkwing:  Thank you!  Thank you!  (He begins to push the box off stage.)

Mickey:  Here pal, let me help you with that box.  

Darkwing:  Oh.  Thanks, Mickster.  Um, say, how did I do that?

Mickey:  Well, I'm trying to learn a new magic trick, right?  And the next thing you know, (realizes he's giving away the secret of the trick.) Oh, sorry folks!  (The Darkwing Duck theme ends.)  Hit it, D.U.D.E.!  

D.U.D.E.: That Darkwing Duck's a super sleuth,
he found Mickey, that's the truth.
Everybody clap, clap, clap.
Clap, clap, clap.  

C.J.: I don't suppose any of you have seen Mickey yet?  (Responding to the audience's affirmations.)  Well, which way did he go?  (Pauses for the audience to answer.)  Thanks!  D.U.D.E., keep the show rolling!  

D.U.D.E.:  You wanna smile, you wanna grin,
here's the stars from Tale Spin.  
You wanna laugh,
here's your chance.
With Baloo, Louie and Mickey. Dance!  

Mickey:  Hit it!  

(The Tale Spin theme begins.)

Louie: Let's begin it!  

Baloo:  Bear and grin it!  

Mickey:  Spin it!

Baloo: Alright kids, on your feet now.  We're all gonna do the Tale Spin together.  All you have to do is...

Mickey:  ...and now you gotta spin.

(D.U.D.E. encourages the audience to clap, clap, clap some more and C.J. comes back out.)

C.J.: Alright, I checked Main Street.  Mickey's not there.  Which way did he go?  

D.U.D.E.: Hold it, C.J. you can't go.  
You gotta help up with the show.  
The guys from Ducktales are the rage,
so bring them out here on the stage.  

C.J.:  Ok, but if I'm gonna do the song, I want all of you to help me out.  When we sing Ducktales, sing it with me just like this:  'Ducktales!'  Ok?
(Sings.)
Life is like a hurricane,
here in Duckburg.
Race cars, lasers, aeroplanes,
It's a duck-blur.
Might solve a mystery,
Or rewrite history.
Ducktales (oooh ooooh)

Scrooge McDuck:  Every day they're out there making
Ducktales (oooh ooooh)

Launchpad McQuack:  Tales of daring do and bad good
lucktales (oooh ooooh).

C.J.: Hey Uncle Scrooge and Launchpad  what's happening?

Scrooge: This dunderhead crash landed us right through the roof of my money vault!

C.J.:  No!

Launchpad:  Ah come on Mr. McD, I told you I could stop my plane on a dime.  Get it?  On a dime!  

Scrooge:  Launchpad!  

C.J.:  I don't get it. (Sings.) When it seems they're heading for the final curtain.

Scrooge:  We're the ducks that never fail!

C.J.:  That's for certain

Scrooge (Shoves Launchpad):  The worst of messes.

C.J.:  Hey!  

Launchpad: Become successes!

C.J.: Ducktales, whoo oooh.  You won't be believe the things they do on Ducktales, whoo oooh.  

Scrooge:  Buried Treasure.

Launchpad:  Dreams come true.  

C.J.: Good luck tales, whoo oooh.  
D-D-D-Danger! Watch behind you.

Launchpad (bumps into Scrooge): Sorry!  

C.J.: There's a stranger out to find you.
What to do? Just grab on to some Ducktales, whoo oooh.
Everyday we're out there making Ducktales, whoo oooh.  
Tales of daring do and bad good
lucktales (oooh ooooh).
Where deduction never fails.  
Ducktales, whoo oooh.  

(They head toward Scrooges vault and Launchpad shuts the door when they're in it.)

C.J.:  Oh, don't shut the door!  

Scrooge: Oh no!  Launchpad, why did you do that?  

Launchpad:  I guess I wasn't supposed to close that door, huh?

C.J.:  Of course not!  

D.U.D.E.:  He's closed the door,
it's not his fault.
But now they're locked up in the vault.  
The show won't stop,
we won't fail.
Come on Mickey with Chip and Dale!

(The stage fills with steam.)

Mickey, Chip and Dale (Singing): Sometimes some crimes,
go slipping through the cracks.

Mickey:  But these two gumshoes,
are picking up the slack.

Chip:  There's no case too big,
no case too small.

Dale: When you need help just call.

Mickey:  Ch-ch-ch-Chip 'N Dale's.

Chip and Dale:  Rescue Rangers.

Mickey:  Ch-ch-ch-Chip 'N Dale's.

Chip and Dale:  When there's danger,
no, no, it never fails.
Once we're involved,
somehow whatever's wrong gets solved.

C.J.: Mickey!  

Mickey: C.J.!  Is that you?  

C.J.: Yeah.  Uncle Scrooge, Launchpad and I are locked up here  in the vault.  

Mickey:  Gee, are you alright?

C.J.:  Um.

Launchpad. We're safe.  Get it?  Safe!

C.J.: Launchpad!  

Mickey:  Don't worry.  You'll be out in no time because guess what?  I've got Chip and Dale.  

C.J.:  Alright!

Chip and Dale: Rescue Rangers.  

Mickey: Ch-ch-ch-Chip 'N Dale's.

Chip and Dale: When there's danger,
no, no, it never fails.
We'll take the clues,
and find the where's the why and who's.

C.J., Scrooge and Launchpad: Help!  

Mickey: Gosh fellas, can you get them out?

C.J.:  I hope so!  

Chip and Dale: No problem!  We're Rescue Rangers!  

Dale:  Cracking a safe is a piece of cake.  

Chip:  Sure is!  

Dale:  Let's get them a rope.  Hurry.  

Chip: Ok.  I'm moving as fast as I can.  

Dale:  Mickey, you hook this end to the door.

Mickey: You betcha.

Dale:  Now stand back.  When I say `three', we all pull as hard as we can.  Ready?  Three!  

(They pull the rope and it breaks.)

Mickey: Oh no!  

Chip:  That's no way to count!  You never count the right way.  

Scrooge:  Help!  

C.J.: Help us guys!  Come on!  

Mickey: We had a minor setback.  But I'm sure their next plan will be dynamite!  

(As the continue to sing the Rescue Rangers theme song, they proceed to use a TNT detonator, which causes everything to go dark and a burst of steam to appear.  When it clears, all of the Disney Afternoon characters are on the stage.)

Baloo:  Man, what a blow out.

Louie:  You said it, Fuzzy.

Launchpad:  Good work!  

C.J. (to Mickey):  You saved us!  

Mickey:  Shucks.  They did all the work.  

C.J.: There you are, Mickey!  Well at least you showed up in time for the finale.

Mickey:  Oh boy, hit it, D.U.D.E.!

C.J. (sings):  It's been great to have you here, I guess it's pretty clear.  
There's so much to do.
And we do it just for you.

Mickey: Every kind of weather, we get together.

C.J.:  In the afternoon.

All: We always have such fun and the fun has just begun.

C.J.:  Any kind of weather, we get together.  
On a  Disney Afternoon.
Hey D.U.D.E., where did the time go today?
I'm so glad we had this time just to play.
I hope you made a bunch of new friends here.
We had the best time at Mickey's, at Mickey's Starland show.  

D.U.D.E.:  He's a hero, here and now. Come on Darkwing, take a bow.

C.J.:  Darkwing!

Darkwing: Thank you D.U.D.E..  Thank you too.  No really, you're too kind.  

D.U.D.E.: You know we had to do it again,
Baloo and Louie.  Talespin.

Louie: I'm gonna strut my stuff on out of here.  See you later.  

Baloo:  Yeah I'm gone, man.  Solid gone.  

D.U.D.E.:  You got a safe and made it back.  Scrooge McDuck and Launchpad McQuack.  

Launchpad:  Bye-bye!

Scrooge: See you.  Ow!  Launchpad!  You stepped on my foot!  

C.J.: Oh, Launchpad!

D.U.D.E.:  Chip and Dale,
you know your stuff.
You Rescue Rangers are too tough.

Chip and Dale:  Yeah.  That's right.  We're the Rescue Rangers!

Dale:  I get to bow first!

Chip:  No, I bow first!

D.U.D.E.: We couldn't end the show you see,
without a bow for C.J., C.J. and Mickey.  

Mickey: We had a swell time!

C.J.: (Sings) We had the best time.

Mickey: We had the best time.

C.J.:  At Mickey's, Mickey's Starland show.  

Darkwing: See you later, citizens!

(After all the characters exit except for Mickey, C.J. tells the audience about how they can meet Mickey at the Hollywood Theater.)

Alternate Show Versions

 The show was changed annually and featured the newest Disney Afternoon show each year while dropping the oldest show that was no longer part of the Disney Afternoon lineup.  The first year of this show featured the Gummi Bears in place of Darkwing Duck.  Once the St. Canard Crimefighter's show premiered in 1991, he replaced the bears.  The Ducktales characters were later replaced by Goof Troop.  The section with the vault was retooled to featured Goofy and Max.  In this version of the show, Goofy gets trapped in the house by his home security system.  Bonkers was also later added to the show as well.  
 The voice of D.U.D.E. was done by someone else in later shows and his rap changed slightly for characters that had been in the show previously.  For example, "Clap your hands for Darkwing Duck"  became "scream and yell for Darkwing Duck."  There were also other cases where recorded dialogue was later modified.  By 1993 when Scrooge and Launchpad had been dropped from the show, the Darkwing section had to be modified, with Darkwing's script changed and C.J. helping with the box trick instead of Launchpad.

                               Goof Troop at Mickey's Starland
 Mickey's Starland was completely remodeled in 1996 to include buildings that looked more permanent and reopened as Mickey's Toontown Fair.  Those hoping to see the land before it became Mickey's Toontown Fair may want to check out the episode of "Full House" when the family goes to Walt Disney World.  The twins are shown playing by some of the old building facades.  On February 11, 2011, Mickey's Toontown Fair was closed in preparation for the Fantasyland Storybook Circus.
