What Is Mickey Mouse Trying to Hide?

April 26, 2021, 10:27 PM · Who needs "go away green" when you have "implausible deniability?"

There's a big construction project happening on the north side of Disneyland these days, as the park works on its installation of Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway, which is scheduled to open in 2023. The project's so big, in fact, that there's no practical way to hide it from looming over Toontown.

Typically, Disney paints the show buildings it would like you to ignore in its famous "go away green" color. But with a building as big as Runaway Railway, Disney has decided to send its First Couple to tell guests that there is nothing to see here.


What big building? That’s just Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, opening 2023! ?? ##Disneyland ##Disney ##HowWillTheyKnow ##Toontown ##California ##Anaheim

"What Big Building?" Exactly. Through Disney Magic, I guess we don't see a thing.

I would say that Disney should of used the “churro stand” excuse, but that’s a Universal thing.

I see they’re taking a page out of Universal’s book

Micky and Minnie need to work on their Jedi mind tricks. That's definitely a building behind them. They should spend some more time next door on Batuu.

Hopefully they’ll cover it up with more hills or something. Its impossible to hide everything, but since there are already fake green hills nearby, that seems like a easy solution.

It's in line with Toontown's blank sign that says:


Please do not pay attention to any printing you see on this sign. We only wrote this to let you know this is a blank sign. With nothing on it. Except this message.
