Today In Disney History ~ January 26th

Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin is a dark ride located at the Disneyland and Tokyo Disneyland theme parks. It is inspired by the 1988 Disney and Amblin Entertainment feature film, Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Both versions of the attraction are located in Mickey’s Toontown. The Disneyland version opened on January 26, 1994, a year after the Mickey’s Toontown area opened, and the Tokyo Disneyland version opened on April 15, 1996.
The queue of the ride winds through dark narrow alleys, the Ink & Paint Club, and the weasels’ hideout in Toontown where guests can overhear the weasels, Jessica Rabbit, and Baby Herman talking, setting up the plot of the ride. The queue eventually enters the Toontown Cab Company which is the boarding area. Guests board a yellow toon cab named Lenny, the twin cousin of Benny the cab. Each cab seats two people, and the cabs are dispatched in groups of two. At the beginning of the ride guests encounter Roger Rabbit and Benny, spinning out in a puddle of “DIP” spilled by the weasels, and the guests’ cab drives into the dip as well. At this point, the steering wheel of the cab becomes active, and the cab can then spin around, much like Fantasyland’s Mad Tea Party. The attraction’s storyline focuses on the weasels’ plot to kidnap Jessica and “Dip” Roger.
At the start of the ride’s queue, some license plates hanging on the wall have code-like puns of various Disney characters or slogans. They include 2N TOWN (Toontown), BB WOLF (Big Bad Wolf), MR TOAD (Mr. Toad), 1DRLND (Wonderland), 1D N PTR (Wendy & Peter Pan), IM L8 (I’m late – The White Rabbit), CAP 10 HK (Captain Hook), L MERM8 (The Little Mermaid), 101 DLMN (101 Dalmatians), FAN T C (Fantasy), RS2CAT (Aristocat), ZPD2DA (Zip-a-dee-doo-dah), and 3 LIL PIGS (Three Little Pigs).
