Animal Crossing: New Horizons Player Turns Island Into Disneyland

They've got Pirates of the Caribbean, Haunted Mansion, and churro stands.


Animal Crossing: New Horizons player and Redditor khalee5ii isn't letting the pandemic lockdown stop them from visiting Disneyland. They've recreated the happiest place on earth within their Animal Crossing island.

They've got some of the park's major landmarks and rides mapped out. You can find the Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean, the Mad Tea Party, Indiana Jones, and other rides complete with their own space to line up just like the real Disneyland. There are also plenty of spots for photos, including one on the Splash Mountain log ride. They shared images from their island on Reddit.

This is just one example of the many creations Animal Crossing players have come up with. One player built a playable Mario Party board on their island while another is recreating the entire Dunder Mifflin set from The Office. Nintendo's recent August update brought the Dream Suite to New Horizons, making it much easier to share in-game creations online.

Disneyland is closed indefinitely during the pandemic. The park was set to begin reopening on July 17, but a spike in new COVID-19 cases throughout California forced park officials to delay the reopening. The park has no current plans to reopen, so Animal Crossing islands like this may be the best option park-goers have until it's safe for theme parks to reopen.
