Disney's Toontown Online is a kid-friendly take on the popular Massively Multiplayer genre. Traditional MMO elements such as combat, character progression, experience points, and player versus player competition all make an appearance in varying degrees while under the safety of a determined chat filter and other grief-eliminating features. Players work together to take down the evil Cogs (a band of robots who seek to make life boring for the residents of Toontown) while familiar Disney characters, such as Goofy and Mickey Mouse, appear to help players along the way. When not saving the city, players can ride the trolley to player competitive and cooperative mini-games with each other to earn Jelly Beans, Toontown's official currency.
There are nine different types of toons to create in Toontown and many different combinations of species, colors and clothing.

- Seaweed Street
- Barnacle Boulevard

While in these HQs the player goes in to face the boss of that Cogs HQ, after a successful venture into the HQ the player receives the next part of the next highest level cog to level their cog characters eventually getting to the top level cog.
Each category of Cogs have eight individual Cogs.
