A Walk Down Main Street USA

Main Street, U.S.A. is the first "themed land" inside the main entrance at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom and other Disney Parks around the world. As you walk beneath the train station overhead, you cross through a portal to another time. You notice that there's a Victorian theme throughout Main Street, yet the architectural styles represent several distinct areas of the country. Though Walt's original inspiration for Disneyland's Main Street is said to come from Marceline, MO the two have very little in common these days, and even less with Walt Disney World. Main Street at WDW differs from Disneyland in that you will find the buildings have stylistic influences from around the country, rather than just representing one small midwestern town.

The buildings on Main Street appear to be taller than they are by the used of forced perspective. The second stories of all the buildings along Main Street are shorter than the first stories, and the third stories are even shorter than the second. The windows of them all are each beautifully painted with a business name on it, such as "Seven Summits Expeditions, Frank G. Wells President", they represent important Disney Legends and Imagineers that helped shape the Park. The transition through this area serves as the opening credits to all the magic awaiting you.

Inside the buildings on Main Street, you will find a nostalgic array of home town goodies that make great souvenirs. City Hall hosts the Guest Relations lobby where friendly cast members can provide information and assistance. It's here you can also get as guest assistance card and lodge a compliment or complaint. At the Harmony Barber Shop you can stop in and get a haircut for a fee. The Emporium carries a the largest variety of Disney souvenirs that you will find within the Magic Kingdom. All along the Street you'll find stores with fun and unique merchandise.

Tony's Town Square and the Plaza Restaurant are table service restaurants where you can stop to find a relaxing sit down meal. The Main Street Confectionery with it's showplace candy kitchen offers up sweet treats and foodie souvenirs. The Main Street Bakery is the first spot you hit for some coffee and a cinnamon roll in the morning. At Casey's Corner you can pick up a hot dog and fries in traditional American ballpark style. The corn dog nuggets are my favorite. Just beyond the end of Main Street stands the Hub and Cinderella Castle.

As you walk towards the Castle and Hub you leave behind the familiar Americana of Main Street. The "Partners" statue, depicting Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse stands there to greet each guest. The pair at the center of it all. Smaller statues surround the hub depicting favorite characters from which dreams were created. Beyond the hub you leave the familiar and travel to worlds filled with adventure, fantasy and exploration.

Do you wander through the shops? Can you not leave without a some hand made sweets? Leave a comment and let me know what your best Main Street memories are!
