Walking Right Down the Middle of Main Street USA!

There is no better feeling then stepping foot onto Main Street USA at Walt Disney World. Whether it is your first time or 100th time, this is such a special part of any Walt Disney World vacation.  Getting that first glimpse of Cinderella Castle is truly breathtaking. There are so many fun and unique things to do all before you enter any of the lands of Magic Kingdom. The attention to detail literally sets the stage as you enter the beloved Magic Kingdom. The Main Street USA Railroad Station acts as a curtain, hiding all of the wonderful adventures out of sight as you enter. Main Street USA serves as a red carpet leading to the hub to enter all the lands and of course leading right to Cinderella Castle.

Town Square

 

 

As you enter into the Magic Kingdom you will find a turn of the century American Main Street. There you will find City Hall, which is home to guest services. At the Main Street Fire Station, guests can pick up Sorcerer’s of the Magic Kingdom game cards for an exciting and fun-filled scavenger hunt type game throughout the park.  In need of a haircut? The Harmony Barber Shop is a working barber shop that can freshen up any “do”. One special thing guests can do, is have their child’s first haircut there which includes a baby’s first haircut certificate. Across the way you will find Town Square Theater which is home to character picture spots for Mickey Mouse and Tinkerbell. You will also find the Photopass headquarters here along with some shops.  Make sure you take a ride on the Walt Disney Railroad and check out the various pictures and mementos found underneath the Main Street train station that highlight how near and dear trains were to Walt Disney.

If you have never taken the time to look up at the various windows throughout Main Street USA, make sure you take a peek the next time you visit. Important figures from all aspects are honored with their names on windows throughout Main Street USA.
