The Magic of Main Street

Walt Disney wanted to his guests to feel as though they were embarking on an adventure when they visited his parks and as soon as we walk through the turnstiles and into the Magic Kingdom, the Magic begins. From the rides and attractions to the theming and costume, Disney truly does set the stage for our grand adventure .

Under the train station, as we move towards Town Square, our adventure begins to unfold while we pass movie posters for upcoming attractions. The poster of Merlin reminding us that there is such a thing as Magic, the Wishes poster that reminds us that dreams really do come true, and finally, the Jungle Cruise poster that reminds us that our adventure awaits. Like the entrance into a grand theater, this entrance into the park is an invitation to suspend reality and become part of Walt's immersive theatrical experience.

Main Street USA

Every aspect of Walt Disney World  focuses on Walt's show and with Main Street USA, he's able to tell the story of the origins of the park by creating a sense of Hometown America. Modeled loosely on his childhood home of Marceline, Missouri, Main Street USA brings us a sense of familiarity while at the same time, building upon our excitement and anticipation. From the smell of fresh, hot popcorn to the bellowing tones of the Dapper Dans and all of the other citizens of Main Street, this is when the magic really takes over.

In the upcoming days, we will be taking a look at all of the many wonderful and magical aspects of Town Square and Main Street USA. Hopefully, we'll be able to bring some of the Disney magic to you, wherever you may be.

Thanks for reading.
