A Lesson in Perspective
Second Story Name Dropping on Main Street U.S.A.
The second story windows along Main Street U.S.A. have names and titles on each. The names are in honor of Imagineers and prominent Disney folks including Walt Disney. You’ll see his name at the beginning and end of the street- just like in the opening and closing credits of a movie.
Rolling Out the Red Carpet
Where you walk on Main Street U.S.A. can mean the difference between trolley tracks or getting the VIP treatment. The sidewalks are red- and WDW’s way of rolling out the red carpet for its guests. I knew I felt special…
Let There Be (a Lesson in) Light
As you begin your walk down Main Street U.S.A., check out the lighting on both sides of the street. Disney is so brilliant when it comes to U.S. evolution (think Liberty Square’s buildings), so the lights when you enter are representative of gas lamps and the end of the street closest to the castle offers electrical lamps.
Main Street U.S.A. offers its guests fun, free, and interactive shows throughout the day, and Citizens of Main Street U.S.A. are always hanging out and they LOVE chatting with folks! Hit the time right and you can catch a trolley show, the flag lowering ceremony, and the Dapper Dans- one of my family’s favorites.
You Know You’re Hungry
This one was so well planned by Imagineers: all of the dining offerings on are the right side of the street as you walk in and stores are on the left. Why? Most folks walk on the right side of the street and are hungry when they hit the park, so to make it easier, WDW creators strategically placed food on the right. Why shopping on the left? Because you can’t leave without picking up a little something.
