Visitors to the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World enter through the gates and into yesteryear as they step onto Main Street U.S.A. Walt Disney created Main Street U.S.A. to capture the spirit of the main street from his hometown of Marceline, Missouri. When vacationing at the Walt Disney World resort in Florida, plan to spend some time enjoying the sights, sounds and flavors of Walt’s Main Street U.S.A.
Main Street U.S.A. is an Attraction
While it’s not a ride like the Pirates of the Caribbean, Main Street U.S.A. is considered an attraction. It stretches for two complete blocks with shops, storefronts, eateries and even a working barber shop. It’s also home to City Hall and the Walt Disney World Railroad.
Main Street Vehicles
Catch a ride on an old-time vehicle! The Main Street vintage vehicles include antique cars, a jitney, a fire engine, omnibus and even a street car. One-way trips pick up at the transportation stops in Town Square and in front of Cinderella’s Castle at the central Plaza. The Main Street Vehicles do not run during parade times.
Meet Mickey and Tinker Bell
Mickey Mouse and Tinker Bell meet and greet guests at the Town Square Theater, across from Tony’s Town Square Restaurant. FastPass+ is available for this meet-and-greet.
Get a Haircut
The Harmony Barber Shop on Main Street U.S.A. is a real, working barbershop that takes appointments for all ages for haircuts as well as shaves plus beard and mustache trimming. Make your child’s first haircut extra special by having it done at Disney. The barbershop offers a special My First Haircut package that includes a certificate and commemorative Mickey Ears.
Main Street U.S.A. always is bustling with something to see and do. Take a moment to enjoy an ice cream from the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor and listen to the Dapper Dans barbershop quartet perform or catch the Main Street Philharmonic play. There’s also the Main Street Trolley Show that performs multiple times daily.
View the Flag Retreat
Daily at 5 p.m., the Magic Kingdom performs a Flag Retreat in the Town Square of Main Street U.S.A. Cast members and guests say the Pledge of Allegiance and there are patriotic songs while the flag is lowered and folded. Each day a special guest is chosen to participate in the Flag Retreat. It’s a great moment to share with children of all ages.
Main Street U.S.A. in the Magic Kingdom is so much more than just the most popular location to watch the park parades. It’s a vibrant attraction that must not be overlooked. Browse the shops, enjoy the different treats from Casey’s Corner or the Main Street Bakery and pose for pictures on one of the most famous streets in the world.
