Main Street U.S.A. runs from Town Square to Cinderella Castle and serves as the gateway to the enchanting world of Disney’s Magic Kingdom. This charming entranceway was designed to look like an idealized version of an early 1900’s American town (more specifically, Marceline, Missouri, the town where Walt Disney himself grew up). Various specialty shops, restaurants, attractions, guest service booths, photo centers and Disney characters can all be found along this magical route into the theme park.

Guests approach Town Square at the beginning of Main Street, U.S.A. via tunnels underneath the Walt Disney World Railroad.

To the right, you will notice the Town Square Exposition Hall, which houses Disney’s PhotoPass Center (hosted by Kodak), Tony’s Town Square Restaurant and a pin trading kiosk. Town Square itself is an ideal locale for autograph and photo opportunities with some of Disney’s most popular characters. In addition, a flag ceremony takes place at Town Square daily at approximately 5 PM.

Attractions near the entranceway to Disney’s Magic Kingdom include the Walt Disney World Railroad, an authentic steam-powered train that travels the perimeter of Disney’s Magic Kingdom (train stations are also located in Frontierland and New Fantasyland; Main Street Vehicles, a fun-filled journey aboard an old-fashioned fire engine, horse car, jitney, horseless carriage or omnibus; and the Main Street Electrical Parade, which combines incredible special effects and all your favorite Disney characters into an unforgettable extravaganza.
