Main Street, USA, at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World

Main Street, USA is the welcoming and entrance area of the many Disney Magic Kingdom-style parks around the world.


Based on Walt Disney's hometown of Marceline, Missouri, Main Street is the official entrance into Disneyland, the Magic Kingdom, Tokyo Disneyland, Disneyland Paris and Hong Kong Disneyland. Although the three international Main Streets have slight variations, they are all themed around a late 1890s/early 1920s American town.

The only Main Street that Walt Disney himself strolled down, Disneyland's version is even listed as a real street in the Orange County Thomas Guide.

The Disneyland Paris Main Street has a slightly different theme - the decor is more 1920s than turn-of-the-century, with influences from the flapper and rag-time all over. The Main Street at Hong Kong is much like the Magic Kingdom's, with detailed fascias and shops emitting fumes that attract all the senses.
