Making a triumphant return to Disney World, Main Street is back, brighter and better than ever. Lit up by LED enhanced lighting technology and special effects, this sparkling parade weaves its way through the Magic Kingdom. Leading the parade is Tinker Bell, lighting the way with a swish of her wand, spreading fairy dust as she goes. Inspired by "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," the beloved dwarfs are "off to work, hi ho" toiling in a mine, where they may make some glittering discoveries.
Main Street is the opening introduction for the Magic Kingdom. You pass under the train station (the opening curtain), and then you view the opening credits on the upper stories of the main street buildings. Look out for the windows with business names such as "Seven Summits Exhibitions, Frank G.Wells President", as all of these people had some kind of connection to Disney.
Main Street at Walt Disney World features stylistic influences from all around the USA, and is lined with shops selling merchandise and food. The decor is early-20th-century small-town America, inspired by Walt Disney's childhood and the film Lady and the Tramp. City Hall contains the Guest Relations lobby where cast members provide information and assistance. A real working barber shop gives haircuts for a fee. The Emporium carries a wide variety of Disney souvenirs such as plush toys, collectible pins, and Mickey-ear hats. Tony's Town Square and the Plaza Restaurant are sit-down restaurants. In the distance beyond the end of Main Street stands Cinderella Castle, an iconic view that represents all things Disney.
