    Main Street U.S.A. at Disneyland - Pictures

    My picture threads consist of images I have taken that focus on the architecture, landscape architecture, planning, design, and theming of the facilities highlighted. They may also contain short descriptions and commentary, but will not focus on construction progress or special events or memorabilia or food selections or my traveling companions. Hopefully these threads are a good introduction for those who have not seen these places yet. All killer, no filler!

    Main Street U.S.A. photographed in January and December 2008:
    The entrance to the park is entered through tunnels on either side of the main Disneyland Railroad station; on the other side is Town Square, which narrows to the street itself for several blocks before ending at the circular Hub from which the other lands radiate. Main Street is an idealized American small town of 100 years ago and is composed of Victorian style buildings garnished with brightly painted woodwork and lined with lights; inside are guest services, shops, restaurants, and two theater attractions, the Main Street Cinema which plays looping early Disney cartoons and Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln which showcases an ode to the President and his political philosophy. Directly on axis with the street is Sleeping Beauty's Castle, the entrance to Fantasyland, which creates a dramatic backdrop for viewing fireworks.













































    Enjoy!

    2008 or 2009?

    Other than that, I love how detailed and themed Disneyland is. Nowhere else can you find this level of an entrance at a theme park!

    I love Geomorph's threads! But I have my trigger button handy on 2009 Main Street, I'll go ahead and add a few.


    A view from the Markethouse (my old store)















    Light up balloons are cool






    Inside the Plaza Inn. Watching Walt Disney talk about this restaurant made my mouth water.















    A daily occurrence. "clean up on aisle MAIN"






    Always nice to see the CMs interacting with the horses






    That's all i got!

    That is correct. At the time it was the only place in the park that offered free refills! It was the happiest bit of info I could ever tell someone.
