Main Street Attractions

If you are anything like myself, you are so concentrated on getting to your favorite theme park attractions that you forget that as soon as you walk into the Magic Kingdom you are on Main Street which includes many attractions!  Since none of these attractions are the core thrill rides, I often did not even consider them attractions.  However, once I was a mom, life slowed a bit and I found the attractions on Main Street!  Here are a few that I regularly now enjoy:

1.  Shopping – My son and I love meandering through the various stores found on Main Street.  Of course, this attractions is rather pricey at time!  I love the Disney Dooney and Bourke handbags available on Main Street and they frequently change the patterns on the bags making for fun shopping each time I visit Main Street.

2.  Silhouettes – Get your profile made into a silhouette.  The process takes only moments and lasts a lifetime.  A great souvenir.

3.  Street Cars – There are many vehicle types on Main Street.  You can catch the cars as you enter the Main Street and take a leisurely ride all the way to the Central Plaza.  Some of the vehicles are motorized, while others are pulled by horse.  It is fun traveling by way of these vehicles and slowly riding down Main Street watching others enjoy their day!

4.  A bite to eat – There are several great places to grab a bite to eat.  You can get some ice cream from Ice Cream Parlor or a hot dog from Casey’s Corner.  While enjoying the hot dog, be sure to see if the piano player is outside playing a tune.

5.  Hair Cut – Getting your hair cut on Main Street can be a great attraction for anyone!  You can get glitter or just a trim but the experience is wonderful!

These are a few of the great attractions you can experience on Main Street. Recently a meet and greet with Mickey Mouse has been added.  I have not experienced seeing him there yet but hope to soon.  What are you favorite Main Street attractions?

    6. Music, music, music – I could make a day of listening to the Dapper Dans, The Sax quartet the Dapper Dans, and the Piano man at Casey’s Corner, the Dans and Philharmonic end their day with the flag retreat ceremony, but the Piano man usually still has a set or two after that.

    7. the citizens of Main Street U.S.A., weather you are just catching the Main Street welcome ceremony, just chatting with the citizens, or participating in a sing-a-long they may lead with the sax quartet, these folks also add a lot to my days at the Magic Kingdom.

    Don’t forget about the hidden movie theatre on the right, as soon as you enter the park with face cut-outs for fun photos or a place to get away from the weather and the chaos. Stop by the Hat Store, on the right next to the candy shop for some fun moments trying on goofy hats (no pun intended, ha!) And while your at it, stop by Guest Relations on the left and pick up a few celebratory buttons, even if you’re not celebrating a special occasion, its fun to be silly sometimes!
