Description

Main Street USA is a themed land at Magic Kingdom styled parks run by The Walt Disney Company. This photograph shows the Magic Kingdom at Disney World, Florida. Main Street USA mixes architectural styles from around the United States at the turn of the twentieth century. Like a real Main Street, Main Street USA is lined with shops and restaurants. It is the first part of the park that is seen by guests, and the names on the buildings are positioned to read like the opening credits in a film.
