Main Street,U.S.A. creates a warm, nostalgic feeling in the hearts of Guests young and old. The clacking of horseshoes and inviting scent of freshly baked waffle cones harken to a bygone era and often marks the start of what is sure to be an unforgettable day.
The welcoming charm of Main Street,U.S.A. also holds a special place in the hearts of Cast Members. Among the architecture of the shops resides our own hall of fame-windows dedicated to those who have made a lasting impression on our Resort, and Walt Disney himself.
Honorees who have been immortalized with a window boast impressive backgrounds. Elias Disney, Walt's father, worked as a contractor and inspired Walt on his journey in creating Disneyland. X. Atencio penned the lyrics for every scalawag's theme song - "Yo Ho (A Pirate's Life For Me)." Harriet Burns designed and constructed the chorus of birds for The Enchanted Tiki Room. The list goes on and on, and in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Disneyland in 2005, all Cast Members were recognized with their very own window for the impact that each and every one of us makes on Walt Disney's original vision.
