Main Street U.S.A. (Happily Ever After, Confectionery, Mickey Mouse)

We’re walking right down the middle of Main Street, U.S.A. and loving every single second.

There is no Magic Kingdom without Main Street. This land is the first place you see as you enter the most magical place on earth.

There’s also a lot of history on this street thanks to it being modeled after Walt Disney’s hometown of Marceline, Missouri. Plus, there are all kinds of hidden Easter eggs celebrating Imagineers.

While there aren’t any major attractions, besides the railroad, there’s plenty of shopping, dining, and entertainment, including the parade and fireworks.

Here is everything you’ll encounter during your magical time on Main Street.

Attractions

You can find two attractions on Main Street.

WDW Railroad – Main Street, U.S.A Station

A steam train that takes guests on a loop around all of Magic Kingdom. There are 3 stops – at the end of Main Street, in Fantasyland (back by Storybook Circus), and in Frontierland between Tiana’s Bayou Adventure and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.

Main Street Train Station
  • Height req: None
  • Suitable for: Anybody
  • Attraction length: About 20 minutes to do the whole loop
  • Do we recommend? Yes, as both a time filler and as a method to get to the other side of the park
  • When to visit: Anytime
  • Lightning Lane available: No
  • Eligible for Early Entry: No
  • Tip(s): This is a great attraction to ride if you have a little one that needs to rest since you can stay on it as long as you like. You can get on and off on any of its 3 stops so it is also a good way to save some steps if you need to cross the park.

The Walt Disney World Railroad has a station located on Main Street U.S.A. You can’t miss the station, since it’s the first thing you see as soon you scan into the park.

We recommend everyone ride the train. It’s an iconic attraction, with great views of the park and is also a good transportation method if you want to get to one side of the park to the next.

Main Street Vehicles

omnibus sign at magic kingdom

You’ll encounter a vintage horse-drawn trolley, omnibus, jitney, or fire engine that give guests rides up and down Main Street.

These aren’t always in operation, including during parade times. The best time to try to hop on one is first thing in the morning.

Entertainment

Parades and cavalcades can be seen from Main Street, as they make their way from Frontierland.

Festival of Fantasy Parade

Festival of Fantasy parade
  • Location: Standard parade route – Magic Kingdom
  • Type of character experience: Parade

  • Tip(s): After the final Christmas Party of the year, this parade is replaced with the Once Upon A Christmastime Parade.

Of course, there is also Happily Ever After, nighttime entertainment with fireworks and projections that happen on the castle and down Main Street. 

Happily Ever After

  • Shown nightly except on party nights or select holidays
  • Show Length: 18 minutes
  • Music: Mix of popular Disney tunes from its animated movies with an original song titled “Happily Ever After” performed by Angie Keilhauer and Jordan Fisher
  • Summary: Happily Ever After replaced Wishes in 2017 and quickly became a fan favorite. The show encourages all dreamers to find their own “Happily Ever After” by taking them on a storytelling journey spanning 7 chapters: Wish, Adventure, Friendship, Love, Adversity, Heroes Fight Back, and Peace Restored. It was temporarily replaced by Disney Enchantment during the 50th Anniversary Celebration, but returned in April 2023

Happily Ever After is not to be missed. It’s a fantastic show, with an amazing soundtrack, stunning imagery, and the chance to see Tinker Bell fly. 

You should definitely grab a spot no less than 60 minutes before showtime.

There are also several smaller forms of entertainment that occur daily on Main Street. You can find times and locations in the My Disney Experience app.

These include:
