Have you ever noticed those old-fashioned vehicles out in the morning on Main Street, U.S.A. in the Magic Kingdom? Did you know that you can ride on them?
The Main Street Vehicles usually run from park opening until only 10:15 a.m. and offer one-way rides from Town Square to Cinderella Castle, and vice versa. Vehicles include a horse-drawn trolley (which is also used in the Main Street Trolley Show), a double-decker omnibus, an old-fashioned fire engine and an old-fashioned car. It varies which vehicles are out each day.
The Main Street Vehicles are a must-do for my preschooler, and we have to ride each vehicle that’s out before moving on to other attractions. The great thing about the Main Street Vehicles is that there is hardly ever any line to ride, and it’s like being in your own personal parade down Main Street, U.S.A.
Note: The double-decker omnibus is the only vehicle that you can take a stroller on (fold it up, and the cast member will load it for you). Also, if you are on a vehicle while the Trolley Show is happening, you may have to wait in the vehicle a few minutes until the show passes.
Tip: Want to ride the horse-drawn trolley? Try catching the last stop of the Trolley Show right in front of the train station (check the Times Guide or My Disney Experience app). When the performers are done, the horse will be moved to the opposite end of the trolley, and then it will be available for a ride to the castle.
Pros: There’s usually no wait to ride, and it feels like an exclusive, pixie dust experience. Many times we have been the only people in the vehicle, and it feels like our own personal parade float.
Cons: Since the Main Street Vehicles usually only run until 10:15 a.m., you will lose some of your rope drop advantage at the beginning of the day.
