Main Street Vehicles – Fire engine
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.
While many Walt Disney World guests rush through Main Street, U.S.A. to get to the Cinderella Castle and all the rides, there are quite a few things to do on this quaint turn-of-the-century American thoroughfare. On your next trip to the Magic Kingdom, take some time to explore and enjoy these top 15 things to do on Main Street, U.S.A.
1. Ride the Main Street Vehicles
One of my preschooler’s favorite things to do at the Magic Kingdom is ride in these classic, turn-of-the-century vehicles. The Main Street Vehicles include a horse-drawn trolley, a roofless jitney, an old-fashioned fire engine and a two-story omnibus, and they provide one-way rides from Town Square to Cinderella Castle and Cinderella Castle to Town Square. There’s hardly ever a wait for rides, but you have to get there early – the Main Street vehicles usually only run until 10:15 a.m.
Here are some important things to know about taking a stroller to Walt Disney World.
In the Parks
- Strollers are not allowed in any of the attraction lines (or inside the Land pavilion at Epcot). Instead, you must park your stroller in a designated “Stroller Parking” area. These are conveniently located throughout the parks and easy to find (just look for the sea of strollers), but if you can’t find one, a cast member will be happy to point you in the right direction.
- Your stroller will probably be moved – but it’s okay! Cast members are constantly moving strollers around within the same stroller parking area to keep everything in order.
- Tip: Tie something bright on your stroller to make it easier to find (a ribbon, sign, etc.).
