Main Street, U.S.A.

Main Street is the transition between the real world and that fantasy world of Disneyland, and it is a soft transition. Set as the main street of a midwest American town around 1900, it has all the civic insitutions you'd expect of any small town with aspirations for something bigger. City Hall greets you on the left and the Opera House on the right. Stores line the street with a small cinema on one side and penny arcade on the other.
