|Main Street Attractions|
Discovery Arcade, Liberty Arcade & Statue of Liberty Tableau
On either side of Main Street run two covered arcades, offering cover from the weather and rear access to the shops. They are decorated with gas lamps and wrought iron work. On the right hand side of the street is Discovery Arcade with cabinets featuring inventions from throughout the ages, showing how man has advanced his position.
On the left hand side of the street is Liberty Arcade which include Liberty Court, a tribute to the Statue of Liberty which has stood over New York harbor for more than a century. The Statue of Liberty Tableau is a recreation of the 1886 dedication of the statue .
Disneyland Paris Railroad
Main Street Station evokes the luxury of turn of the century rail travel with old-fashioned prams and leather luggage litter the platform in anticipation of the next train. Four authentically-styled locomotives travel the 2.2 km track. Each is beautifully painted and fitted for the period. Carriages are open on one side offering good views of the park as the train travels on its 20 minute journey.
There are further stops on the trip at Frontierland, Fantasyland and Discoveryland. Traveling between Main Street and Frontierland you will pass through the Grand Canyon Diorama, based on the attraction at Disneyland California it is a 200 foot long tunnel, representing the scenery of the Grand Canyon.
Although effectively a large mural, the lighting, music and sound effects all combine to make this a fun experience. Beyond the diorama the train emerges at Thunder Mesa, steaming towards Frontierland station.
Main Street Vehicles
A wonderful selection of old-fashioned vehicles awaits to transport you up Main Street In addition to the horse drawn streetcars are a fire truck, a limousine, a police paddy wagon and a double-decker omnibus. A ride on the top deck of the omnibus offers a great opportunity to inspect the detail on the upper portions of the Main Street buildings. This is also a good way to rest those weary feet.
