Main Street USA

As you first enter The Magic Kingdom this will be the first "land" you will encounter. As you make your way under the Walt Disney World Railroad Station you will already be able to feel like you have been transported from reality to Disney's version of a turn-of-the-century Main Street. Main Street is divided up into four "blocks", Southwest, Southeast, Northwest, and Northeast. At the Southern part of Main Street is the Town Square Area where you can find The Main Street Railroad Station, and City Hall. At the Northern part of Main Street you can find the "hub" of the park which will lead you to the other six lands of The Magic Kingdom, as well as to Cinderella's Castle. There are a few minor attractions here, and over a dozen stores selling a variety of clothing, character merchandise, camera rentals, chocolate, and those mousekeeter hats.

Walt Disney World Railroad
The Walt Disney World Railroad is powered by a real 1928 steam engine which circles the entire park making brief stops at Frontierland and Mickey's Toontown Fair. The railroad is a great introduction to The Magic Kingdom giving guests a preview of all seven lands.
 
Walt Disney World has three locomotives, The Lilly Belle named after Walt Disney's wife, The Roger E. Broggie named after an Imagineer who helped Walt Disney layout the scale-model train in his backyard, and The Roy O. Disney named after Walt Disney's older brother.
