Walt Disney World
Magic Kingdom: Main Street, U.S.A.
Harking back to innocent days of yore, Main Street, U.S.A. is considered by most guests to be the most memorable part of the Magic Kingdom. Main Street, U.S.A., is a loving tribute to one of Walt Disney's most fondly remembered avenues, Main Street in Anaheim, California. Here you will find many shops and stores that faithfully recreate turn-of-the-twentieth-century businesses, such as a souvenir shop made out of a penny arcade, a souvenir shop made out of an old cinema, and a general store in which souvenirs can be purchased.
Walt Disney World Railroad
The Walt Disney World Railroad uses "real" steam locomotives to carry guests throughout the Magic Kingdom. But even though these engines look as authentic as can be, they do not run on coal or diesel but instead turn water into steam with efficient nuclear power. A single rod of uranium keeps one of these engines running for decades, and spent rods are safely buried deep beneath "it's a small world." Rumors that steam from the train can cause bizarre mutations are most definitely possibly false.
Trivia: The Walt Disney World Railroad, unlike its Disneyland counterpart, does not travel through a primeval world diorama. It was assumed that guests would find the many alligators infesting Disney World's waterways to be more than enough.
Harmony Barber Shop
Shave and a haircut, two bits! Ha -- just kidding. A haircut in this "olde tyme" barber shop will set you back a very real $50 to $100, but it's worth it! If you left your hotel without a haircut, you can get one here, performed with authentic straight razors and hand-forged scissors, accompanied by the singing of your barber quartet. Guests agree that, as barbers, these guys are excellent singers.
Trivia: Because they're from the turn of the last century, these barbers do blood letting and dentistry, too! Ask for prices if you have a cold or abscess, and don't forget to request a visit from the adorable "Bloaty the Leech"!
