A Place Where Dreams Come True
The happiest place on earth is known to be Disneyland. A day at Disneyland has the magic that you wont be able to find anywhere else. When Disneyland was built, it was built for the young and the old, a place where families can take their children. It is a place that promises dreams to come true. Disneyland is a place where children smile in bliss and adults fly back in their childhood innocence. Spending a day at Disneyland is like walking into the movies of your childhood, those movies that gave you the hope of becoming one of those beautiful princesses or a hero. Disneyland has many great aspects for being the place where dreams come true. Rides, shops, shows, and characters are just a few of the many reasons. Allow me to walk you through the world of Disneyland and the lands of wonders, a place where dreams come true.
Walt Disney’s perspective on building Disneyland was having space to build rivers, waterfalls, and mountains; he would have flying elephants and giant teacups; a fairy-tale castle, moon rockets, and a scenic railway; all inside a magic kingdom which would be what he called Disneyland. Walt also wanted Disneyland to be an affordable for people to go and enjoy with family and friends so he went to television for his financial support and television series offered a glimpse of the future project. Once that went into action everything else was happening and Disneyland became a reality for Walt and the American people. “When the real designing came around, Walt was met with inevitable questions. How do you make believable wild animals, that aren’t real? How do you make a Mississippi paddle ship” (justdisney.com)? The questions would continue and so Walt went to his movie studio staff for the answers. That is when Walt began designing these beautiful lands into a magical kingdom where people’s dreams can come true. Each land that was built in Disneyland was built for its own purpose as I mentioned above. Walt was very précised with how he wanted Disneyland to be built and if he didn’t like what he saw, he would do it himself. He was very well aware and was very close to every detail of the Park’s constructions, and he visited the site several times a week.

As you keep walking down this street you also see all the publicity shops, well-known restaurants, sports shops, Lego World, and all the main attractions that catch people’s attention. Hearing the jazz music all along the street through hidden speakers playing as you are walking down this street makes you feel as if you are traveling back to Puritan times in Washington. Disneyland also has a White House type of structure, with its pillars and even horse drawn streetcars. Once you are reaching the end of the street, there is a statue made of some sort of gray metal, it is Walt Disney holding Mickey Mouse’s hand.
Main Street U.S.A. is transportation back to the early 1900s. When this street was built inside Disneyland it was inspired by Walt Disney’s boyhood hometown, Marceline, Missouri. In this main street, Walt Disney had his own apartment on the second floor of the Firehouse. Walt Disney once said “For those of us who remember the carefree time it recreates, Main Street will bring back happy memories. For young visitors, it is an adventure in turning back the calendar to the days grandfather’s youth” (Walt Disney).
