THEN AND NOW: MK Main Street, U.S.A.

Main Street, U.S.A, Magic Kingdom

Fresh new "Then and Now" comparisons! Main Street has remained largely the same on the outside. The interiors have changed time and time again. You'll notice some color changes and of course those trees keep changin'. 

Bonus

Something we miss: The traditional hand-crank sewing machines that offered FREE names on those classic Mickey ears. I smell a future post all about this 50+ year tradition replaced by newer technology. Fear not... the new-fangled way is not all bad.


Most "then" photos were sent to us via our Photo Hunt. Credits coming soon.

YEAR IN REVIEW– 2011

Let's look back at some popular posts of 2011.

Walt Disney's Carolwood Pacific and Other Backyard Railroads
We did lots of investigating in order to map out Walt Disney's very own backyard railroad and compare it to the current property.

 

EPCOT Center Construction Photos: Future World
We dug up some fantastic old construction photos. Many had never posted online before.

 

National Geographic Aug '63
This two part post was very popular. Filled with amazing Disneyland photos from the early 60s.

 

 

Ride Concept Competition
Our first-ever competition was a huge success. We asked for your ideas for new rides and received so many great ones. You can check out the winners here.

 

ABANDONED DISNEY: Haunted Mansion Hitchhiking Ghosts
An exclusive behind-the-scenes look at one of the greatest attraction special effects of all time.

 

Not Having Fun at Disneyland
Old Disneyland photos of kids not having fun at Disneyland. Fun for a laugh!

 

ABANDONED DISNEY: River Country [Part 4]
Our most popular post of all time is still our first River Country post. Subsequent River Country posts are also very popular. Take a look at Disney's only abandoned park.

 

Bin Laden Mansion Minutes From Walt Disney World
The day Osama bin Laden was captured and killed we discovered that his brother had a mansion minutes north of Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom. The home is now abandoned.


Walt Disney Studio Post Production Behind-the-Scenes
We found this fantastic video about Walt's studio. Lots of great footage.

 

Lake Buena Vista: The Other Prototype City with a Peoplemover
A Peoplemover and a Monorail at Downtown Disney?? It was supposed to happen.

 

EPCOT Center Graphics
Enjoy Mitch's custom graphics inspired by and featuring some of that wonderful Future World architecture.

 

Frito Kid Mysteries Continue
The very obscure and mysterious Frito Kid once lived at Disneyland. We pin-point his exact locations.

 

THEN AND NOW: Disneyland [Part 1]
Our "THEN AND NOW" series is one of our most popular. We've posted many comparisons from Walt Disney World in the past. This year we've added Disneyland.

 

Create Your Own Background Music
Quite possibly the most fun you'll ever have clicking around one of our posts. Easily create music with a click of a mouse. You might need this when scoring your own attraction.

 

Thanks for a great year. We are thrilled to welcome many new visitors. Keep coming back and feel free to join us on Twitter for daily tweets.

Here's a look at last year's Year in Review.

THEN AND NOW: Epcot World Showcase [Part 2]

World Showcase, Epcot

Canada

United Kingdom

\

Sometimes when you hit a home run the first time at bat, there is no reason to reinvent your swing. With very few changes, World Showcase is just about as pleasant as it was in the early years. 

And luckily Future World is just as fantastic as it was in the early years. I kid, I kid. It's really not even close, so let's think about WS for a bit.
