I usually assume that I shall start at the beginning and finish at the end. And so I shall here.
|YEAH! MAIN STREET! WHY AM I SHOUTING?!|
Many of us have mindlessly passed under the famous plaque that marks the entrance to Main Street USA without so much as a glance. “Here you leave today and enter the world of yesterday, tomorrow, and fantasy.” That's what the plaque reads. What does it mean? Where does it take us? Patience, my padawan.
|"...and entitled tourists."|
|Most American small towns also have Swiss peaks behind them.|
Then, there are the shops, all hidden behind the neat facade. We can find watches, hats, touristy gizmos, snacks, did I mention ice cream up there? No. Well, ice cream! But, when I first enter at opening there is usually only one thing on my mind:
|Oh look! A glass elephant!|
This place is set up like an ice cream parlor you would expect to find on Main Street, U.S.A. It's ice cream, and it's in Disneyland. If you're looking for ice cream in Disneyland, this is the place for you! If it's gumbo you're after, you will be severely disappointed.
That wraps up Part 1 for now. We shall continue our tour of Main Street at a later date. If you can't wait, I suggest buying a TARDIS, DeLorean, or some sort of wild ass phone booth in front of a Circle K and go about mucking with the time-continuum.
