1. Main Street USA Marker
Inscription. Walt Disney's hometown of Marceline today is much as it was when he lived here. The first plans of Disneyland show a remarkable resemblance to the town, with it's store fronts on main street and locomotives coming and going. All who enter Disneyland travel down the main street Walt created from his memories of his childhood in Marceline. He hoped to give all visitors the impressions and sensations he had in Marceline as a boy. Walt wanted people to feel comfortable, he wanted them to feel like they were coming home. Welcome to the original Main Street USA.
