Take a Tour of Main Street, U.S.A., in Disneyland Park with Imagineer Kim Irvine

Earlier this year, one quarter of Main Street, U.S.A., in Disneyland park reopened with a new look and new spaces. From the delicious decor in the Candy Palace to the new display in The Disney Gallery, the magic truly is in the details. Discover these details in the video tour below from Walt Disney Imagineering, hosted by Imagineer Kim Irvine, then stop by Main Street, U.S.A., to see them for yourself!

(And look for a special cameo at the end of the video from someone you Carnation Café fans might recognize!)


  • Loved seeing Oscar at the end!!! Coming to see you next week Oscar, I cant wait!

  • We’ve met Oscar a few times while having breakfast at the Carnation Cafe. Every time, he is the epitome of what Walt Disney wanted in his cast members. I wish they could clone him!

  • Looks wonderful. We go in a week and a half and I can’t wait. 🙂

  • Great post. I really love the video blogs because I love seeing places around Disney….especially because I live so far away in Australia. Can’t wait to go back!

    • Keep an eye out then, Rebecca, because Shannon Swanson has been working on some great videos about the holiday season here at the Disneyland Resort!

  • I’m glad to see that Main Street still has that old-time look and feel to it. I was worried that the renovation would be more of a modern one and that M.S. would lose its classic Disney magic. No matter how many times i’ve been to Disneyland I always look around M.S like it is my 1st time and I don’t want to miss anything.

  • Chef Oscar! I’ve read so much about him. He made me wish I would have eaten at Carnation Cafe during my trip. He simply seems like a wonderful human being.

  • I really want to see the castle exhibit! Any idea how long that will be there for?

    • Brooke – The Crowning Achievements exhibit at the Disney Gallery is scheduled to run through early 2013.

  • Erin,

    Another great post!! It’s really neat to get a glimpse of “what was” and feel a little nostalgic; then see the new changes being made! We really enjoyed the Gallery above Pirates and miss it a lot (also the balcony seats for Fantasmic). The new Gallery is excellent though and the tie in to Mr. Lincoln and all the other Park history makes for a wonderful setting.

    Any idea on how a “commoner” can book a night in the Dream Suite????


    • Thanks, Mike! Unfortunately, the Dream Suite is not available for booking, only for rare, special opportunities. But you can see what a night in the suite is like in this post from John McClintock.

  • Love this!

  • Yay Oscar!
