While visiting Magic Kingdom recently, we decided to take a stroll down Center Street (about halfway down Main Street USA, across from The Emporium) and found an updated window display tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the main drag. This particular window used to feature Daisy Duck and a “fresh cut” flower display.
Now, the window display features a glimpse into a traveler’s journey. The display features the same red brick backdrop as the Daisy Duck display, but that’s where the similarities end. A prominent sign behind the bench sets the stage: a waiting area at a train station.
Not really a light packer, the luggage in the display offers a glimpse into our traveler’s life. They’re clearly a fan of the Main Street Confectionery popcorn offering, with a half-eaten bag being favored over the fresh apple. A reader and a photographer, the traveler has a copy of Francis Parkman’s The Oregon Trail.
A pocket watch sits on top of redeemed transportation tickets styled to the old tickets that used to be sold to grant access to transportation options at Walt Disney World for the day. If you think the nickel-and-diming is bad now, imagine paying for access to Magic Kingdom, then paying for a ride to Magic Kingdom on the monorail, and then paying per ride!
Here’s a look at the rest of the display.
I’m not sure when the display was switched out, but it was certainly interesting enough to stop by and snap a few photos before continuing our day at Magic Kingdom!
