Hi there!

Hello, and welcome to A View of the (Walt Disney) World.  This site is dedicated to all things Walt Disney World, and occasionally Disneyland.  I'll be sharing pictures, reviews, fun facts and planning tips, as well as whatever else I may think of.  With that in mind, let's get started!

Walt Disney's Main Street Window, Magic Kingdom, WDW
Seeing as Walt Disney was in love with trains (so much so that he had a rideable model train in his backyard), it is only appropriate that Walt's name graces a window above the Main Street train station.  The Main Street windows at Walt Disney World and Disneyland all pay tribute to some of the most important people in the history of the parks.

Fun Facts:
1.  The highest WDW window pays tribute to former Disney CEO Frank Wells.  Wells was an avid mountain climber, and he is also alluded to in Disneyland's Matterhorn attraction.  Look closely for crates labeled "Wells Expedition" the next time you ride!
2.  Fess Parker, TV's Davy Crockett, is the only person to have a window off Main Street.  His is in Frontierland in Disneyland.
