Blog about playing on the Main Street municipal vehicles.

*******************************************

Itís no secret to parents that young children are fascinated with various methods of transportation. By extension, that makes getting around Walt Disney World even more appealing for families. Who can resist monorails, steam engines, ferries, water taxis, buses and even parking-lot trams?

Recently, my family discovered a transportation opportunity near the entrance to the Magic Kingdom that we had yet to encounter ó police cars, a firetruck, a double-decker bus, motorcade cars and the Main Street Trolley parked around Town Square. Guests are invited to climb aboard and check out the old-time vehicles. They can pose for photos in the driverís seat, honk the horn or take a ride to Cinderella Castle and back. My children even were given firefighter hats when they explored the firetruck.

The Town Square vehicles are most often seen in the mornings, before the the first Move It! Shake It! Celebrate It! Street Party. Because the Main Street Trolley has long been a favorite for my son, we knew seeing the trolley parade and riding the trolley meant rolling in before lunch. We just hadnít arrived early enough to see the collection of other modes of transportation.

The unpublished times for the trolley parade this week are 7:30, 8:20 and 9:15 a.m. daily.
