    Did YOU know today’s Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia about Magic Kingdom’s Main Street, U.S.A., and Liberty Square?

    Walt Disney Imagineering orignally wanted to pave Magic Kingdom’s Main Street, U.S.A., and Liberty Square entirely with bricks. However, that proved too costly, so they used bricks only on the side streets and paved the walkways of Main Street and Liberty Square with red cement. (Via Lou Mongello’s Walt Disney World Trivia Book Volume 2.)

      Great trivia about one of my favorite places of the park! Love the history!

        When I first read it, I thought they meant the street itself was red, and I was thinking, “No, it’s not! Lou Mongello is wrong!” LOL!

      I’ve also read that they used red cement to contrast with the green grass/ trees to make your photos pop more! :)

        Ah, never thought of that!

      I have also read that all onstage areas are Red (like the Red Carpet) so cast members know to stay in character until the road isn’t red…. there are even areas backstage where it is red because guests can still see the CMs

        That’s cool!

      I love that even the details of the sidewalk were so well planned!

      • http://www.magicalmouseschoolhouse.com/ Jodi / MagicalMouseSchoolhouse

        Yep, they don’t miss a beat!

      Great trivia! I like the red cement. It is also cheaper to redo and upkeep which helps the ticket prices from being skyhigh (though a bit expensive as they as) LOL :)

      • http://www.magicalmouseschoolhouse.com/ Jodi / MagicalMouseSchoolhouse

        That’s true! I’m all for keeping those prices low…and I’d like to see them even lower, lol!

      I knew Main Street was paved with red cement, but I did not realize they origially wanted to use bricks. Thanks for sharing this!

        Yeah! Interesting, isn’t it?

    • Beka Caudill

      Interesting. I’ve also heard that the red cement is used as a contrasting color to the green landscaping to make it pop more.

        Yep, it does do that too!
