Disneyland Emporium window dioramas - These displays have been enchanting guests on Mainstreet USA since the 1970’s. It takes a team of ten Cast Members to refurbish them nightly. It is their job to make sure the displays stay clean and current.
“You know this is one of my favorite times of the day here - just about sundown. I like to be around when the lights come on. It seems like a new kind of magic takes over in Disneyland after dark.” - Walt Disney
July 24, 1989: The Town Square Cafe reopens as Tony’s Town Square Cafe, on Mainstreet USA.
Originally an open air restaurant, I’m sure the unpredictability of Florida’s weather was a key factor in enclosing this dining venue. Now completely enclosed (and air conditioned!), Tony’s Town Square restaurant is themed after the restaurant that Lady and the Tramp went to to share that infamous bowl of spaghetti and meatballs. One of the few places in the world that it is 100% appropriate to nudge a meatball across the table to your honey with your nose!
