Main Street Vehicles

Non-stop transportation.

Join the hustle and bustle of turn-of-the-century life by catching a ride on one of the "modern" motor vehicles between Town Square and Central Plaza.

Travel in style in the Limousine, get around in a dash on the Fire Truck or enjoy the view from the top of the Omnibus! Each of the vehicles has its own stopping place at each end of Main Street, shown with a 'City Vehicle Stop' sign.

Main Street Vehicles

Fire Truck (12 passengers) — An authentic turn-of-the-century fire truck, in bright bronze and red colours, provides guests with an open-top mode of transport around the town. Luckily, the Volunteer Fire Dept. are never too busy in the sunny, smiling surroundings of Main Street, U.S.A.

Omnibus (35 passengers) — A truly modern mode of transport! As people have more places to go and more people to see, the Omnibus is a unique double-decker bus for so called "public transportation" around the city. You can shelter down below or sit up-top for a great view over the street. The sides are decorated with advertisements for the street's profitable stores.

Limousine (8 passengers) — Travel in the back of a personal carriage "just like the good old days"... but with a trusty gas-powered engine pulling you along!

Mercer (2 passengers) — Prefer not to join the rush of public transport? Flag down the ornate cream-coloured Mercer car and travel in style along the street for a unique journey to Central Plaza. Often used only as a prop or for character appearances.

Paddy Wagon (8 passengers) — The Paddy Wagon ensures Main Street is always smiling, collecting up the frowning criminals and hauling them off along the street! Luckily that's a very rare occurance, so the Paddy Wagon can spend its days providing unique old-timer rides for all!

A sixth vehicle, the Main Street Deliveries truck, is not available for rides but can be seen traversing the street selling refreshing beverages.

  • Whilst the Main Street Vehicles may look like priceless antique transportation, few of them have ever dated from the turn of the century. Robert Gurr designed the original vehicles in 1954 and 1955 using modern means and engineering, simply designing them to look like "the real thing". The only genuine antique of the original Omnibus in Disneyland California, for example, is its authentic klaxon horn!
  • Main Street, U.S.A. in Paris has the largest collection of Main Street Vehicles of all of the magic kingdom parks. Upon opening, it offered guests the chance to ride aboard the Fire Truck, Omnibus, Limousine and Paddy Wagon. The Fire Truck and Omnibus both had their original 1955 designs updated and "plussed" for the new park, whilst the Limousine is new and the Paddy Wagon was based on the Horseless Carriage of the American parks and in its Parisian form has fewer seats.
  • The Main Street Deliveries truck is unique to Disneyland Paris and was designed exclusively by DLP-I, the Paris branch of Walt Disney Imagineering, and built by Severn Lamb in the United Kingdom, who also built Eureka, the Disneyland Railroad's fourth engine, as well as the engines of the Hong Kong Disneyland Railroad.


  • Not all the Main Street Vehicles operate at once, so keep a look out and check your chosen mode of transporation is running before waiting at the corresponding "City Vehicle Stop" sign. Vehicles will also stop running during parades or other entertainments which take up the street.
  • Vehicles provide a shuttle service only, from Town Square to Central Plaza or visa-versa, not a complete loop.


  • Transfer required.
