Windows on Main Street U.S.A.

8 Comments

One of the things I wanted to pay attention to on this trip, were all the windows on Main Street U.S.A. If you didn’t know, the windows honor people important to the parks and Disney. One of my favorites is Richard and Robert Sherman’s window.

I recently watched (affiliate link) The Boys: The Sherman Brothers Story a documentary about the Sherman Brothers. It really taught me some new things about them. In the film I learned that every Friday Walt Disney would ask them to “play the song”. He wanted them to play “Feed the Birds” from Mary Poppins.

Some of my other favorite windows are for Mary Blair and Tony Baxter. What is your favorite window?

  1. I didn’t know that about the Main Streetwindows! Next time I’m on Main Street, I’m going to really “window shop” and pick a favorite!

  2. I never paid attention to the windows either, but I like that interesting piece of trivia. I enjoyed reading about the Sherman Brothers in your blog today!

  3. I don’t think I have seen the Main Street windows – but now I will know to look for them!

    I am definitely going to watch “The Boys”. I love documentaries about people in entertainment, especially in the early (or at least, earlier) days of Hollywood. Thanks for telling us about it.

    • I really liked “The Boys” because it went into the history of their songwriting. “Waking Sleeping Beauty” is also a good one if you haven’t seen that yet. I got it at the library.

      • I picked up “The Boys” & “Waking Sleeping Beauty” from the library today. Can’t wait till I have time to sit down and watch them.

        Thanks for the information & recommendation. I’ll let you know what I think 🙂

  4. You’re welcome! I hope you enjoy the movies!
