The Victorian aesthetic of Main Street USA makes for one of the richest environments to enjoy at Disneyland. Unfortunately, I don’t often spend time in the shops. I’m too busy galavanting through the rest of the Park and avoiding crowds, which typically means avoiding places like the Emporium. When I do manage to find my way in, I am always in awe of my surroundings. No, I’m not talking about the Mickey Mouse glove potholders or the Sleeping Beauty Castle shaped photo frames. What impresses me is simpler. I usually can’t even make it past the doorway. It may sound strange, but taking the time to enjoy all of the creativity and craftsmanship that surrounds you at Disneyland makes a visit better than you can imagine.
