Disneyland Main street smaller?
I've never been to Disneyland, but I was just looking at some pics my friend took there last Christmas, and Main Street looks MUCH smaller there compares to WDW. Why is that? I thought all the same forced perspective technics were used. Could it be because WDW heads uphill toward the castle? Are the buildings actually smaller? Am I just going crazy?
I believe in Happily Ever Afters.
WDW's Main Street uses a larger scale design and a broader range of architectural styles. Also, the forced perspective is even better controlled than at DL and Sleeping Beauty's castle is smaller than Cinderella's, all contributing to a larger Main Street.

One of the Disney travel shows revied the structure of WDW. The lower floors are to scale and then as the second floors and roofs peak, the structure narrows in, using much less space, but visually making the appearance of a full scale town.
THought that was neat. Will have to note that this trip....

I found Disneyland's Main Street narrower than WDW's and the castle size does make a huge difference.
Here is a pic I took in April.
It is smaller than WDW,because Disneyland was built on a small piece of land than Magic Kingdom had.
