    Lightbulb New Main Street Grand Marshal Vehicle

    I got this from WDW News Today:


    A new Grand Marshal vehicle has debuted in the Magic Kingdom theme park, carrying guests of honor down the daily parade route in grand style. To fit the theme of Main Street, USA, the vehicle was designed after a 1912 touring car. The new vehicle’s design also allows guests in wheelchairs to board easily and ride in the main seating area. Also an added touch of the new vehicle — Mickey Mouse tread designs on all four tires and the spare tire attached to the rear. (Garth Vaughan, photographer)

    As a tire gal, I love those tires. And that car is sweet-love the classics.

    Disney rocks, Walt was a genius.
