    I've never heard of Main Street U.S.A. in MK being based off any particular location - rather, it is a representation of architectures of various places.

    Main Street U.S.A. at Disneyland is I believe more closely based on Walt's home town in Missouri specifically, but with other influences as well.

    Saratoga Springs was obviously the influence behind the resort of the same name when they rebuild the Disney Institute.

    I would say BOOO!!! Walt's visions as the founding father of Disney World should be upheld, just like our Founding Fathers vision (constitution) is still our supreme law!!! Sorry Government teacher rant

    I think the houses DEF should survive, just not on Main Street. The houses have a lot of history and when Toon Town is gone, we are going miss it (I will at least, and I'm sure I'm not alone!) We are going to want some kind of tribute to remember it by, and preserving the houses is perfect. Up rooting Mickey and Minnie's houses and relocating them is a GREAT idea, but they have to find a better location then Main Street USA. I like the suggestions about Hollywood Studios. But I think they should set aside a tiny section next to the new Fantasyland/old Toon Town for the houses. It can be a secluded little section off the beaten path so to speak, set aside as a tribute to "the Land that used to be."
