Different Kind Of Windows

Today we head back to Main Street U.S.A in Disneyland Paris, and take a look at a different kind of window. The windows of the Main Street U.S.A. train stations (or the Euro Disneyland Rail depot).

A beautiful form of detailing, which I imagine is often - and wrongly - overlooked by the average guest, is the stained glass windows above the entryway to Parc Disneyland. Each section in the window represents a different weegie (or focus-point) within the various lands of the Parc.

Can you make out what each stained glass represents?

The pirate ship from Adventureland and Skull Rock.

Sleeping Beauty's Castle (le Chateau de la Belle au Bois Dormant) - the gateway to Fantasyland from Main Street U.S.A.

The Riverboat(s) from Thunder Mesa, Frontierland.

The Orbitron, in Discoveryland, and the gateway to other planets.

Each window highlights a different gateway to the lands of the Parc, just like the train station itself is a gateway to Main Street U.S.A.
