Where is City Hall in the Magic Kingdom?
City Hall in the Magic Kingdom is a picturesque building located at the entrance of Main Street, U.S.A.

The exterior features intricate detailing, ornate trimmings, and a charming color palette that evokes a sense of nostalgia and warmth.
The facade of City Hall showcases a grand entrance with a central clock tower, topped with a distinctive weathervane depicting a classic Mickey Mouse silhouette. This iconic weathervane is a playful nod to the magic that awaits inside.

Charge Your Phone
It can be difficult to find an outlet to charge your phone in the Magic Kingdom. You have to admit that the look of outlets is less than magical. Keep the City Hall in your back pocket when your phone needs a little juice.
It’s always a good idea to know where the restrooms are in the parks because when you gotta go, you wanna know! There is a large restroom attached to City Hall in the same building.
More on the Main Street, USA Fire Department…
No, this isn’t a real fire department, but it is still a cool sight to see! You will see a small firehouse when you step inside with a tribute to firefighters throughout the century. Perhaps the biggest draw is the wall of fire company patches from firefighters all over the country.
If you or someone you know is both a firefighter and a Disney fan, bring your fire company patch and Disney will add it to their display!
The Firehouse on Main Street, USA, used to be home to the start of the Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom, an interactive game that guests could play throughout the parks for free. The game ended in 2021, but we still have our eye on the firehouse to see if and when a new interactive game opens!
I am a mother of three that has refused to grow up. Adulting is for the birds, so I go to Disney World every chance I get for that magical escape from reality. I believe that Haunted Mansion is the best ride in all of the Disney Parks, and I am fervently in team Happily Ever After for fireworks spectaculars, (sorry, not sorry, Enchanted). Finally, I hope I never grow tired of skipping down Main Street, USA, and my dream come true would be “friends with” the Fairy Godmother in my old age.
