    If you want to spice things up, make Main Street more like Rio de Janeiro! Also, I would suggest a parade based on Carnival.

    I've looked at images of the buildings of International Street at both Kings Island and Canada's Wonderland, but I think they look more like Fantasyland than anything.

    I think I will go with that "whimsical" style of Main Street and save the international theme for the center of the park. Maybe call it International Expo Garden?

    The only question is, what can the name of this whimsical "Main Street" be called? It seems to have some semblance of Downtown Disney, which will also be part of this resort.

    I'm not sure, maybe Magic Avenue?

    What about Disney Avenue, a main street in which each facade is themed to an individual traditionally animated Disney film, and each film is represented? (Example: WWII themed building represents Victory Through Air Power, thin London building represents 101 Dalmatians, clock tower for Cinderella, New Orleans building for Princess and the Frog, etc.) That way you have a quirky, vibrant Main Street, but it stays true to the Disney theme.

    That would make it too much like Fantasyland, I think. And the name sounds too generic, I think. I'm going with the whimsical style I thought of earlier.

    Curiosity Boulevard? Whimsical Way? Dream City? Curiosity Commons?

    Whimsical Way sounds the closest. Or maybe Street of Whimsy. Or maybe it could be Dream Street, like this early concept for Hong Kong Disneyland:

    Incidentally, similar to this map, in this Brazilian Disneyland, Adventureland and Frontierland will be merged into one big land.

    So for Dream Street, the train station will look something like this:

    The station will have an eatery in there, probably called the Dream Street Whistle Stop, a coffee shop (sponsored by Starbucks, obviously), and you can take these drinks and small snacks on the train if you want.

    This train around the park will be the first time it is a cross between an attraction and a snack spot. The railroad, like the snack spot in the station, will be sponsored by Starbucks.

    That's quite clever. How would you design the trains? You could potentially base them off steam engines from Brazil's past, like these ones.

    Those look good, except I would shape the trains more like they do at other parks.

    I understand, stick to the roots. Now, would it go through any rides and/or dioramas?

    I don't know, mainly because I haven't really got anything planned out yet.
