Matt Anderson's Take
The Main Street Vehicles are old-timey vehicles that run through Main Street U.S.A in the Magic Kingdom. These vehicles include a horse driven trolley, an old automobile named Jitney, a two story omnibus, and an old Fire Engine (which doesn't move).

The Fire Engine is something the kids can walk up to and play on a bit. The other vehicles actually move and travel from one end of Main Street USA to the other end. They're designed as one-way transportation so if you want to make a round trip you have to get off and (potentially) get back in line.

These are simply transportation and mostly done as part of the vibe and ambiance of old-timey Main Street.

I enjoy them mostly for the nostalgia. Not really the best way to get around Main Street but if you have time and aren't in a hurry it is actually a fun way to travel.

I can appreciate that, back in the day, these were possibly some fun, novelty attractions that guests would enjoy. I also understand that today they're real purpose is more for nostalgia and ambiance than anything else.

Even with all of that in mind, I really don't like the Main Street Vehicles at all. Main Street USA is crowded enough basically all day long and now we have to fight through a smaller space as these vehicles pass by? And what happens when the horses leave a mess of road apples behind?

They don't get you from Point A to Point B quickly. They don't really even take the burden off of tired feet considering how short of a distance they travel. All they seem to do is cost money (maintenance and Cast Members) that could be better spent elsewhere. The final nail in the coffin for these vehicles, well specifically the trolley I suppose, is that the annoying steel tracks in the street are a great way to twist an ankle or annoy you as a stroller wheel gets caught in the tracks.

Seriously now, nostalgia simply for nostalgia's sake is pointless. I'd bet even old Walt would agree. After all, this is a park that is never going to be finished and always changing so it's okay to get rid of stuff like this.
