Yesterday, February 6th, marks the birthday of Walt Disney's father, Elias. He was born in 1859 in Ontario, Canada. Like many others in the Disney family, as well as important figures in the Disney company, there is a tribute to Elias in a window on Main Street. It is actually on "Center Street" and it makes reference to the fact that Elias was a general contractor who opened his own contracting office in 1895. This is just another fun detail that most guests never notice.
