About Marceline

General Information

Marceline is "Where Walt Found the Magic."

We are the hometown of Walt Disney, where he spent a great deal of his childhood years.

Main Street USA at the Disney theme parks are inspired by downtown Marceline and a walk down this original Main Street USA gives visitors the same feeling that Walt experienced as a boy.

The beauty of Marceline is further enhanced by its small town friendly and casual atmosphere.

Marceline is located in North Central Missouri, 3 miles south of US36 and halfway between St. Joseph and Hannibal.
