Step back into the wild, wild west in Frontierland. Frontierland opened as one of Disneyland’s original lands. It is themed after the old western United States and home to Walt Disney’s favorite ride: Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. While walking around Frontierland, look at the ground beneath you. You’ll see horseshoe prints and a path mimicking the old West sewage system. Although it only has one major ride, Frontierland is the gateway to several attractions. The Mark Twain Riverboat and Sailing Ship Columbia provide a relaxing tour of the Rivers of America. If you have a small child, ask a cast member if they can steer the boat! Eat at The Golden Horseshoe and enjoy a lively show of comedy and music. The Frontier Shootin’ Exposition is a great shooting arcade game all kids will enjoy. During the fall, Frontierland is decorated for Dia de los Muertos, celebrating Mexican culture. If you love the old West, stop by Frontierland.
