Frontierland

Frontierland paints a Disney picture of America’s westward expansion. This is a great place to see America in the “wild west” days. You can even pick up an old western rifle and try your hand at hitting some pretty neat targets. Yeee Haaw! Some of Disney’s best attractions are here. Check them out …

Frontierland Attractions

The Attractions here are big and bold. There aren’t as many as in Tomorrowland but these are some of the best in the Magic Kingdom.

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad takes you back to the gold rush times where Der’s Gold in Dem Der Hills. Climb aboard the fastest train in Disney World. Hold on to your hats. Not only is the ride pretty wild, but the scenery is just amazing. Try to keep your eyes open so you can check out this beautiful

Country Bear Jamboree

A little down-home country entertainment. That’s what you find right in the middle of Frontierland. Down-home country entertainment brought to you by a bunch of big furry bears. It’s a cute little country show that will never make it to Nashville, but will have you singing right along. Read more about Country Bears Jamboree.

Tom Sawyer Island

The younger set will enjoy Tom Sawyer Island. It’s a great playground for kids. It was modeled after the classic Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn novels. The kids will have a ball. The island is cut off from the rest of the Magic Kingdom. It’s only accessible by the rafts that go back and forth. A nice place to get away for a while.

Disney World Railroad

The train makes a stop right behind Splash Mountain all aboard the train that encircles the park. Uncle Walt loved trains. He had one in his backyard. This one is a good way to see the backside of the Magic Kingdom.

The Parades

Frontierland is a good place to watch the Disney World parades. In fact most guidebooks steer guests to this area. That probably explains why it’s so crowded around parade time. If you come early (and are willing to protect your ground) you can get a real good look at the afternoon parade.

Festival of Fantasy is the afternoon parade. It typically starts in Frontierland and winds it’s way to Main Street.  Don’t miss this, especially if you have kids.

Frontierland Dining

The only dining in Frontierland is Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe. It serves hamburgers and fixins, lots and lots of fixins. The fixins bar is legendary.

Dad’s Bottom Line

Frontierland is more than just the “mountains”. But the “mountains” are pretty good. Make sure to spend some time here.
