Frontierland

Find yourself in America's old west when you walk through these gates. Tied closely to the theming of Liberty Square the two lands combine to provide a near seamless experience.

Two of the park's "E-ticket" attractions are found in Frontierland in Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, a roller coaster, and Splash Mountain, on of the world's tallest flume drops. The rest of the area projects a more relaxed feel and shaded areas on the Rivers of America create great spots to take a break from the rush to see everything.

History and Trivia - Hide Section
  • At this location: Frontierland has expanded a bit over the years as Splash Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad were built in prevoiusly empty areas.
  • The Land's History: Frontierland opened in 1971 as a much more low key area, and most of what was in the land at that time is now gone; Country Bear Jamboree is the only original attraction left.

    Without any thrill rides in 1971, the focus was very much on Rivers of America. The Mike Fink Keel Boats (based on boats seen in two of the Davy Crockett television movies)survived until 1995. Also circling Rivers of America were Davy Crockett's Explorer Canoes, which operated seasonally and just kind of faded away at some point. The land also opened with entertainment and food in the Diamond Horseshoe Review which was replaced by Goofy's Country Dancin' Jamboree in January 2003, a show that lasted only a year before the entire location closed.

    1980 saw the first significant expansion of Frontierland with the opening of Big Thounder Mountain Railroad and the utilization of the surrounding area. In 1992, the area received another boost with the introduction of Splash Mountain.
