Oo la la! A look at Disney in France
Disneyland Paris: Unique Journeys - A photo essay by Ian Parkinson

Legends of the Wild West

Disneyland Paris has several attractions that are similar, or in some cases identical, to those found in Disneyland and Walt Disney World. One example of this is 'The Legends of the Wild West' attraction.

Although the attraction in this form is unique to Paris, you can experience the same western theme in Frontierland locations around the world. In Disneyland and Walt Disney World, the forts you find on Tom Sawyer Island offer many of the same concepts, if not the detail found in Paris.

At Disneyland Paris, rather than locate the fort on an island surrounded by the Rivers of America, the Imagineers have placed the attraction right at the entrance to Frontierland, giving it a prominent and eye-catching position.

As you enter Frontierland, you pass under one of the many walkways that form part the attraction. From these walkways, visitors have a bird's eye view of other guests entering the Wild West themed area of the park.

Most of this walkthrough attraction is located on the upper floors of the buildings surrounding the entrance to the Frontierland. It should be noted that it is not accessible to physically disabled guests, as there is no elevator and many steps.

As you wander through the attraction, you move between rooms with scenes showing how people lived in the past.

In the jailhouse, you will find a prisoner in his cell waiting to be released.

In a room on the ground floor, a lone gunman waits for his next victim.
