Frontierland - Magic Kingdom

Florida Guide > Magic Kingdom

Spend a few hours in Frontierland and you will witness what it was like to live in America’s past. You will see frontier America in the days of the covered wagon and the stage coach, and understand how the railroad played such a big role in the future of this country.

Frontierland is situated to the north of Adventureland and to the southwest of Liberty Square, and you can get to it from both lands. Built along the waterway "The Rivers of America, " Frontierland's mountain ranges, dance hall, shooting gallery, fort and rustic log cabins, make it easy to transport yourself back to the time of Davy Crocket.

As with other lands Frontierland has Fast pass attractions. The two here are for Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and Splash Mountain. I recommend you go straight to these and obtain a Fastpass for the one with the longest wait time, this is usually Splash Mountain.

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is a themed roller-coaster with turns and dips through caverns, mountains, avalanches and floods reminiscent of the Old West.

The queue area takes you into the headquarters of the Big Thunder Mining Co. You enter converted ore cars for your journey but unfortunately there is no conductor, you are off for a 3 minutes and a half-minute ride into the wilderness! Hold on tight as you roller-coast your way through the Old West on a runaway mine train.

Splash Mountain is where you board a log ride through Brer Rabbit's Laughing Place. The five-story drop makes it one of Magic Kingdom's favourite thrill rides. You will get wet on this ride. To minimize this, you might want to wear a rain poncho, or ask to be seated in the middle of the log. If you want to get really wet, though, ask to sit up front!

At Diamond Horseshoe you can meet and greet Woody and Jessie from Toy Story 2.

Be sure not to miss the Country Bear Jamboree, which is located in Grizzly Hall just past the Frontierland Shooting Gallery and before Pecos Bill Café. This is a theatre-style attraction with audio-animatronic characters. You will be entertained to about 15 minutes of country music performed by 18 bears, a raccoon, a buffalo, a stag and a moose the likes of which you will never have seen before!

My father usually finishes his visit to Frontierland at the Shooting arcade where shots are just 2 cents. We visit Briar Patch, located next to the Splash Mountain exit. In this shop you will find an assortment of Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, and friends related merchandise.

If you want souvenirs of the Old West go to Frontier Trading Post. Here you can buy items including cowboy hats, sheriff's badges and Native American headdresses.

If Frontierland is your last stop of the day enjoy a gentle ride back to Main Street by catching the World Disney Railroad from Frontierland Station.
