Out of all the themed areas of Magic Kingdom, Frontierland is the closest to the Golden Age of Disney entertainment on television and the silver screen. There are shades of the Old Mickey Mouse Club series and classic Disney films, but the attractions never lose their appeal, especially favorites like Big Thunder Mountain Railway and Splash Mountain. With Discount Disney World Tickets and Disney World vacation packages, the yesteryear of Frontierland is more accessible than ever. Here is what visitors can expect when they step back in time in Magic Kingdom’s Frontierland:

Frontierland Overview:

Other attractions in Frontierland include the Walt Disney World Railroad, which makes a stop here, and the animatronic musical revue of the Country Bear Jamboree. Children especially like to run around the secret passageways on Tom Sawyer’s Island, which can be accessed by a short ferry boat ride.

For budget conscious souvenir hunters, here is a tip: be on the lookout for Disney World pressed penny machines, like the one in the Briar Patch. These machines are located throughout Magic Kingdom and all of the Walt Disney World parks. For 51 cents guests can have a genuine “Made in the USA” keepsake penny for their collection or a pressed quarter for $1.25. Pressed penny passports can usually be found in the Emporium gift shop on Main Street USA, and other large gift shops throughout Walt Disney World.
