This is Frontierland, the legendary American West, where the rivers still run free and anyone's dream can turn to gold.


Yeee ha!  You've arrived in Thunder Mesa, a bustling town at the height of the gold rush. Cool off and survey your territory on a riverboat from Thunder Mesa Riverboat Landing, before setting off for the great frontier and setting your sights on gold at Big Thunder Mountain, as the wildest ride in the wilderness takes you on a plunging, twisting journey around the legendary peaks. Avoid a flooded mineshaft and toppling rocks, as you rumble through the deserted caverns of this stunning landscape.

The haunting music and eerie wails from the mansion on the hill draw you closer, to discover the dark secrets and haunting surprises of Phantom Manor. As you meet the 999 happy haunts, keep your wits about you - they say there's room for one more! Before you leave Thunder Mesa on the quest for even wilder frontiers, practice your cowboy competence at the local Rustler Roundup Shootin' Gallery.

Pocahontas Indian Village lets children have some carefree fun in the heart of the forest, whilst the laid-back, friendly atmosphere at The Chaparral Theater and Critter Corral is perfect for anyone who's all gold rush-ed out!

Relive your frontier dreams, discover mysterious secrets and become a part of the epic legends of the wild west, as your dreams turn to gold in Frontierland.

Big Thunder Mountain is the most popular attraction in the park. Head here at opening or just before closing, or grab a Fastpass.

Phantom Manor takes on a new (after) life at night, with the distant howl of coyotes and an awesome eerie ambiance!

Frontierland is one of the best lands to take a break from the action and relax.  Head over to Cottonwood Creek Ranch, Boot Hill or the waterfront of Pocahontas Indian Village for a quiet corner.
