    Re: Pictures from Frontierland, late 60's, early 70's

    Yah Frontierland has shrunk A LOT since the park opened. I've seen pictures where there were gun slingers walking around, zorro riding through it on horseback, and a bunch of other stuff. Now it's just plain empty except for the Mark Twain, Columbia, and Big Thunder.
    Growing older is manditory
    Growing up is however, optional

    And it's hard to say that any other attraction crowded Frontierland out ... it just seemed that before Big Thunder, the land had a bigger footprint, and more "open space" for the stagecoach, mule rides, and mine train, most of which (I think) was taken up by the Big Thunder Ranch, Big Thunder Trail, the pond, and the Railroad attraction/coaster.

    Yipee! Another picture, even closer, of the Chicken Plantation House. Thanks.

    I used to love to eat lunch at the Fritos place. I was so disappointed when they changed that.
