    In what land?

    Lately, I have been looking at My Disneyland map, Disneyland pictures, , and you know that kind of stuff. As I was looking at pictures of Tom Sawyer Island, I wondered, " In what land does Tom Sawyer Island pertain too? ". I understand you need to go to New Orleans Square to get on the raft, to get there. But, What land does it pertain too? I always thought it was Frontierland, But I was never sure since you can see it from Frontierland, New Orleans Square, and Critter Country.

    also an important question to be asked when it comes to planning the new pirates/tsi thing..
    but it seems to me that they should just rename it "Pirates Island... and some other stuff that doesn't really fit into the theme".

    The waterfront is all Frontierland.

    Also on a sort of related note, Davy Crocett Canoes' loading is in Crittery Country, not Frontierland.

    Correct. Same back when Critter Country was named "Bear Country."



    But of course going way back even before Bear Country...the canoes (pre-politically correct named "Indian War Canoes") were part of Frontierland.

    It's all Frontierland.

    Theme Park Operations should stop differentiating between these smaller areas and Frontierland.

    The intention clearly was for New Orleans Square and Critter Country, or, before it, Bear Country, to merely expand Frontierland.

    I'm okay with it.

    Reasons why:

    -Splash Mountain takes place in stories that were told in the old south. Not the old west.

    -Winnie the Pooh and the hundred acre wood is not Frontierland either.

    -Pirates of the Caribbean is not Frontier.

    -Haunted Mansion could be Frontierland if the architecture was different... it could be a ghost town ride instead. But it's not.

    -All of New Orleans Square isn't "frontier" either.

    -etc etc

    Re: In what land?

    TSI is definately Frontierland. Remember, when Disneyland was built, there was no NOS nor Critter Country/Bear Country. That area of the park was ALL Frontierland.

    While NOS is often considered its own "land" it can also be accepted as an extension of Frontierland. While the pioneers and cowboys were out west prospectin' and explorin', more genteel folk lived in cities like New Orleans.

    Splash Mountain and Critter country might represent what was going on in the Old South during the same era.

    Pooh belongs in Fantasyland.

    Hafta disagree on this one. While Critter Country is kind of a catch-all now, NOS is most definitely not part of Frontierland. If it could be considered an expansion of anything, it would seem more related to Adventureland, but I don't buy that, either. It's small, but very definitely its own land.

    Why can't we all just say it's 'unincorporated land' and run by Frontierland.?????
