(I’d love to have YOU join me, by sharing THREE THINGS about YOU on your blog! Be sure to link up below!) It’s the first Thursday of the month (seriously, how is it already May?!), and that means it’s time for another Disney-edition of Three Things Thursday. Continuing our trend of a Magic Kingdom tour, this week I’m focusing on:
#1 – Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
To me, this ride IS Frontierland. When I think of Frontierland, it’s the first thing that comes to mind. I still remember our first visit to Walt Disney World in 1988. My Dad actually videotaped the entire ride. (I wonder where that video is now?) It’s one of my earliest memories of the Magic Kingdom, and therefore it’s #1 on today’s list. It was exciting for me to introduce this ride to my own family. What sets this coaster apart from most others is that it has a backstory, complete with realistic props. You feel like you really are riding a train through a mountain! (Please note: if you’re planning a trip to Disney in the near future and would like to ride Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, you’ll probably want to get a FastPass. Guests must be at least 40″ tall to ride.)
#2 – Country Bear Jamboree
OK, OK . . . I know you’re all looking at my blog and thinking, “Is she serious?!” But, I can’t help it. As corny as it is, I feel a sense of nostalgia about this show. I still remember watching it for the first time (I believe there’s video of it as well.) My family groans and complains nowadays when I ask if we can watch it, so we rarely do; but, in the event that they give in, I’m suddenly transported back to that first visit to the Magic Kingdom – and, back then, the Country Bears were a pretty impressive bunch! I was thrilled to see them out meeting and greeting guests during the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party this past December. Now, while you might expect me to mention Splash Mountain or Tom Sawyer Island as my third favorite, I’m going to go with
#3 – Pecos Bill Cafe
Several years ago, my family discovered this quick service dining option and it’s been a favorite ever since. I love the toppings bar the best! We are a family of varied tastes, so it’s nice to have the option of topping your burger (or taco salad) with your own personal favorites. The burgers here are big enough to split!
What are your Frontierland favorites?
