Frontierland Medley


Speeding through Frontierland is one of the Stagecoaches that only made it until 1959. Frontierland once had as many modes of transportation (if not more) than Main Street. Slide #1 is undated, but slide #2 is clearly marked June 1960. Guests are listening to the music of the Gonzalez Trio in Frontierland’s version of The Bandstand located in what was known as The Mexican Village.



This January 1968 view is just your basic Wooden Indian at the Frontierland Trading Post photo.



LOVELY framing on this August 1976 shot (I'd like to talk to the photographer of this one! C'mon buddy, who taught you how to take a picture?!?) Another shot of the Mexican Village area with guests listening to live music (no, it’s not the Dapper Dans).

Great thematic grouping. The shot of the Stagecoach is very nice. I think the Wooden Indian was saved and was going to be auctioned off for the 45th Anniversary but never was. I wonder what happened to it?

There's still one there; is it a replacement from the original?

Great shot of the Gonzalez Trio...

Somebody sent me a relatively recent photo of what looked like a storage facility at the back of the park, and there was a wooden indian placed there. Almost as a joke...
