Walt Disney World
Magic Kingdom: Frontierland
With its focus on what may have been the most romantic period of America's history, Frontierland is considered by most guests to be the most memorable part of the Magic Kingdom. This is the only place in the world where you can see a wild-west town that has Detective Tom Sawyer as sheriff, a saloon filled with badly dressed talking bears, and the occasional gun fight between a rabbit and a fox that have apostrophes in their names.Splash Mountain
Built with hollowed-out logs and recycled animatronics from the defunct Hall of Supreme Court Justices, Splash Mountain is a Magic Kingdom favorite despite its corner-cutting design. Splash Mountain is filled with water (instead of more expensive roller-coaster track) on which guests float through scenes from Song of the South, including Bre'r Rabbit's plunge into the briar patch, Bre'r Bear accidentally hitting Bre'r Fox with a shovel, and protests over the "tar baby" scene.
Trivia: In 1985, Splash Mountain's water was replaced with Coca-Cola to create "the New Splash" as a marketing ploy, but massive consumer repulsion led to a quick reinstatement of H2O.
Big Thunder Mountain
Tom Sawyer Island
Country Bear Jamboree
Trivia: This ursine attraction was moved to the Magic Kingdom from Disneyland because it was thought that the increased humidity might help Big Al's lumbago.
