We recently took a tour aboard the unsinkable Molly Brown (eh eh) around the Rivers of the Far West at Disneyland Paris, taking in the sights and sounds of Frontierland. From Big Thunder Mountain, to Phantom Manor and Boot Hill, the scale of Disneyland Paris’ Frontierland is certainly formidable.
Join us now on a photo tour of Thunder Mesa and the Rivers of the Far West:
Frontierland seen from the bridge of Legends of the Old West.
Big Thunder Mountain in all its glory.
Thunder Mesa Riverboat Landing, with construction at the Silver Spur Steakhouse in the background.
The Steakhouse is still operating during its exterior refurbishment.
Frontierland seen from the Molly Brown.
It really is a beautiful area of the Park.
Big Thunder Mountain’s exit runs parallel to the River.
Some nice Western theming along the River Bank.
All of this cargo will look mighty inviting to the River Pirates.
Smuggler’s Cove, home of the River Pirates.
Looks abandoned to us…
One of those authentic, Old West Evian bottles floating in the river.
The abanoned River Rogue Keelboats loading dock.
Pocahantas Indian Village is deserted too…
Big Thunder Island.
Is that a Castle we can see on the far left?
Pocahantas’ Indian Village is closed throughout the Winter it seems.
An authentic Western dock?
A small fishing harbour. Note the Mark Twain Riverboat in the background under protective tarps.
Whilst ‘animatronic’ would be a charitable name for this figure, he does move at least.
Ah… Phantom Manor.
The Mansion is certainly an imposing sight over the River.
Pretty, in a creepy kind of way.
So that concludes our tour of the Rivers of the Far West at Disneyland Paris! It’s great to see the Molly Brown back in service. Let us know what you think in the comments.
