about

Opened in the middle of America's fascination with all things western, Disneyland's Frontierland's attractions included everything from coonskin caps to fake gunfights in the "streets." As the space age dawned, however, Frontierland became less popular. Jim talks about the ideas Disney proposed to bring back the crowds, including everything from a "Top of the World" lounge to how Big Thunder Mountain got built, and what kind of expectations Disney has for the upcoming "Oz The Great and Powerful" film.Recorded live at Disneyland. Presented by AAA.
