This first photo is not the most inspiring thing in the world, but I have to admit that the entrance to Frontierland was very pretty back in 1963. Walking over a bridge to enter this land feels like another one of those transition akin to a cinematic dissolve (much like entering the park through the tunnels beneath the railroad tracks). Aunt Patty (on the bridge) senses the change deep down in her lizard brain. She also inexplicably finds herself craving flies.
Davy Crockett loved arcade games, including favorites like Skee Ball and foosball to newer offerings like "Asteroids" and "Space Invaders". He always had a deerskin sack of quarters handy, and would generously share them with Georgie Russell. Walt Disney wanted to pay tribute to this "hard fact" in American history by building the Davy Crockett Frontier Arcade. Bleep bloop!
