Making Our Way through Liberty Square and Frontierland at the Magic Kingdom

Welcome back to the Magic Kingdom! On this virtual trip, we’ll be exploring Liberty Square and Frontierland. So, let’s get exploring!

First up is the Haunted Mansion. Can I just say…how cool is the queue line? I love the above video! You can tell it was shot by a total fan of this fun attraction. Unlike Disneyland, there is no Nightmare Before Christmas version at the Magic Kingdom. However, it’s still such a fun attraction that we cannot skip over it. Also, since we explored Fantasyland last time, it’s the first attraction as we head from Fantasyland to Frontierland.

Next up is a journey around Tom Sawyer Island aboard the Liberty Square Riverboat. This is another attraction that gives you the feeling of being at Disneyland, but just slightly different. Tom Sawyer Island at the Magic Kingdom looks different and there is no New Orleans Square that the riverboat goes by on its journey. However, there are elements of this experience that mirror the Mark Twain Riverboat at Disneyland. As you journey around Tom Sawyer’s Island, more differences become pretty clear.

We’ll get to the actual show in the Hall of Presidents next. However, I thought this video needed to be shown because it looks around the lobby at the Hall of Presidents. You should know that the presidential seal in the Hall of Presidents lobby is one of a very few official presidential seals in the country. Since the goal of these virtual tours is to feel like you’re in the theme parks, this video helps accomplish that goal.

Of course, we had to get to the show. Loved this show when I first saw it! Not too long ago, I heard a presentation on this show. The presenter made sure to mention that it’s quite clear which presidents the Imagineers were fond of and which ones they didn’t like by the way the made the audio animatronic of that president. I believe that when Obama was elected president, they altered the show by having him give the oath that the president gives in their inauguration. No matter what your political affiliations are, I’m sure you can enjoy this show.

I came across this video when I was looking for videos of the Diamond Horseshoe. Since we are in the month of Halloween, I thought it would be fun to include it here. Plus, it gives us a chance to visit the Diamond Horseshoe. It doesn’t appear that there are shows there, like there are at the Golden Horseshoe Review at Disneyland.

This seems like a great way to close out our time in Liberty Square. I know the video is a few years old. However, it’s still a fascinating guide to this area of the Magic Kingdom. Hope you all enjoy!

We’re going to skip over Adventureland for now and head back to Frontierland. This video takes us from the Walt Disney World Train Station all the way to Tom Sawyer Island. I like this video because it captures the vibe of a virtual visit perfectly. I know the video is a little shaky, but can’t you just feel like you’re there? Well, maybe not. After all, there is probably no humidity inside (if you’re watching this on your computer at home). So, there are some things you can’t capture virtually.

Frontierland at the Magic Kingdom has 2 mountains. First up is Splash Mountain. I love the Disneyland version of this attraction. It’s so cool to see some of the differences the Magic Kingdom version has. This video is great at capturing the details. Chances are, on this virtual trip, you might catch some details that you wouldn’t normally see when you’re riding.

Okay, you might not have an hour to watch this video. However, if you’re a die-hard Splash Mountain fan, I’m sure you’ll love this video. I haven’t been able to watch then entire video yet. However, what I have seen is fascinating. All I can say to the person who edited this video is…well done! If you want to see the differences and similarities between the Disneyland Splash Mountain and the Magic Kingdom Splash Mountain, take the time to watch. I love it!

The other big mountain of Frontierland is Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. This video is kind of cool because, sometimes it rains at random moments in Walt Disney World. So, we’ve experienced a little rain on our virtual trip as well. No ponchos needed, though, because we’re not out in the elements.

We’ll end this virtual trip with checking out the Country Bear Jamboree. I love this show! Of course, it’s totally sentimental. I loved this show as a child when I would visit Disneyland. Sadly, the Country Bear Jamboree left Disneyland in the 1990’s to make way for the Winnie the Pooh ride. When I saw this show was still playing at the Magic Kingdom on my honeymoon, I had to check it out. You know, for nostalgia’s sake.  I hope you’ve enjoyed this virtual trip and enjoy this show to close things out for this week. We’ve got two more virtual visits to the Magic Kingdom. Next week, we’ll check out Adventureland. Then, in two weeks, we’ll check out Tomorrowland.

      Glad you enjoy them as much as I do putting them together. We all need a virtual vacation from time to time. No worries about the Halos. It’s just a game after all…and one I have no control over.

  3. I have to say in my 40+ times to Walt Disney World I’ve never been out to Tom Sawyer Island.

      You’ve never been to Tom Sawyer Island? Even as a kid? I totally get not going as an adult. However, as a kid, I loved Tom Sawyer Island at Disneyland. After waiting in lines for so much time in the day, it was nice to just run around.
