Frontierland Overhaul/New Attraction






    Rumors have existed surrounding an overhaul to Frontierland that would potentially include a major new attraction. The rumor first surfaced in 2012 and resurfaced in 2015.

    The information from 2015 points to a major “water based E-ticket attraction” and potential changes to Tom Sawyer’s Island.

    At this point in time we are considering this rumor dead.
