The DISNEYLAND Stagecoach

The DISNEYLAND Stagecoach was a Frontierland attraction that opened with the park in 1955. Shown here with various Orange County dignitaries, the stagecoach explored the wild frontier. The stagecoach's original path wound around the Rivers of America, roughly where the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad exists today. When "Rainbow Ridge" was built, the stagecoach was routed through the mountain, though it didn't last long. The horses often proved too unpredictable, causing slow loading times and erratic operation. The stagecoach itself still lives on as a prop back in the Big Thunder Ranch and occasionally gets used for special parades on Main Street.
