Around Thunder Mesa

Most of my Disneyland Paris Frontierland photos are focused on the hauntingly magnificent Phantom Manor and the mightily thrilling Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.  But the actual land itself is pretty photogenic too, and it comes with its own backstory.  Here, Frontierland is Thunder Mesa, a mining town that looks nostalgic and charming but is also under the shadow of Henry Ravenswood, the menacing and malevolent developer who took residence in Phantom Manor and controlled the mines at Big Thunder Mountain.  Most of the sinister and supernatural actions center around the two marquee icons of the area, and for the most part, the rest of town looks like a cheerful and scenic place to visit.  Just know that the aura of the Phantom still pervades, no matter how sunny things might look!
