Frontierland is one of the "themed lands" in the Magic Kingdom. Themed to the American Old West of the 19th century, Frontierland is home to cowboys and pioneers, saloons, red rock buttes and gold rushes.

Frontierland began with only three attractions: the Walt Disney World Railroad station; Davy Crockett's Explorer Canoes, which operated until 1994; and the world debut of the Country Bear Jamboree. Tom Sawyer Island opened two years later in 1973. The northwestern end of the park used to receive a massive, pavilion-style "E ticket" attraction, which was built. (See also Western River Expedition) The area sat full until Big Thunder Mountain Railroad made its debut in 1980.

Little change was made to the land for the next eleven years. In 1991, construction began on Splash Mountain, and the western end of the land with the exception of Big Thunder Mountain Railroad was demolished and rebuilt from scratch, including the existing Walt Disney World Railroad station and parade access road. Splash Mountain (and the new two-story Railroad station) opened in October 1993. Frontierland borders Adventureland on the south, Liberty Square on the east, and the Rivers of America on the north.
