May 22, 2013 - The Lucky Nugget And Legends Of The Wild West

After lunch, we actually had a little more free time!  Now, don't get me wrong.  It's not that I didn't enjoy spending time with the other Disney Dreamers.  It's quite the opposite.  We are like a family and I love each and every one of them!  I'll write more about our fantastic group together.

That said, I did look forward to free time because everybody has different tastes.  I would much rather look at the details of the park than ride an attraction.  So, we'd took this time to admire many of the details or off the beaten path kind of attractions.

So, after lunch, we walked into The Lucky Nugget, which is Disneyland Paris's version of the Golden Horseshoe, just to see it...

The restaurant looks very much like Disneyland's Golden Horseshoe, except the woodwork is dark and is absolutely beautiful.  There is an ornateness to the design that feels undeniably European, yet, at the same time, feels authentically old west.  My favorite thing was the mural of Frontierland on the curtain of the stage.

From The Lucky Nugget, we walked over to Fort Comstock, which makes up the front gate of Frontierland, similar to the way Disneyland in California has a fort as its entrance.

Unlike Disneyland, Disneyland Paris's Fort Comstock is one in which you can climb and walk around.  Again, this is another wonderful thing that adds texture and detail to the park.  It actually contains an attraction called "Legends of the Wild West," a walk through that shows the daily life in the old west.

You can even see some Native American teepees settled outside Fort Comstock...

And, looking over on the Frontierland side, you get a wonderful view of Thunder Mesa...

I'm so glad we got to walk through Fort Comstock.  It's one of those places that you might just miss if you're not paying attention.  There's so much to explore up there for both young and old.  I absolutely loved it!


  1. The Lucky Nugget is one of my favourite buildings in the whole park. The interior is so gorgeous - I'm so happy I finally managed to whisk you in there, albeit briefly!

  2. Yeah, it was definitely a lovely building. Glad I got to go in there as well!
