PICT5508Did you know… that hen the Frontierland Stockade was being constructed, that Walt actually had some of the most qualified help in getting the job done! Guess who! None other than Davy Crockett himself, Fess Parker! And of course, his trusty companion, Buddy Ebsen!

This stockade has survived fifty years of service, as compared to the actual expected lifetime of a genuine American stockade; which was only intended to be useful for a smaller number of years.

You will want to stop and notice the assorted flags that are posted over the stockade that represent different phases in American history. Betcha never thought you could actually LEARN something about American history in Disneyland!
