Frontierland or Rainbow Ridge – Have you chosen your alliance in Frontierland at Disneyland park? “Legends of Frontierland: Gold Rush!” lets you become part of a Wild West story – and you know there’s food involved.
With stations throughout Frontierland like the Sheriff’s Office and Jail, the Hideout, the Trading Post, a Telegraph Station and a game of cards and more inside Golden Horseshoe, you can create a character (are you a peacekeeper or an outlaw?) and interact with cast members in really fun ways. (See Erin Glover’s earlier post on the Disney Park Blog.)
All that running about works up a thirst, and L.B.’s Extraordinary Elixirs includes three soft drinks worth a sip: Knowledge, a tea infused with lime, passion fruit, vanilla and a “zap of pureed ginger – for smarts”; Luck, a tea infused with apple, cotton candy, lime, lemongrass and mint, all stirred with a lucky horseshoe; and Charm, lite lemonade infused with desert pear, blackberry and “Tabasco for personality plus.” We’ve heard that they each grant mystical power to citizens of Frontierland and Rainbow Ridge.
Over at the Golden Horseshoe, there’s a new “secret” menu (wink, wink) and they’ve doctored up the root beer in three flavors – one with wild raspberry (Wild style), one with toasted marshmallow flavor (Campfire style), one with vanilla (Plain Jane) and one with caramel (Eureka style). And if you really want to live life on the edge, go with “Outlaw Style” toppings for chili fries, the chili bread bowl or the crispy chicken salad – that means you add a mixture of black beans, roasted white corn, red onion, serrano chiles, tomato, green, red and yellow peppers, garlic, cilantro, Tabasco, olive oil and lime. (It’s worth a taste.)
That’s plenty of Wild West grub to keep you fired up for all the Frontierland fun!
