8 Secrets People Don't Know About Liberty Square in Magic Kingdom

6. Time and Place

Take notice of the timeline progression as you venture through Liberty Square, as well as the shift of scenery denoting changes in geography. The changes in architectural style previously mentioned actually start where Fantasyland ends, making the transition from English to early American. You’ll notice certain areas in Liberty Square not only reflect specific time periods but also geographic reference points. You already know that the central surroundings denote old Pennsylvania, but if you head to the popular Haunted Mansion attraction you’ll find yourself in the Hudson River Valley. Tom Sawyer’s Island is representative of the Mississippi, of course. Enter the Country Bear Jamboree’s Grizzly Hall and you will have entered 1840s Colorado. Explore the West Coast starting with the end line of the train station where Splash Mountain can be found right at the start of Frontierland.

There’s also the Diamond Horseshoe at the gateway to the west—a representation of St. Louis Arch.
