I know it’s one of my favorite rides, and the recent refurbishment I thought gave it a fresh new twist at the end (which I loved). But, did you know that Big Thunder shares a few cool things right near by that some people don’t even know about?

UPDATE (1-19-2016): Well, it was fun while it lasted. A lot of this post is outdated now due to Disney’s construction for Star Wars Land. A lot of Big Thunder Ranch has been removed to make room.
