Create an itinerary including Big Thunder Ranch
Big Thunder Ranch was an attraction at Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California, United States. It included an outdoor petting zoo, a walk-through log cabin, and a variety of scenery meant to create the atmosphere of a Western ranch. It was located in Frontierland, nearby Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. Inside one could find sheep, goats, cows, and other farm animals. Among these animals were the two turkeys who received presidential pardons in honor of Thanksgiving in 2008. The attraction was hosted by Brawny.

Big Thunder Ranch closed permanently on January 11, 2016, as the attraction (and some nearby backstage areas) became the site of the 14-acre (5.7 ha) land, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.

  • They are building Star Wars Land so there is no more Big Thunder Ranch. The cut through from Fantasy Land to Big Thunder Mt is also closed. You have to walk around the front.

  • The Big Thunder Ranch was a new thing when I was in High School back in the Early 1980's! The Thunder Moutain Roleer Coaster was an awesome edition.
