    Re: The Burning Cabin

    If you own "A Day At Disneyland" It shows the burning cabin and you hear the captain say. "It looks like he's having a house warming party"

    Also, When was that cabin introduced?

        I'm not sure of the start date of the burning cabin, but on a 1957 record of Jiminy Cricket's "A Day At Disneyland", he describes the 'burning cabin' with an un "PC"..."those wicked indians must have done it." Then they had a drunk owner passed out over a log (minus indian arrow in his back). Now there is nothing and no 'burning' cabin.

              Re: The Burning Cabin

              Settlers who lived in log cabins never were killed by arrows in the Old West. :thumbdown

              I'm wondering if the mentality behind doing away with the arrow-in-the-back dead settler outside the burning cabin isn't so much about lame corporate kowtowing to "being PC" and "not wanting to offend any Native Americans" as it is about not being able (or willing) to provide any kind of counterbalance to the historical reality of the Old West, such as showing unarmed Native men, women, and children being mowed down and shot in the back by soldiers and being deliberately trampled by horses and such (as happened during the Sand Creek Massacre or at Wounded Knee). It's kind of like how there's no Vietnam War-themed land in any amusement park anywhere.

              Walt Disney did state on Opening Day in 1955 that Disneyland was "dedicated to the ideals, the dreams, and the hard facts that have created America..." One of those hard facts is that a LOT of killing took place in the creation of America, both by European settlers and by Native American peoples.

              I'm fine with changing or removing racially and culturally inflammatory rhetoric like "wicked Indians," but we cannot mend political and intercultural fences by whitewashing history and pretending that bad things didn't happen when the historical record tells us otherwise. In retelling history, even in an entertainment venue, the truth is of primary importance, particularly in relating history to future generations.

                  ^^You bring up very good points, especially about the idea of offering a counterbalance. Therefore, I think the only option is to have the drunk settler be the culprit. It would be an effective way to send an anti-drinking message to the kids! "Don't drink or you'll burn the house down."

                  The only other option is to depict the Trail of Tears across the river. I like the former over the latter.

                    There have been several discussions like this about the burning cabin. Here's one of the better threads:

                      Re: The Burning Cabin

                      I believe it was officially called the "Settler's Cabin" or "Settler's Cabin Afire" and "Burning Settler's Cabin."



                      Note the guy laying down dead with an arrow in his chest. The Keel Boat skippers (Jungle Cruise on the Rivers of America) always joked he was "wearing an Arrow shirt."

                      Another one was about the "Injuns throwing a little housewarming party" for him.

                        Promotional film made by Disneyland that gives a little over of a day at disneyland. It was sold from about 1994-2001.

                          I remember the burning cabin as a kid. Does the one at WDW still blaze? I was there a year ago and can't remember.

                            I don't care if they say "Wicked Micechatters set it ablaze", just as long as they fully restore that whole section of the park. Poor cascade peak, poor Fort Wilderness, Poor Indian Attackers, Poor Burning Cabin. They all need to return.

                              There was a period of time between the "Indian attack" and the current no fire/no explanation when they would say that the settler's "still was running mighty hot" as the reason for the fire.

                                Righto. That was the "Politically Corrected" version. It was his moonshine still that blew up and caught the place on fire...not those nasty redskins. They added steam coming out of the house at that time too.

                                Intially...it was the Energy Crisis of the time that got the fire turned off (not Politically Correct to be burning gas like that when there was an Energy Crisis like that going on...though it could also have actually been a related law that prohibited such decorative open flames at the time. Seem to recall a bit of that as well).

                                Then they added an eagle with some chicks in a nest, and there was some story about that. But I don't recall what it was.

                                  WDW's was still ablaze last summer, so I assume it was still on throughout 2006. Their's can be seen from the Liberty Belle and from the top of one of Big Thunder Mountain's lift hills. No Explorer Canoes or Keel Boats in Florida.

                                      At one point they were going to change the Burning cabin into Johnny Appleseed's cabin with apple trees blossoming around and have Johnny sitting under a tree. Never happened unfortunately.

                                        Oh yeah, planting apple trees is a hard fact that made America. Still, it's slightly better than what it will probably become. Woody's Lincoln Log Cabin. Because even though Toy Story wasn't about the American Frontier, or even life-sized toys, that won't stop Disney from dumping such things all over the parks.
