|Big Thunder Mountain - Panorama|
Today marks the 34th anniversary of the first ride on Big Thunder Mountain at the Magic Kingdom. Although the official opening wouldn't take place until November, this iconic attraction "soft opened" on September 23rd, 1980. This is certainly one of my family's all-time favorite rides, and we continue to enjoy it on a regular basis. I took this panorama from the Liberty Belle Riverboat as I cruised up the Rivers of America.
