Disneyland Paris' Lucky Nugget

The spiritual successor to Disneyland's iconic Golden Horseshoe is not surprisingly found in Walt Disney World's at the Magic Kingdom straddling Frontierland and Liberty Square, where earliest guidebooks list it in the same land as The Hall of Presidents and The Haunted Mansion. In Japan, Tokyo Disneyland's Diamond Horseshoe fits perfectly in the frontier's renamed Westernland. But there's a French cousin as well!

The real food star restaurant of the area, however, belongs to the Silver Spur Steakhouse. It's quite expensive, and walking in the door alone seems to cost a fistful of dollars (Euros). But oh the smell of that sizzling meat! Heavenly! And the place is hard to book as well. At least it was once upon a time.

Back in better days on any of the three continents, the Revue was worth the wait! Can-can Girls, a great piano player, and a funny man made an afternoon away from the rides worth the time. Now, it's just a beautiful building of a by-gone era.
