Where to Start


We started at the Trading Post (Which actually isn’t in the Trading Post store. Listen to the podcast episode find out where it is), but initially only Frontierlanders were to start there. Raindow Ridgers were supposed to start at the Hideout (What’s at the Hideout? Listen to the podcast episode and find out).

Here are the Main locations (On the Map);
Trading Post
Golden Horseshoe (Inside and out front, too)
Telegraph Station
Sheriff Office/Jail
The Hideout

Locations not on the Map;
Shooting Gallery
Big Thunder Petting Zoo

We give you a tip so you can use your name tag over and over again.

Disney Once Again notes:

So many Classic songs and music.

“When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you

If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do”

Wishes give an ordinary person the opportunity to be special. A wish can make everyone special.

Another beginning with a book. It begins with “Once night a long time ago…”

The “fly down” to Geppetto’s window was dark and murky, but there was another fly down coming.

Geppetto treated Pinocchio like his son. Geppetto also cared for all of his creations like his children, too. Geppetto’s “world” was created from wood, gears, etc.

The water effect (Even seeing Pinocchio walking through Cleo’s fishbowl) was incredible.


The clocks shows violence, drunkeness, spanking, etc.

Figaro was jealous of Pinocchio, like Tinkerbell was of Wendy.

Geppetto was smoking in bed.

Geppetto’s Wish was that Pinocchio to be a real boy. Jiminy initially had not faith/belief in Geppetto’s wish “What a lovely thought, but not practical”.

When Jiminy screamed for everything to be quite, he stopped all the clocks. No one will wake up on time.

The Blue Fairy (partially granted) Wish #1 – She gave Pinocchio life, but didn’t make him a real boy, yet.

The Blue Fairy told Pinocchio to be “Brave, Truthful and Unselfish”

I want to thank Todd and Kristen from the Walt Sent Me Podcast for their thoughts on Pinocchio. Please check out their podcast

OUAT Themes and Meanings – 10. Anyone Can Change Their Life

emma birthday

Emma gives Cinderella an inspiring speech in “The Price of Gold” about taking your life into your own hands, and showing the world what you are capable of. In “The Outsider”, Belle sought adventure and a new life and decided to make it happen. We each have the power to create our own destiny and change our life, and if we don’t like where our life is headed, it’s up to us to put ourselves on a new road.

OUAT Themes and Meanings – 9. Everyone has their own story


We may think we know everything about someone, but everyone has their own tale – a life full of joy, pain, and tragedy. We learned that there is so much to more to Regina than being the Evil Queen, and that Rumple was an ordinary man before he became the Dark One. Even Emma had the idea that her mother had always lived the perfect life of a princess. Just as our beloved characters, everyone has their own complex and complicated story, and in life it’s always important to remember that.
