BootHill

Boot Hill is a small local cemetery located adjacent to Phantom Manor in Disneyland Paris. It is the final resting place for the Ravenswood family, as well as many of the residents of Thunder Mesa.

Details

Guests exploring Boot Hill can find the graves of Henry and Martha Ravenswood, as well as a nameless black sarcophagus that seems to vibrate with the pulse of as beating heart (possibly the grave of their daughter Melanie Ravenswood). Other tombstones contain humorous epitaphs and other sight gags for macabre comedy. The eerie atmosphere is occasionally punctuated by the barking and howling of unseen coyotes. The Disney Imagineers behind Phantom Manor stated that the majority of the tombstones have legitimate backstories behind them which they created in an attempt to expand the world of Thunder Mesa. The term "Boot Hill" was a common term for cemeteries in the American Old-West with the implications being that it was for "those who died with their boots on", alluding to gunfighters who would kill and be killed. The director and undertaker of the burial grounds is J. Nutterville.
