What made the American West so wild? Critters like these rattlesnakes sure did. But the phrase "Wild West" has a more complicated history. Americans have long associated the West with violent "savages," rough-and-tumble mining towns, heavy drinking, gun-slinging outlaw gangs, and cowboys. But historians have shown that this picture is more a romanticized myth than lived reality. For example, these tropes mostly exclude the presence and roles of women in the American West, and they simplify and distort the histories and complexities of the diverse indigenous peoples who lived in the territory beyond the Mississippi River.

Hi there! My name is Sasha, and I would love to be considered for @thegirlandthecastleโ€™s brand rep search. Disney has been a part of my life for a long time. As a kid, I remember clutching my sisterโ€™s hand, running up to Disneylandโ€™s turnstyles, and walking down Main Street, cheeks aching from our big smiles. I moved to Santa Barbara a few years ago to pursue a PhD in US history. My family still manages to keep our annual Disneyland vacation tradition going, and I am proud to say that I successfully converted my husband (we met in the PhD program) into a Disnerd! In December 2017, I launched a project that I think embodies the โ€œYou can find magic anywhereโ€ mission of your brand. Time Traveler (link in bio) shows how the Disney experience draws on and re-creates the past. I publish a new post every two weeks about some aspect of the parks and how it relates to history. I would recommend my post on Tiki bars to start...itโ€™s my favorite! Time Traveler means a lot to me, because I get to share my passion for history with other people who love Disney. While I only get to Disneyland about once per year, I am active every single day on my Instagram account. @princesstimetraveler mixes my Disney photography with Time Traveler updates, fun throwbacks, and tidbits about my personal life and style. I hope you agree that like @thegirlandthecastle, I see, feel, and live the magic of Disney! I truly believe that there's a bubble gum wall wherever you look. #danggoodbrandrep

Happy #throwbackdisney, y'all! Here's little Eden meeting Pluto at Disneyland in 1995. Also in 1995: Toy Story came out, an Apple computer cost more than $2,000, and the state of Mississippi *finally* ratified the Thirteenth Amendment. Tag @princesstimetraveler in your throwbacks (or flashbacks) for a chance to be featured! ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿถ

Howdy, partner! If you were a miner, cowboy, or soldier living in the nineteenth-century American West, you might have stopped into your local saloon to cool off, enjoy a free lunch, play billiards, and gamble with your wages. Bars weren't just sites of leisure and entertainment, though. They offered a place to hold political meetings and exchange information about employment and housing. Barkeeps would even cash paychecks for you! Disneyland's Golden Horseshoe isn't an exact replication of a saloon in the Old West, but it certainly borrows from that legacy. Cheers!

I am not sure that #architecturetuesday is a thing, but we should make it a thing! I love all of the design details at the Disney parks. Who can guess exactly where I snapped this? ๐Ÿ“ธ๐Ÿ“ธ๐Ÿ“ธ

Spotted on Tom Sawyer's island! The EIC, or the East India Company, was an English joint stock company established in 1600 and owned mostly by wealthy merchants and aristocracts. The EIC traded goods from all over the world. By the eighteenth century, the company had also become a part of British empire-building and expansion. The EIC had its own private army and exerted a significant presence in India.

I love history. I always have. It was my favorite class in grade school. I wanted to learn about why people made their choices, pursued their paths, and acted the way that they did. Now, I am getting my PhD in American history. The more that I read about the past, the more I realize that there is so much to discover. That is why I started Time Traveler in December 2017. I grew up going to Disneyland, and as an adult I realized that history is an integral part of the Disney experience. And I am not just talking about Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln. The parks draw on and re-create the past in so many different ways. The food, architecture, themes, people, places, music...they all have a history. I decided to create a website (www.linetimetraveler.com) that helps people explore the wide world of the past while they are in the parks. It would mean a lot to me if you would take a minute, head over to the site, and see what I am up to. Thank you for coming along on this adventure with me!

Happy Saturday, friends! What are you up to? Today, I am writing up a new Time Traveler post on the California Grizzly bear. This critter is featured on the California state flag and on top of Grizzly Peak at California Adventure, but you can't see any of these guys in the wild. They are actually extinct! ๐Ÿป๐Ÿป๐Ÿป UPDATE: the post is available now at www.linetimetraveler.com/californiagrizzlybear

Oh, barnacles! While people experimented with underwater vehicle design as early as the 1500s, submarines as we know them did not become widely used until the early twentieth century. Disneyland's Submarine Voyage ride opened in 1959 and re-opened as the Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage in 2007. ๐ŸŸ๐Ÿณ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿ ๐Ÿก๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฆˆ๐Ÿฆ€๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿฆ
