Sorry...but I am full of Armchair Imagineering Ideas....I was told by a CM that works with Disney corporate that there is talk about Rivers of America (ROA) and Fronteir land becoming a little dated. When disneyland was built, the western genre was on everyone's mind...cowboys and indians, etc. Hence Fronteirland and ROA. Well, times have changed, but of course you can't just take that stuff out (and there are no plans to), but what could be done to update it a little bit.
I think with all of the influx of the pirtate craze, they could turn ROA into a priate cove...Like Isla de las Tortugas from the movie...or Port Royale...or something pirate village themed...It would blend in nicely with the rest of fronteirland and NOS...and Tom Sawyers Island could be some pirate something or other (Tom Sawyer is soooooo 100 years ago).
what do you think?
