With all the new info (thanks again to Master Gracey and his CM source for the scoop ) and rumors circulating about the new look for "Tom Sawyer Island", people are getting caught up in the excitement of something new, but is it a good idea?
Do the New Orleans Square Pirates have any business in the American Frontier of the mid- to late-1800's? Historically they don't, but what about aesthetically? Are you in favor of this transformation? Or are you appalled by the "prostitution" of a literary (and Disneyland) classic?
Will this "refurb" usher in a new renaissance for the "Island", or will it be the funeral of ol' Huck and Tom (and Becky, Injun Joe, etc.)? Or both? Or neither?
I believe the press releases for this project are purposely downplaying the role of "Pirates" on "Tom Sawyer" Island, and what we will be left with when the dust settles is a "Pirate's Lair" Island, and yet again, Frontierland will have one less attraction.
Will Huck and Tom be the new "Redheads"? Is this "A Portrait Of Things To Come"?:
