    Lovely new detail [Themed Frontierland Poster Board]

    I don't know if anyone has spotted this, but it is a new themed poster board in Frontierland. I wanted to point it out because I love these little new details that only add to the theming of the park. It shouldn't go unnoticed.

    Talk about applying a band-aid to a compound fracture. If you want to "add" to the theming of this so-called Frontierland, how's about removing the Pirates from the heart of the place on TSI?

    I don't understand why Disney hasn't just let the new pirate island become its own new land and then fix Frontierland by adding new attractions to the festival area. Frontierland would have the Mark Twain on the water, and Pirate's would have Columbia.

    Of course... the park installs something new, and someone here has to slam it.

    Surprise, surprise.

    Interesting.............. but it looks like it's in NOS, not Frontierland.

    Maybe they'll reintroduce the bands that used to play on the Mark Twain and the show schedules will be posted there.

    I see and even mostly agree with your point...but a band-aid for a compound fracture? That's an over-exaggeration. This particular band-aid may not "fix" the problem of TSI, but it's far from worthless!

    Would anybody have any guesses as to why the flyer is the for the "Diamon Jo Lines"? All I can find is that Diamond Jo is a riverboat casino in Iowa

    But who said there was anything wrong with TSI? People on this board think that just because a certain group of Disney lovers don't like something that has changed in the park, that its not worth the Disney quality. I personally love the new Island, it has allot more to do, and its something allot of people can relate to since Pirates are popular now, and Tom Saywer was a couple years back (still popular for many people though.) The new sign adds something, and I like it. Another little detail.

    Steve said there was. I don't entirely agree with him. I've yet to experience the new island in person, though I'm sure I'll enjoy it when I get the chance. The main problem Steve was talking about (I hope) was the thematic issue of the pirate theme spreading throughout NOS and into Frontierland, too. Pirates have a fairly tenuous thematic link to NOS, and there really is none whatsoever to Frontierland, and TSI is "broadcast" to both lands. However fun the island is, the pirate theme doesn't really fit with its surroundings. It's not a question of TSI being "Disney quality"--it's just a matter of it fitting or not fitting. Not something I'm particularly torn up over, though, don't worry.
