    Re: The Frontierland that never was

    Yeah lots of discussion about this. I would have liked to see WRE...but I think the whole thing by now wouldn't have been so hot...because lets face it...we'd have lost the pack mules...the lawyers would have closed the trails at the top...we'd have BTM and instead of Splash we'd have a Cowboy version of Pirates. But I'd have liked that Cowboy version of Pirates.

    I like this sentence, regarding Walt Disney Production's decision not to include a POTC ride:

    The prevailing sentiment was that southeastern U.S. audiences would be better entertained by a taste of something less familiar and more removed from their geographic region's past.

    Maybe the creators of DCA should've thought of that!

    I've read that article many times. I wish they would have built it. I think they still should if they had any brains. I think it would be a hit.

    Except that they no longer have the genius of Marc Davis to design it for them. It breaks my heart that WORLD OF MOTION is gone.

    Re: The Frontierland that never was

    I would love for WRE to be built but I know it isn't going to happen. The ride is missing one key thing: Pixar characters! Although, in all honesty, where could it go now? Frontierland's real estate is pretty much used up! I'm happy though with what we have, splash and thunder. I think splash is about as close as we're ever going to get to WRE. But you never know....... </IMG></IMG>

    There may be a way to place it up on the northern end of the Rivers of America. Place the queue somewhere on the south side and boat people up to the real attraction.

    No Problem. I thought it was interesting about the whole Thunder Mesa thing. Maybe WDW would have had something like Phantom Manor if the idea went through.

    Doubtful. Haunted Mansion was built with the park.

    I would have loved to see WRE built. It's too bad that they haven't ressurected the idea for subsequent Disney parks.
    Woof!

    Re: The Frontierland that never was

    Does anyone have a diagram that shows the layout of the park and where on the boundries the park could grow. Obvioulsy there is land back there, but I know a lot of it has well established buildings on it that are needed. So where can MK be expanded?
