    WDW never had plans to build MTTNW because they were supposed to get the WRE of course.

    I have the full ride through soundtrack of this on my in my iTunes and on my iPod.

    Right--the WRE woulda incorporated some elements even...

    Keeline is a great site but doesn't seem to have that interview any longer

    When Disneyland opened, it catered to the main interests of kids at that time... for boys that was Cowboys/Indians Old West stuff, and Space... as NASA was grabbing headlines and the space race was heating up. Into the 60's that Cowboys/Indians thing lingered for a while... but Hopalong Cassidy, The Lone Ranger, Tom Mix, Roy Rogers, etc. were either gone or on the way out. Disney itself was a main source of "Old West" production with it's popular Daniel Boone series, and of course Bonanza and Wild Wild West and Gunsmoke were in production, but by the mid-70's interest had fallen off to the point the only westerns on TV were re-runs. Today, you hardly even see those. When was the last time you saw kids dressed up like Cowboys, running around with cap pistols? The whole Tom Sawyer/Daniel Boone thing Disney started with Frontierland and the island hasn't been popular with young kids for at least a quarter century now. It's fun to travel back to those simpler times via Disney, but they have to focus on new generations too. I can see Frontierland being phased out entirely at some point, but I sure hope it's not replaced with HipHopLand or Gangstaland or something like that... :/

    Half of that is no big deal. The horses leave presents on Main Street even now. The mules were awesome. They should bring 'em on back.

    well, according to Lutz's article, there might be a new mine train ride going over in DCA in Golden State.

    I've never ridden Mine Train Through Nature's Wonderland because it was long gone by the time I was born. But the mine ride at Knott's is a favorite of mine, even though the AAs are horrible and the sound system is awful. Disney's was 100x better I'm sure, and I'd like to see another incarnation.
