    something tells me little boys are just not influenced by Tom Sawyer as they once were...

    and not for nothing but between Splash Mountain with song of the south and Tom Sawyer and the link to Huck Finn... doesnt anyone at all think MK is being a bit ignorant...? dont get me wrong... love SM... but just a thought...

    i know... im probably being too politically correct here... just another argument for arguments sake....

    After The Jungle Cruise lost it's right to "bear arms" and the Pirates lost their rights to chase women, I think The MK is PC enough, thank you XD

    No, they should keep the riverboats and the river even if nobody is rushing to ride it. It's part of the look of Frontierland and it's a great way to relax when your tired, but not tired enough to go back to the hotel.

    realize what your saying here... even if no one is rushing to ride it... im not sure Disney or any theme park is in the business of building attractions that people will just look at and not ride... and they will be able to keep the look of Frontierland even it is without a river and a riverboat in the background...

    I see your point, but they're not building the riverboats, just keeping them active. The park would be out of balance "land to water" wise if they got rid of the river. The moat around the castle would be it, and you can't really see it. I don't know if it's worth ruining the aesthetic of Frontierland just to add a few more rides when there is sooooo much land left to build on in WDW.

    Anyway, that's just my 2 cents.

    i understand where you are coming from but they maybe able to build a rather large bridge over to Tom Sawyer Island, and that would allow them to take full advantage of all that land in the background...

    Now that I can get behind. Keep the river build a bridge (nice idea) and maybe park the boats. Make it so!
