    I have to add one thing however. Although FL IMHO doesn't need an expansion, I want a plussing of BTMR, the explosion effects in the DLR version in the mine during the last climb are amazing! (saw it on the TimTracker channel on Youtube) I want that in WDW too!

    And I definitely understand why! When I realized that I would see a "Nightmare before Christmas"-HM and a "Jingle Cruise" (absolute ridiculous idea BTW) if I go to DL before christmas, I decided to avoid that time of the year at all costs if I finally visit DL one day. And I can't even remotely describe my disappointment when I am in DL and instead of Hyperspace Mountain I get "Ghost Galaxy"-Stuff. So visiting DL during Halloween season is impossible as well.

    Then ask why they were cancelled last year.

    Any chance it ends up being implemented for the 50th?

    AFAIK, it's being considered.

    That doesn't surprise me. Guess they decided to do it then so they can push it as an enhancement for the 50th

    So why was it canceled? I'm sure it's an amusing reason.

    Also, is the water feature in the cave at the beginning not working or has there never been one? At WDW that is. It seems it has worked in years past.

    Well, sounds like it was cancelled simply because they could do it later and tout it as something new for the 50th.

    So trying to get back on topic around Frontierland... Do we know anything further? I was under the impression that 300million was allocated to MK? Is that still the story?

    I believe so. Not including the majority of the Tland work aside from SGE.

    That's a lot of money. Have they ever considered, I don't know, building an original ride or two, instead of gutting and replacing stuff in a park that's busting at the seams every time I'm there?

    If I recapture the present situation in FL, I come to the conclusion that some plussing is necessary but an entire expansion would be overkill as long as they did not expand AL and redo TL.

    BTMR - Add the effects from DL and it is perfect.
    SM- Everything OK.
    CBJ - I hate them but they are a classic and I know that they still attract many Americans.
    Frontierland Shooting Arcade - Nice little classic, we were invited several times by CM to shoot for free,
    TSI- Definitely needs a plussing or redo but I still enjoy the caves and it is still a retreat on very crowded days.
    Diamond Horseshoe - Don't know anything about it.

    I wouldn't call the addition of another attraction an "expansion" but if they add one more attraction in the next years that would be nice though not exactly necessary.
    GIVE ME FIRE MOUNTAIN INSTEAD!;)

    Fire Mountain would be great, but SM needs to be gutted and rebuilt. Not re-rethemed, just rebuild the existing track with actual smooth steel.
