    Then ask why they were cancelled last year.

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

    :joyfull:

    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.

    I'm all for it. The problem is it eats up expansion dollars on something that falls under maintenance that should have been done years ago. Or would those dollars come out of a different pool?
