Martin may I ask where exactly the expansion pads for FL are located?Yes, there have been proposals to dock the boat and turn it into a TSR
Yes, there have been proposals to bridge the river and build an attraction on the island
Yes, there are proposals to build a connector around the river
Be careful what you wish for. Frontierland has acres of expansion area west of the railroad. The island and river, although heavily reduced over the years, still offer thematic placement, immersion, kinetics and an escape to somewhere unique in the park. To reduce it further would be one step too far.
I believe you have described how many feel about Disney. Without TSI I would have some very disappointed grandkids. They enjoy the adventure.I like TSI just the way it is, and enjoy this classic attraction. What makes WDW special is a balance of experiences throughout the parks. Old or new, thrill rides or leisurely entertainment options—all can coexist in harmony.
Remember the Empress Lilly (now the Paddlefish) at what is now Disney Springs?If there was only an existing steamboat dining establishment on property...
It now looks like a 2000's era modernized re-imagining of a late 1900's Steamboat. This vs the previous romanticized design of an 1800's Showboat of yesteryear.Remember the Empress Lilly (now the Paddlefish) at what is now Disney Springs?
Not really a steamboat but it sure looked like one. I have not been at Disney Springs since the Paddlefish opened so I don't know what it looks like now.
