    Does Westcot count as an unbuilt attraction?

    We got the mine and log flume rides, but I would have been okay with those not existing if we had gotten the expedition ride and a town that actually felt like you were in a Western.

    Not trying to nitpick, but I’m sure you would appreciate the detail of the Stalagtites. I think you mean stalagMites as they are coming up from the ground. ‘Tites hang tight to the ceiling.

    I would've loved Western River Expedition if it was built. Although I wish it was in Frontierland, I wouldnt want it to replace Splash Mountain, Thunder Mountain or Country Bears.

    Thunder Mesa should without a doubt be built without delay. It's a part of our country's history. The "Wild Wild West" will rise again!.....

    At the exit of Big Thunder Mountain across the pathway and a small lagoon. There is a hole in the side of a hill with railroad tracks. Is that part of the original Thunder Mesa?

    Well I know the question but I would gather every book by Jules Verne and make them all into rides

    Not a single mention of Euro Disney's Big Thunder Mountain with its area being called (pretty sure) Thunder Mesa?

    I think it would have been awesome to have the thunder mesa instead, with a different water dark ride. It leaves the opportunity for a different experience, depending on which park you visit. I much prefer the idea of each park having its own theming and unique rides to just simply clones in every park.

    I'm still stuck on the idea that Disney didn't think a pirates ride would be popular in Florida. Florida is incredibly pirate crazy, and has been for as long as I can remember.

    I know it can’t happen but I wish Disney World’s Pirates of the Caribbean was redone so it’s as good or better than the Disneyland one

    I'd rather it was built and forgotten.
