On one hand if it had been built I probably never would have been able to have ridden any version of Pirates of the Caribbean as a kid as Pirates was not originally slated for the Florida park until as a replacement for western river expedition.I’d kill to have western river expansion be built. I’ve always loved how well Marc Davis’ concept art translated to animatronics.
On the other hand the Florida Pirates is supposed to be inferior to the California one and western river expedition would have been something equal in quality if not better.
Still, I'm glad I got to ride any version of Pirates because I was more into pirates than cowboys as a kid, but the ideal would have been somehow Magic Kingdom featuring both Pirates and western river expedition, that'd be awesome.
I definitely would love to hop into an alternate dimension to check out western river expedition expedition though, it sounds awesome and what's sad is it was this close to really happening until the oil crisis.
