Goodbye to Disneyland's Rivers of America

The team at MiceAge / Mice Chat crew of Dateline Disneyland led by Andy Castro has posted an absolutely right on assessment of what exactly will be lost when Disney reroutes the flow of the Rivers of America to make way for Star Wars Land. It's a deeply moving, insightful, and eloquent look at why this move may be profitable short term but why it's also full of holes, destroying intangibles so important in defining Walt Disney's Magic Kingdom. Trading profit now for bigger losses long term. Take a look and think about it all again. Includes a historic look backward at the river tour. Find it here.
