Western River Expedition Virtual Ridethrough

At D23 this year(2011) there was a presentation giving details of the Western River Expedition. This was the attraction that was to be built in Walt Disney World instead of the Pirates of the Caribbean.

When Walt Disney World first opened there was an outcry from park patrons for the Pirates attraction to be built in the Florida park.

So the Western River Expedition was scrapped in favor of Pirates.

I had heard that a detailed "ride-through" presentation had been given at D23 but was unable to find a video anywhere online...until today. Here's the video giving some fun details of that lost attraction.

And here's a link to an Article that I wrote a few years ago about the Western River Expedition.
