Disneylandâ€™s Rivers of America set to be drained
Right after the holiday season, visitors to Disneyland will find a dry Rivers of America.
The river is scheduled to be drained beginning Jan. 4 and wonâ€™t be filled up again until May, according to officials with the theme park.
While the river is drained, many Disney fans would like to see something done to add some new life to the Rivers of America and the slow ride on the Mark Twain Riverboat and Sailing Ship Columbia, which some find a little boring.
â€œTheyâ€™re only boring to the extent that much of the current view from the ships consists of very large trees and scenes that are old and static,â€ said Werner Weiss, curator of Yesterland.com.
Some of those scenes include a variety of wildlife statues, an Indian Village and the settlerâ€™s cabin.
The settlerâ€™s cabin has seen most of the changes. It used to be known as the â€œburning settlerâ€™s cabin.â€ The back story was that it was set afire by American Indians. At one time there was a dead settler in front of the cabin.
