Pulling the Plug on Frontierland's Koi Ponds of America

The waterway that connects Disneyland's Jungle Cruise to the Castle Moat has been tarped over again, hopefully to alleviate the construction "improvements" that destroyed the once-rustic riverbanks.

Originally, the inlet was drained and cleaned, then construction crews built a new guest-proof bridge at the entrance of Frontierland. While the river was dry, it was given a fresh coat of concrete. Unfortunately, to the dismay of WDI's show quality control team, the waterway now resembles a swimming pool.

"The contractor that was hired to do the work did put a fresh coat of concrete, and created new sides and a lip," confirmed a cast member. "It totally looks like an artificial canal and not a river cutting through the entrance of Adventureland and Frontierland."

Let's hope the second time's the charm.
