The new color looks indeed better than the old one, but I read at DLRPToday that Molly Brown isn't "The Queen Of The River" anymore. It got changed to "Western River Line". If you look closely you can read it.
No where near as much as California. The view from the boats are mainly of Big thunder Mountain. There is a cool smugglers cave near where the keel boats load. Then there is a cabin with an aa fisherman and his dog (the ones in the Bayou scene at DL's Pirates of the Caribbean).
There are some basic moose AAs and an old conastoga wagon (though these can be seen from the train). Then there used to be an awesome geyser scene with the T rex bones (the same ones as in Big Thunder at DL). Sadly the geysers have now been 101 for a few years, but they used to be awesome.
And there is a coyote on a rock, that can be seen from Boot hill by Phantom Manor.
Disneyland in Anaheim is unprecedented in the number of AA scenes from the boats and train. The MK and DLP are a disappointment in comparison.
