    Kevin, what year was this unifying canal project conceived and started?
    Answering my own question, sort of, if 1764 was 200 years before one of the imageineer's birth dates, that means they were born in 1964. Assuming mid-20s as a reasonable minimum age for a contributing imagineer, that puts the time about contemporary with the NOS walk-way redo where they added the bridge over the Pirates queue. Am I right?

      Yes, the plan was pitched when they were first re-doing the the NOS esplanade to fix the Fantasmic viewing areas, which was mid-1990s. It never went past blue-sky phase.

        So that means that there was still no ORIGINAL idea by walt or whoever during the time that the two rides were built.

            Both rides are NOT based on a story or book. There are stories inside the rides but the ride itself is not based on a book or anything.

            There is a great article in the current version of E-ticket which has the most detailed information of the walk thru version of the ride (which was never built) that I have ever seen (complete with map).
