If the Missouri government would have paid, and the park was built, I wonder if it would have been as successful as the other Disney Parks. Definitely a neat piece of Disney history!!

I think it would have been successful. The place only has about 40% of the amount of visitors that Disney World does, but it would also have been much smaller so it wouldn't need the same number of visitors to make a profit. And the 21 millions are without a Disney Park. Had they built Walt Disney's Riverfront Square, there would probably have been even more people visiting the place. Being an indoor park, it would have been different from the others.
Today we have concepts like indoor surfing, climbing and skiing, so Walt was ahead of his time.

Middle America is not given the respect it deserves. Walt Disney was a true visionary and his family friendly conservative values appealed to all Americans. This park would have been a national icon. :(

Walt did want to give visitors a feeling of small town America based on his own experience in Marceline in Missouri in the old days more than 100 years ago, so his choice for the park was probably no coincidence. It could very well have become an icon.
