David, The COTTON BLOSSOM was at Worlds of Fun by 1974. A "steamboat buff" friend of mine, who was an animator for Disney, said there was another sternwheeler on the MGM lot that had been used in the 1959 television series "Riverboat", starring Burt Reynolds and Darren McGavin. The boat, named the ENTERPRISE (which was also used in other other movies) finally rotted down and was scrapped. Episodes of "Riverboat" are available on both VHS and DVD on Ebay.
