A while back I spent some time* at Disney's first water park, River Country. Yep, it's still there where they left it yet it no longer functions as a park. More like a watery ghost town. There are few things in the world that compare to the feeling of walking through an abandoned attraction, let alone an entire abandoned park.
I do not suggest you go jumping over fences to climb around your favorite forgotten Disney destination. (Maybe you just peak through the cracks in the fences the next time you are at The Hoop-Dee-Doo Review at Fort Wilderness--- located just south of River Country).
