ABANDONED DISNEY: River Country [Part 2]

 

Thanks for a great response to Part 1.  Here are a few more photos of abandoned River Country.  

River Country sure was “the kersplashingest, kid-laughingest, rope-swingingest spot imaginable for the wet set” as shown below in this 1976 WORLD Magazine article, Today the World has a New Country- sent to us by my pal, Hoot.  If you have any great River Country photos, send them our way!

 

  

 

 

 

Also enjoy [Part 1][Part 3], and [Part 4].

ABANDONED DISNEY: River Country [Part 1]

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).

With a view of the Contemporary, Space Mountain, and Discover Island in both photos.

A floating yellow inner tube still floats in the swampy water.

 

[Part 2][Part 3], and [Part 4] now available.
