Your husband may be thinking about Discovery Island (also on this map) which is another closed attraction.
I think you are correct! Thanks so much for the map!

There are no rules to including a picture in a quote......some people just feel like they HAVE to post something but have nothing interesting to say...so they complain about ANYTHING!!

Its sad to see it look like that. You'd think they'd at least get rid of the old slides, rocks, etc because if they ever want to make it into anything one day, its gonna cost quite an amount of $ to clean that up. Anyway, I wished I'd gotten a chance to go to River Country in 2000 when I went, but my parents said no.

Older photos are interesting to look at and see the changes....
In your photo seems all the boys swim trunks are loose fit and one solid color..would not be the same today....I just find those little things interesting

Would have to look back but i bet there are almost all one piece bathing suits as well.
DS is up on the platform waiting her turn....she's in the one-piece pink swimsuit and wearing goggles...

You know, I think what I'm coming to love best about this thread is that it's sparked people to share their past experiences and photos from RC. I never made it there as a kid, but always wanted to and love seeing what it was like in the day.
that picture was taken in 1995....that was the year DD, DS and I went to WDW on our own....DH couldn't get away from work that year...
we were at WDW for 3 weeks and went to RC several times....we also went to BB and TL lots of times, but RC was much less crowded by then (since everyone preferred the newer waterparks).....

i'm really surprised i took this picture....i ususally don't take a camera with me to the waterparks, since i'm always in the water too....maybe i specifically took it that time to try to get some special shots like this one...

we went to RC every summer - usually several times each vist - right up to 2 months before they closed it forever, though we had no idea at the time that it was being closed forever.....we were shocked and saddened when we realized....

Closed but structure still there:

The Odyssey Restaurant at EPCOT

The Wonders of Life Pavilion

Petting farm at FW

Swamp trail at FW

Railroad in FW (a few traces remain)

Ariel's restaurant at Caribbeach Beach Resort

The Kitchen Kabaret replaced by Food Rocks and close to make room for Soarin'

Horizions Pavilion replaced by Mission Space

Name changed, but still operating:

Dixie Landings AKA Port Orleans still operating

Disney Inn AKA SOG still operating

Disney Institute AKA Saratoga Springs still operating

The Good Turn restaurant AKA the Garden Grill

Symbiosis AKA the Circle of Life

Makin' Memories/Magic Journeys morphed into Captain EO that then morped into "Honey I Shrunk the Audience"

The Universe of Energy has morphed into Ellen's Energy Adventure

CommuniCore morped into Innovations

Hydrolators, The Seas film, and Seacab morphed into The Seas with Nemo and Friends.

World of Motion morphed into Test Track

There are many more like Millenium village and some of the prior Illuminations shows and Main Street Electrical Light parade that I first saw back in the 70's when it debuted at DL, but the all the above I remember except for the RR at FW.

Yes, that is actually on my Van currently and I've had it since 1986 and was on our Volvo station wagon until I sold it in 2002 and transferred it to our Van.

Yep, messed up and the sign for Ariel's was still there when we ate at Beaches and Cream last week.

and you missed

Bonfamille's at Port Orleans, French Quarter

Never ate there, but remember the name.

Toad morphed into Winnie the Pooh

Yep remember that, but didn't go thru all the MK stuff

Mickey's Revue morphed into Lion King that morphed into Philharmagic

Yep remember those too and while Philharmagic is good the Lion King was good too

Jungle Book show morphed into Tarzan which morphed into Nemo

Mission to the Moon/Mars morphed into Alien Encounter which morphed into Stitch

Yep remember all those and Alien Encounter was the best IMHO

Several Circle Vision stuff is now Monster's Inc

Yes, and this is one where the current one is a little better than the previous version
What else??
How could we have forgotten "Submarine Voyage"

Or the boat ride in AK that I thought was great. The docks are still there and some are now used for character greetings.

I even thought the water/parasailing show at EPCOT that they did for several years was good.

Also, the keelboats/canoes ... I might have DL and WDW mixed up on what is where and what is still open. Our last time at DL was back in 2004 and was only for like 4 days in the parks and was where we first did Soarin'.

When you can name and remember all these "lost" morphed things at WDW means you've been there too many times and for too long if that's possible

Another lost attraction with traces still remaining.....the Swan boats at MK. The dock is still there near the castle. Those were so cool.
