Closer to guest services in a little shop facing the train station. It has actually been there awhile.

Before they closed in part of Center street to add more space to the Emporium, it used to be on Center Street on the left as you are facing the castle.

What a relief. One of my rituals at the beginning of a WDW visit is to get my haircut with the Pixie dust treatment. I know, I know not much up there to cut, but the Pixie dust hides the baldness for a day.

How did we go from River Country to hair cuts?

(I'm glad to hear that it's still there though )

Does anyone else have personal photos from RC that they'd like to share? It's so much fun "going back in time"

I can't even believe those pics

The inside of the shack is full of trash and other artifacts from River Country, including an employee recognition plaque:





This looks like some kind of diorama or something. Notice the random doll head. Creepy!:






A few more shots from inside the shack:







That’s all I have!

TCD
Those pics are amazing! How did you get them?! I can't even explain my feeling when looking through those pictures. I never went to River Country, but have often passed it when on the ferries. It is so intriguing how Disney just up and left all the remains. Kinda spooky and eerie looking at the pictures. And can't help but feeling a bit gutted when seeing it just sitting there rotting away.

anyway tcd how did you get in there?
All the water they used was the lake water. It was shut down when Florida announced people should stay away from swimming in fresh water due to dangerous bacteria. Still very sad

I had never heard of River Country before, looks like it was a great place. I would love to go explore!

Is it just me, or does River Country look a little more than just run down and abandoned. It looks trashed!

Maybe it has been re-purposed into Disney's secret landfill.

Looks like most any derelict site left for a bunch of years. You'd think Disney would demolish the remains and haul off the debris. Though leaving it abandoned is cheaper until a curious guest gets hurt or killed there, then the lawsuits could cost a bundle to litigate and settle.

Don't forget, we experience hurricanes down here. Some (not all) of the trash could be attributed to that.
