They are doing something to river country. From the amount of surveying and bore holes that have been drilled, something is very near in the future.

I would tend to believe they'll never rebuild RC though. It would be nice to see something else constructed there.

Yes with the two other Water Parks that are much bigger and easier to get to River Country will never open again as a Water Park.

I never said it would be a water park.
The future is near.

Where did you get this "insider" info (if you don't mind me asking)?

What is the latest rumor?

The last I heard was DVC Campsites along the lake.

I loved River Country as a kid. Every year we returned to WDW, my brother and I could never wait to get back on the water slides at Whoop 'N Holler Hollow - we looked forward to it all year. I have so many great memories there, it makes me sad to see my old stomping grounds in such a state of disrepair. I hope they demolish it soon and build something fun there.

Here are some pictures of good 'ole River Country my mom took during a family vacation in February 1980:

check out Disney on Bing maps

Just thought I'd share but thanks for the pics of the aging River Country waterpark...btw you may want to check out Bing's "bird's eye" option on their maps site.
It gives you a great perspective of what the park and other areas of Disney look like from the air.
Link:
bing.com/maps

then search for river country, orlando fl and use the drop down where you see aerial and select bird's eye....enjoy

Sounds like a commercial for Bing lol

We'll be up at WDW soon. Maybe I'll ask around and see if any of the CMs has an idea about what might be going on with the property.

I thought only the bus drivers knew what was going on?
