Someone in Mousekeeping said that it was going to be the new Star Wars themed resort and she is transferring over there as soon as its opened. She said she is wanting to be in the Death Star building.

just a hunch here, but rumors have popped up again about a FW DVC add-on coming in the old river country area. When they added the DVC wing and had to fill in some of the beach front for construction, they removed land behind Shipwreck Island(the one by WL) to counter the land which had been added. The idea is they had to keep the same amount of lake footage.

Perhaps this is their removal to counter adding more land for DVC at FW. I have absolutely no basis for this idea other than I know the FW DVC rumors are popping up again.

This is the third or fourth time I've seen people mention this over the years in that exact spot. I believe that's just general landscaping and clearing of built up brush etc.

That was indeed the site of the planned Venetian, and later Mediterranean resorts. Word is that test pilings actually disappeared...

Some year ago they reportedly tested the land again, but the land still hadn't settled. Keep in mind that a lot of the area around the lagoon, and the lagoon itself, is not the original landscape.

It did appear that what they did last year WAS to clear sight lines. At least that's all they did.

There have been rumors about a total- or mostly-DVC monorail resort at that location, but they were mostly non-starters. They appear to have decided to build BLT and the GF DVC instead.

The hot rumor is the River Country location mentioned earlier, possibly dusting off the old Buffalo Junction plans.
