I just read this entire thread and I've gotta say I feel like I just had the pixie dust knocked out of me. There is a group of youtube videos called Vanished World of Disney. Pretty interesting.

Sorry about being a buzz kill. You know, I never knew there were abandoned resorts on Dis property until I read about it on another thread. We usually stay elsewhere on property. Yeah, the youtube videos can be depressing. Definitely don't want to look at that before an upcoming trip.

Talking about Discovery Island... Does anyone remember the tropicla birds that would sit on your shoulder when you would get off the boat? They would never want to get off you! They only way you could get rid of them was to pass them off on to some other unsuspecting person that just stepped off the boat! That still make us laugh!!!

Ah well to be honest after staying at the Pop 3 times, I always found the Legendary Years fascinating and really mysterious.

I had NO idea river country was still there, the aerial shots are really cool. Wish I could've seen it (I'm only 15 so it's before my time) but I did show my dad who was there when it was opened.

Ah, someone beat me to the abandoned Skyway, but I'll get into detail. As your walking from Fronteirland to Fantasyland, at the stroller parking for Small World you can see what looks almost like an alpine cabin almost. That is the abandoned Skyway station, it's out of commission but still there. I believe you can also see the Tomorrowland one if you pay attention on the TTA.

Somehow stumbled across this old thread and am happy that legendary pop years got turned into something instead of being torn down!

I wonder what will really become of River Country. Will be constantly checking the Dis because you all know too well!!

My mom had a bird poop on her at Discovery Island lol I remember going into the bathroom with her as she tried to clean it off and everyone telling her it was a sign of good luck lol that had to be about 20 years ago!

I wonder if any of this stuff is viewable by taking a boat ride around the area. And if any of the areas that offer boats are connected to this body of water. I know you couldn't go on the property but could you take a ride by?

ok did a little search to answer my own question and found this, thought it was interesting:

http://www.abandonedfl.com/?p=241

Also, it seems Seven Seas Lagoon is connected to the body of water around Discovery Island and bordering River Country, so I wonder if guests are not allowed to cross into that area if they are taking the boat out of Grand Floridian. Maybe I'll start another thread and see if I can get that question answered!

Not so much a resort that no longer exists, but how about a resort that was never built. I'm going strictly by memory here, but I remember reading that Walt's original vision included 2 resorts on the Seven Seas Lagoon that were never built (but the land was graded/developed). I'm pretty sure one had a middle eastern theme to it and the other was an Asian theme. The Grand Floridian was eventually built on one of the sites and the other site is still undeveloped (between the TTC and the Contemporary Resort).

You can totally see River Country by boat - we've seen it numerous times. Can't remember if that was the boat from WL or the Poly or what. There are various boats that pass by RC. You can't see much though.
