The link is work safe, but some of the other pages on the site do contain artistic nudity if that sort of thing offends anyone:

shaneperez.blogspot.com/2009/12/discovery-island.html

You'll have to cut and paste as my post count is not high enough to link this...
Finally got a chance to check out this link! Pretty dramatic way to got onto D.I.

I wonder if Shane Perez is a contractor for TCD? Maybe he hired this guy to do some scouting in anticipation of his own invasion.

Hey can you see TCD dressed up like General McArthur landing on the island corn cobb pipe and all?

You're exactly right. There are several ways to get into RC, but there are few who have the nerve and a the touch of slyness to do so. TCD does which why he is the King of investigative Fort Reports.
Now when I'm walking around the Fort taking pictures and checking things out, I can step one foot into a "closed" loop and 20 workers will be there in less than 5 seconds telling me to remove myself immediately.
I've tried to get to the old RC swamp walk cause the fishing would be excellent, but have been chased on both occasions. Just don't have what it takes....... So, just have to leave to the pro, TCD, (Total, Complete Detective).

Thats a fact. We LOVED that penny arcade , even my son enjoy'd it. it hasnt been gone too long. They opened it into Mickeys sportsman goods (or something like that), clothes and stuff, (a store anyways)
I reck'n Disney saw more $$ in merchandise than in pennies.

The blue plastic bottle sure isn't 10 plus years old. Think there have been other visitors to RC other than TCD.

Very cool thread!

I have never been to River Country, but remember hearing something about it.

I do have a very vague memory of what I think was Discovery Island sometime in the late '70s... seem to remember a lot of birds, and possibly a large aviary / bird cage that you actually walked through?

When we were planning our trip to Fort Wilderness in October 2008 (My lord, already over a year ago?!?), it took me awhile to realize that the "cool island jungle bird place" - as I described it to my family - is actually closed.

Keep the memories and pictures coming!!

There's very few, if anything, original to it's debute. Even Snow White got changed. The Country Bears is about the only thing that hasn't seen a change, but they did add the christmas show and summer vacation hoe-down, which both are gone, so it's back to the original.

The Oddysse building at Epcot is still in use. They use the kitchens to make the pizzas sold in the cart outside of test track. And the Grand Gathering dinners are held there. As well they usually house special events from the Food and Wine festival and Flower and Garden festival.

Even ToonTown used to have the stage show in the big tent before it got converted over to Character Meet and Greets. You can tell because of the way the floor dips and curves, only certain areas were filled in as needed for leveling.

The Tomorrowland end of the Sky Way ride has been recently torn down. Aparently they used to house the gandalas in it, but who knows what they did with it.

They took out the Galaxy Palace Theater to make more parking spaces and expand the Outdoor Foods storage building. Put in that stupid little stage for the Stitch show which got canceled after like a month... no pre thoughts into doing that one...
