looks like great place for gators now. what a shame disney just lets things go to pieces. river country was a great little water park. don't know why they didn;'t at least keep the pool open. they just let things go away. kinda like the swamp trail. it used to be a great place to walk and enjoy the nature. but now i guess they are more interested in making money than keeping all the neat things up and running at the fort.

anyway tcd how did you get in there?

    GREAT job on the pics. Now we will have to go over the top and get snake bitten to take better pics look for me at Celebeation Hospital.

    After looking at the pictures - I am shocked that Disney has not torn it down by now! That is a huge liability and LAWSUIT waiting to happen. The scary thing is that they are so into security - anyone could hang out there and never be seen> I went there many moons ago and I am amazed that the area looks the way it does.... :eek:

    I was wondering where you've been Andrew. Todd would have to rent a helicopter to get better pics lol. Is this your comeback? Glad to see you made such an interesting spy mission.

    Great job!!! Wonderful reporting. Did you bring out any souvenirs?? I would have had to pick up an item or 2.

    The last time I tried to get some photos of RC I was creeping around the fence/wall up near the front area, and got nervous, looking over my shoulder, just raising my camera up and over the top to snap a few pics.

    So, what's next on your list of off limits areas? How about Discovery Island?:thumbsup2

    I am sooooo jealous! It is so creepy though, looking at those pics! It looks like the aftermath of a nuclear attack. Now I'm scared of what Todd is going to do!

    I don't know how you do it!! You get into places no one else would even think about going!!

    These pictures remind me of scenes from History Channel's "Life After People" program. Sad...sad...sad.

    Andrew, great job on the pics. Now I will have to spend thousands of dollars to outdo what you have done. We are looking for a helicopter to come into Disney airspace and shoot better pics than you did. So, just so you know - it's on!!! ;)

    I saw Andrew and the twins at Trails End last night. He was a little upset with his Gators. Sorry Todd but he had some kind of hovercraft golfcart he had rented but wouldn't give me the co. he rented it from.

    TCD these are incredible pictures. Thank you so much for sharing. For those of us that got to enjoy River Country during its Glory Days, it's so sad to see what it has become. :sad2:
    It sure is.....:sad2:

    TCD, what is on the plaque in this photo. I would think it might be a nice piece of memorabilia for some RC cast members who may have been recognized for their service.

    It is a shame the place is just left to rot. At least clean up the garbage. GEEZ! :scared1:

    TCD,

    Nice work with the pics!!

    Anyone hear anything about Disney tearing it down? Tigg was saying she heard they might tear it down and build DVC camp sites in that area.

    But then again that probly came from a bus driver, who talked to a boat captin, who talked to a life guard who talked to Walt.

    I actually asked this question about 2 years ago, and the Boat Driver said "It can't be done, due to the ground being "unsafe" so to speak...:confused3
