Disney’s Abandoned River Country 2018

Just a few hundred feet from the Magic Kingdom sits the infamous abandoned water park, River Country. Dormant since 2001, lets take a look at what the former family water park looks like in 2018.

Disney’s River Country was the first water park at Walt Disney World. Located near Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, it opened on June 20, 1976, and closed indefinitely in November 2001. On January 20, 2005, The Walt Disney Company announced that River Country would remain closed permanently.

Along with Discovery Island, it is one of only two Disney parks in their history to close permanently. Both were left to deteriorate rather than be demolished.
