In the 9 years since Disney World closed its River Country water park for the last time there has been off-and-on speculation about whether the park would ever return. Based on this series of photos over at The DISboards, I think we can safely say that Disney has written off River Country and it’s never coming back.

WDW has two superior water parks now, but it’s really sad to see the state of disrepair River Country has been allowed to fall into. A little maintenance or care and this area would be available for private parties and the like today.

I wonder if this is what Pleasure Island will look like 9 years from now.
