I don’t get hung up too badly on closed attractions at Walt Disney World, I accept that change has to happen. I mourn for a short while and then move on....but River Country stung a little.. . I think it’s the way it was done that bothered me. It closed indefinitely in 2001, but they only declared it permanently closed in 2005. And then they just left it to decay 😱 . I couldn’t believe the YouTube videos and photos that came out of the park dried up, overgrown, falling apart...it was haunting 😢 . I have fond memories of River Country, and I’m so glad my Dad snapped a ton of photos of the place back in its glory days. Although the last picture of me in the River Rapids with that boy led to my sister teasing me for the rest of the holiday that I had a new boyfriend 🙄 . Who remembers River Country? Did you visit? Do you miss it? Do we need to talk about Discovery Island too? ☺️ . . . . #disneyrivercountry #rivercountry #disneyfortwilderness #fortwilderness #fortwildernesscampground #abandoneddisney #forgottendisneyworld #waltdisneyworld #oldschooldisney #vintagedisney #90sdisney #disneymemories #disneyworld #vintagedisneyworld #disneyregram #happilyeverdisney #disneycollection #disneycommunity #disneygram #disneyaccount #disneyblogger #disneyinsta #disneyig #disneylove #disneyuk #ukdisney #disneyhappinessuk #disneybringshappiness #spotofdisney
We always love stopping by and checking out the old and abandoned Communicore East entrance at Epcot. As you can see on the right, the plants are beginning to overgrow.

This flower planter is a fossil from the now extinct "Horizons"(1983-1999) in Disney's Epcot Center. . The shape of this planter mirrors that of the iconic shape of the Horizons building. . Horizons was an omnimover attraction that depicted the possibilities of the future through the advancement of technology. It was demolished in 2000 to make room for "Mission: SPACE"(2003-). . This fossil is accessible to guests and can be found in the "Future World" section of Epcot, infront of "Mission: SPACE" 📸1: ThemeParkFossils 📸2: RetroWDW.com #WDW #wdwap #disneyworld #waltdisneyworld #epcot #EpcotCenter #futurewold #universalstudios #horizons #Dreamfinder #figment #universalorlando #UOAP #florida #orlando #islandofadventure #defunctland #defunctdisney #forgottenuniversal #forgottendisneyworld #deadthemeparkrides #yesterland #yesterworld
Photo Credit📷: Disney Wiki - All you Animal Kingdom lovers will remember this land! Camp Minnie-Mickey was a land at Disney’s Animal Kingdom that hosted the fan favorite, Festival of the Lion King show, as well as a few character meet and greets.

I took a quick detour on my way home today because I recently learned that a relic of Epcot's past was parked nearby. One of Epcot's retired Omnibusses is located in Downtown Kissimmee. . . Did you ever ride one? It's hard to believe there was once a time that the crowd level at Epcot was so low that a bus could drive around the World Showcase. . . #waltdisneyworldphotography #waltdisney #waltdisneyworld #epcot #epcotcenter #omnibus #downtownkissimmee #magickingdom #magickingdompark #experiencekissimmee #worldshowcase #journeyintoimagination #igersdisney #disneylifestyle #disneylife #forgottendisneyworld #vintagedisney #retroepcot #disney #disneysea #disneymagic #disneyobsessed #epcot94 #epcotflowerandgardenfestival #epcotfoodandwinefestival #spaceshipearth
This fire station facade is a fossil from the now extinct opening day attraction "Ghostbusters Spooktactular"(1990-1998) the show building was replaced by "Twister: Ride It Out"(1998-2015). And the facade is currently part of "Hollywood Rip Ride Rocket" (2009-) This fossil is visible to guests and can be found next to "Race Through New York: Starting Jimmy Fallon" in the New York section of Universal Studios in Orlando, FL. #WDW #wdwap #disneyworld #waltdisneyworld #epcot #EpcotCenter #futurewold #universalstudios #universalstudios #figment #universalorlando #UOAP #florida #orlando #islandofadventure #defunctland #defunctdisney #forgottenuniversal #forgottendisneyworld #deadthemeparkrides #yesterland #yesterworld #Ghostbusters

After a very long run, Leave A Legacy at Epcot is officially being torn down and relocated to a smaller location outside of the park. Many saw this as a major eyesore, but I'm sure we can all agree it'll be weird not seeing these structures when when we enter the park. - #waltdisneyworldresort #waltdisneyworld #epcotcenter #epcot #futureworld #leavealegacy #retroepcot #retrodisney #fadedmagic #forgottendisneyworld #orlando #florida #igfamous #sad #throwback #outdated
Photo Credit📷: Disney Avenue - The amount of construction and work put into one of the most iconic, well-known park icons is made up of many hard workers! This structure would soon become Spaceship Earth, not only a park icon for Epcot Center, but an attraction as well inside this geodesic sphere. In 2019, Spaceship Earth is still standing beautifully as the park icon, but the attraction itself will face a 2 year long refurbishment starting 2020! - #waltdisneyworldresort #waltdisneyworld #wdw #epcotcenter #epcot #spaceshipearth #retrodisney #orlando #florida #forgottendisneyworld #fadedmagic #old #outdated #sad #igfamous #throwback #retro

Going thru some old photos and came across this one. It was 1986 and I’m pretty sure it’s Magic Kingdom. But why are there cars there?!?

In 1973, the Swan Boats attraction took guests on a ride around the hub of the Magic Kingdom and the Swiss Family Treehouse. This attraction was very popular and beautiful! Recently, the moat around Cinderella’s Castle has been fully drained for construction purposes. Well, the Swan Boat tracks still remain underneath all that water, which is truly incredible since it’s been gone since 1983! - #waltdisneyworld #waltdisneyworldresort #wdw #magickingdom #cinderellascastle #swanboats #orlando #florida #forgottendisneyworld #fadedmagic #retrodisney #igfamous #throwback #sad #outdated

Between the queue for Journey Into Imagination with Figment and the Image Works gift shop lies a small hallway.

Let's take a trip back to the days of Studios past. For a while, this was my favorite park. I loved the studio concept and how it was implemented. The park was home to LMA, Great Movie Ride and the Osborne Lights
Photo Credit📷 @retrowdw - What a beautiful shot of the Crystal Palace and the crystal clear water beneath. This shot is from the 1980s.

Up in my shop now in time for the Studios 30th anniversary is my tribute to one of my favorite childhood memories - the backstage tour at Disney MGM Studios! I credit this park with providing the spark that ignited my passion for cinema and love of old Hollywood. One of my favorite parts of the original backstage tour (which started out as a multi hour walking tour along with the tram ride!) was walking and driving by the large props from some of the films of the past and present. Cars from Dick Tracy and Who Framed Roger Rabbit, spaceships from Flight of the Navigator and Star Wars, the Tank and motorcycles from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade... I was always in awe going by them and seeing them in person in the Boneyard. #thesteeledesigns #disneymgmstudios #hollywoodstudios #dhs #mgmstudios #disney #waltdisneyworld #forgottendisneyworld #magicalmakers #props #boneyard #backstagetour #streetsofamerica #galaxysedge #starwars #teepublic #whoframedrogerrabbit #dicktracy #flightofthenavigator #thegoldengirls #okaybutistillcallitmgm
Star Wars Launch Bay construction at Disney's Hollywood Studios circa 2015. Many were angered for this opening due to Launch Bay replacing the Magic of Disney Animation which was a staple MGM Studios experience. Four years have passed and Launch Bay still remains. Will Launch Bay stay open after Galaxy's Edge opens? The space could be utilized (as well as Animation Courtyard as a whole) and be transformed into a whole new immersive land. - #waltdisneyworldresort #waltdisneyworld #mgmstudios #hollywoodstudios #animationcourtyard #starwarslaunchbay #starwars #retrodisney #fadedmagic #forgottendisneyworld #orlando #florida #igfamous #sad #throwback #outdated #construction

The Villas (which opened in 2013) were built to allow DVC guests to live the life of luxury at Walt Disney World's flagship resort!

According to many close sources, it has been confirmed that the buildings that once housed many interactive fun exhibits, known as Innoventions, will be getting gutted or completely bulldozed. (Still up in the air as to what they’re 100% doing) Innoventions used to be one of the main attractions to do at Epcot. From Sum of All Thrills, to SEGA, Stormstruck to Vision House, all of these exhibits are now a thing of the past. Also, more information has been released that the Fountain of Nations will be getting removed and replaced with a Beer Garden... I honestly don’t know what to think.

Another photo from 2015 that I took on my old Samsung Galaxy S3. Captain EO was the only Walt Disney World attraction to open, close, open, and close again. I was lucky enough to experience this attraction on its second time around. Captain EO is a classic Epcot Center attraction that was brought back to life only to be killed again...I'm just glad we still have the Magic Eye Theater (where the attraction was located). It even still looks the same in the lobby! - #waltdisneyworldresort #waltdisneyworld #epcotcenter #epcot #futureworld #imaginationpavilion #magiceyetheater #captaineo #michaeljackson #retroepcot #retrodisney #forgottendisneyworld #fadedmagic #orlando #florida #sad #throwback #outdated

⚠️⚠️⚠️BREAKING NEWS!!!!!! It’s been announced officially today by Disney Parks Blog that Star Tours: The Adventures Continue will be permanently closing June 23rd, 2019. The reasoning for this closure is that there is no extra room in Galaxy’s Edge for this attraction and that having this attraction outside of Galaxy’s Edge would lose the immersion. Bob Chapek, Chairman of Parks stated in the article “We understand that this closure may be upsetting for fans, but we have better things coming on the way, very soon!” This attraction has been at MGM Studios since 1989. This will be a huge piece missing from the Echo Lake area.

Sorry for the semi-poor quality of the photos! Found this on my camera roll from 2015.

Photo Credit📸: Yesterland - Who remembers when fastpasses were THE BEST thing to come to Walt Disney World? They certainly do help, especially with huge crowds and is easily accessible by the MyDisneyExperience app! But back then, you had to physically grab a fastpass! Simply slide your ticket card in the machine, and BAM! You get a paper fastpass so you can come back and ride when your FP time is! The fastpass system itself now is the exact same, except you select your own times and do it completely digitally. Do you think Fastpass+ (the new way now through MDE) has ruined some attractions? Spaceship earth used to NEVER have a wait, until it was added to the new Fastpass+ lineup in 2014. - #waltdisneyworldresort #waltdisneyworld #wdw #fastpass #fastpassplus #magickingdom #epcot #hollywoodstudios #animalkingdom #orlando #florida #forgottendisneyworld #fadedmagic #retrodisney #old #throwback #igfamous #sad #outdated

Does anyone know where in Walt Disney World this could be?! Looks like something out of an abandoned movie theater. This was actually the Planet Hollywood store at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

These wooden kiosks are fossils from the now extinct "World Key"(1982-1994) at Epcot. . World Key was an interactive digital service, sponsored by Bell Laboratories, that allowed guests to explore Epcot's attractions, make reservations and video calls. A kind of first generation of the MyDisneyExperiance app. . These kiosks are accessible to guests and can be found in front of guest services to the left of Spaceship Earth. If you look closely you can see that the speakers and lights are still there even though the touch screens and been boarded up. 📸: Theme park fossils . #WDW #wdwap #disneyworld #waltdisneyworld #epcot #EpcotCenter #futurewold #universalstudios #Dreamfinder #figment #universalorlando #UOAP #florida #orlando #islandofadventure #defunctland #defunctdisney #forgottenuniversal #forgottendisneyworld #deadthemeparkrides #yesterland #yesterworld #instadisney #worldshowcase #worldkey
