PHOTOS: Demolition Begins at Former River Country Water Park Site for New Reflections Resort

The first signs of demolition have been spotted at the old location of Disney’s River Country water park.¬†There are two excavator’s stationed within the old water park, however most of the site still appears to be intact at the moment. The demolition will make way for an all new Disney Vacation Club Resort called “Reflections: A Disney Lakeside Resort”.

The old entrance to Mickey’s Backyard BBQ is fenced off and no longer accessible to guests. There are walls up beyond that where the construction site begins.


On Bay Lake, the first signs of demolition are visible. Two excavators (that ironically say “Piece of Mind”) are stationed on the site.


There is also a solar powered camera in place across the lake on the old Discovery Island. It is pointed at the River Country construction site.

Upon returning from my trip out to the site, i spotted a construction crew heading out for the day on a boat of their own.
