:o  In one pamphlet I received it said the River Country Water park was closed through 2002, but I haven't heard if it has reopened or will it remain closed.  Do yall now what's going on?

Sadly, it looks like River Country is no more. There are certainly no plans to open it at all in 2003. As to what happens after that, only Disney know.

I had heard a rumor that River Country would be remade into a private water recreation/pool area for Fort Wilderness, the Wilderness Lodge, and the Vacation Club villas at the Wilderness Lodge.

If they bring back River Country I think it would need a lot of reworking to bring it up to the level of Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach.

Yeah tht kinda stinks, but River Country was OLD when I was a kid.  And i HATED swimming in the lake-water. BB and TL are just WAY too ahead of it to compete.  I haven't been down to WDW since 1997 and was sad to hear that Discovery Island was closed, but it makes sense now that AK is open.
