Disney's River Country was basically 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 on November 2, 2001. The park featured a sandy bottom and unique water filtering system using confluent water from adjacent Bay Lake, which was dammed off creating a natural-looking man-made lagoon. The park's water was at the higher level than the lake's, which was an effort to prevent lake water from going into the park. Last year, Disney announced that they would drain and fill in Upstream Plunge, the 330,000 gallon pool. There are no immediate plans to tear down any other part of the park. Along with Discovery Island, it was left to deteriorate rather than be demolished. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

"We scanned the negatives and found four images had enough detail in them to tell that the last time this camera was used, it belonged to a man (who's even in one of the pictures, carrying the camera's case) who probably brought his expensive piece of gear on one of his travels," said Oers. Continue reading to see what he found.
