Addendum: A sheltered cove

Last week, we took a look at the remnants of River Country from Bay Lake. However, there are still some other pieces scattered about, for those who know where to look. Of course, I’m speaking of Fort Wilderness.After the recent refurbishment to the Meadow Swimmin’ Pool, the new water slide wraps itself around a water tower with the long forgotten Fort Wilderness Railroad emblem. This tower used to stand guard at the entrance to River Country, without the FWRR icon. Prior to its introduction at the pool, it also served as propping at the entrance to Mickey’s Backyard BBQ pavilion.Though it has had all of its artwork removed, the water wagon that can be found right across from Crockett’s Tavern, heading out towards Bay Lake, also was a piece of the River Country puzzle. For guests walking to River Country, it marked the intersection where they would need to turn to make their way down to the entrance plaza. It had with the River Country name on its side and the Fort Wilderness Mickey icon on its rear, along with the tagline, “The greatest water adventure of all!”
