I really wish they would do a HM resort on Discovery Island! Fully immersive experience like SW. Maybe not so appealing to the diaper bag and stroller set, but it would give us old fogies something new to do.

I wish they would leave River Country alone - I can't explain why, but to me, there's something mysterious about the property and my family and I enjoy scoping it out on the sprites and on walks in the woods - we may or may not have strayed off the approved trail

I kind of agree with you. I remember some big golf resort that they were talking about building back in 2002, when I took the tour. They even went so far as to have artists' renderings of the resort. About 6 months later, poof! It was gone and SSR happened. Much different from what we saw in the photos and were talked about.

probably too much risk for lost golf balls and limbs for the alligators.

Yeah this specific rumor about River Country has been going on for years.....while I love the idea, Im a bit skeptical.

Please pardon my ignorance -- what is HM? Haunted Mansion? Hidden Mickey?

Nevertheless, I'm glad the River Country property is being re-purposed.

Sorry. Haunted Mansion. I think that would be a really cool theme for a hotel, and it would work well on Discovery island since it’s more “isolated”.
