Setting aside for a minute what they might be doing to the soil that could be "misconstrued"!Disney have filed a SFWMD permit today to do geotech boring for "project 89". You can see in the image below that this is near Ft Wilderness of both sides of the old River County site. These borings are done to ***** the soil structure in a area where they plan to build.

Gotta agree. I was worried that it would make the "quiet" (DVC) side noisey due to the larger pool attracting more people but it's basically the same. They just stuck some cabins out there and beefed the theming up along the lake. The new food place is nice and it looks great overall. I really can't complain.I thought they did a fine job with Copper Creek.
really hope this ISNT what their doing!!Isn't this a coincidence. I was on Maps today and noticed River Country is still on there? Or has it recently been added? Regardless, sent a request to set it as closed.

Could this be happening again?
Every time I have seen one of these it has been in preparation for something they already have plans to build. Temporary Wetland Impact simply means that they need to do this drilling work in wetlands, but this permit is not asking to build anything permeant there. The request for something permanent would come in the next permit.Setting aside for a minute what they might be doing to the soil that could be "misconstrued"!
I'm thinking this could go one of two ways. It could be straightforward drilling to see what kind of foundations might be needed in the future, what they might be building on (toxicity etc).
But a temporary Wetland Exhibit could also be something akin to Discovery Island perhaps? Demolish the existing unsafe structures and create some kind of wildlife reserve/sanctuary.
It would be a shame if FW is going to be over-shadowed by another resort. OTOH, maybe they want to expand the cabins.
