Trespassers brag on Internet that they infiltrated former Discovery Island at Walt Disney World

Posted Wednesday, April 21, 2010 7:00 PM | Contributed by kevin38

A former Walt Disney World attraction that has been closed for years is once again being visited by tourists, but what the visitors are doing is extremely dangerous and possibly illegal. Discovery Island, located in the middle of Disney’s Bay Lake, is off-limits to resort guests. For a group of adventurers that make it their mission to explore forbidden territory and brag about it on the Internet, that does not apply to them.

^ouch! I didn't say it was ok or right (or did I?) but that, in this case, there was no harm done. No one was hurt.

Damn, I forgot to spell check first.... :) I will leave it as is though since you caught that. Anyways, I know it should be "boyscout".

Oh, about three or four pounds... ;)

Guess it's just too obvious when it's all spelled-out-like.

Yeah, that's like that stupid email asking about 3 words in the english language that end in GRY. It doesn't make sense in written form.

Maybe they should rename it "Alligator Island" and that would scare people away from the Island.

The island probably looks better now than it did in 1999 when the attraction was open. Hahah. I found it to be oddly abandoned looking when it was in full swing--cramped and makeshift. No elements of magic. No "How did they do that?" Just eerie zoo-like exhibits. Netted structures containing exotic birds. No music. No personalities. A few employees with dazed looks on their faces. Strange, and a little bit unsettling.

I wish I would have known Discovery Island was like that, Bill. Sounds like my kind of attraction, especially the part about it being "Strange, and a little bit unsettling."
