WDW Photo Update : TRON Lightcycles Construction Site, Epcot Ratatouille, River Country and more

I've got a WDW update for you to start the week with the latest pictures of the TRON Lighcycles  construction site, Epcot Ratatouille and more.

Let's start by Epcot to have a look at the Ratatouille site on a different angle than usual. The building facade below is not new. But on the next pics you can see the wall that they are constructing below the facade to make sure guests can not look out of that area of water.

Nearby is the new gondolas station for world gateway park entrance. The painting on it looks nice.

Let's move to WDW Magic Kingdom to have a look at TRON Lightcycles which starts to go vertical on the construction site.  That said, it's not specially interesting right now, which is normal as they are at the start of teh cosntruction of an attraction that won't open before two years.

Let's have a look now at the works for the new resort where was a long time ago the now extict River Country, They're currently removing everything that was left and clear the ground for the construction.

While we're there let's have a look at the River Country / Fort Wilderness area and the picture below shows where was the entrance sign.

Next pictures shows what was the River Country ticket booth...

But, wait a minute, on the vintage picture below is written "Fort Wilderness Pavilion / Mickey's Backyard Barbecue", so was it River Country ticket booth, or...? In fact, it was River Country ticket booth as you'll see on the second pciture below and they utilized this area later for the Mickey BBQ but this is the river country area anyway.

The next picture shows what was the inside of the ticket booth where guests would purchase tickets and now you can see it is old and decaying.

The picture below shows the entrance turnstile roof that is to the left of the ticket booth window.

Anyone remember the Fort Wilderness train, also extinct since a looong time?

The trace of the train track or the path through which the train was moving is still visible.

And what happened to the Fort Wilderness train now, you ask? Well the least we can say is that the train is not in good condition, rotting away, as you'll see on the pics below.

Well, that's all for now, stay tuned on D&M for a new WDW update coming soon!
