Disney’s Discovery Island (Bay Lake)

Discovery Island

Discovery island is located on Bay Lake in Orlando, FL. The island was once a public place for guests where they could observe many exotic animals and species of birds.

The island opened on April 8th, 1974 and eventually closed it’s doors 25 years later on April 8th, 1999. There are many speculations on why Discovery Island closed, but mainly due to the opening of Animal Kingdom, leading to a low attendance and eventually the demise of Discovery Island.

    They could build something cool there. Like ziplines. Or an Island resort. Disney’s Fantasy Island.
