Yeah, one is always closed anyways, and the demand just isn't quite there during this time. It was always a nice option to have, but I think their use was rather limited to begin with during this season.They usually close one and then the other during this time for lack of demand, they are really expensive to operate, doesn't surprise me really.
They could always hire people, all lifeguards are not cp kids, they have lifeguards working now. Disney is just choosing what and when to open. There are lifeguards working other departments right nowDoes chlorine create lifeguards or something? Because the issue is that no college program means there's a lifeguard shortage.
Yeah, I think the waterparks don't really make money, but they're Disney's attempt to keep people on property instead of shortening their trip to go to other water parks. I suspect the water parks themselves operate at a loss. Given what's going on now, it's smart on their end to keep them closed until water park demand really opens up again. Plus, as we mentioned, this isn't the season now for them anyways.The waterparks likely aren't big moneymakers for Disney. They would prefer to keep the crowds at their theme parks, which are filled with gift shops and food outlets and appeal to a wider audience.
