Swimming In Disney World

Being a Disney Vacation Club member we have had our opportunities to stay in many of the resorts.  On top of that I stayed at many as a child, and when I met my wife.  After going to Disney World at almost every time of the year we have come to find out that the swimming pools are usable almost anytime of the year.  I can only imagine the bill that Disney spends to keep the pools warm.  On top of the utility they spend a good penny on the other equipment similar to Rheem heat pumps.  I can’t say what the temperature is of the pools, but they are comfortable.  Getting out of the pools during certain times of the year is a different story.

I remember the first time we went as a family to Disney during one of the colder months how my wife and daughter thought I was crazy to say that we were going to be able to go swimming.  Now that my daughter knows Disney World has heated pools she insists on going swimming whenever we are down there.  She gets to flaunt to her friends that she is going swimming during the winter.

Back here in New Jersey she gets mad because we close the pool in September, and don’t open it until roughly June.  This is because I didn’t want to have the expense of gas, or the heater unit.

The Theme Parks Aren’t Water Parks People

Have you ever gone through one of the Disney theme parks to see parents stripping their child / children down to underwear, and letting them run through water?  I have seen this, and find it very inappropriate.  Today we were in the Animal Kingdom park, and at the restroom area near Kali River Rapids witnessed parents disrobing their children down to their underwear, and letting them play in the water sprayers.  Some of us don’t want to see your kids in their skivies. 

People… Go, and pay for admission to one of the water parks.  It is more appropriate to be in a bathing suit at a water park.  Can anyone actually say that they wouldn’t mind a woman, or man in a bikini playing in the water?  I think this would be very alarming, and also inappropriate.  I am not just referring to that specific water sprayer area.  There are other locations that I have witnessed this.  A few others are the water area in Downtown Disney, the water area in Epcot just before World Showcase, and there are others around the world.  Children belong clothed fully when they are out in public.  You can look at it this way… Moms may find it cute for this to happen.  If women played in the water, then Dads would find this cute.  If men played in the water, then women would find that cute.  It is all in the eye of the beholder.

For many reasons Please use swimming pools, or water parks.  Allowing children to swim / play in fountains in the theme parks would be like getting an instant life insurance quote as you walk into a hospital.  Probably great concept, but very wrong.
