I don't think that they would close either AK or MK
why the heck would they close Animal Kingdom??? They just added EE!

If I go crazy, will you still call me superman?
what would be any reason for them to close Animal Kingdom. I've only been their once, and it was amazing
I read on the actual Disney webpage a few years back that River Country closed because of a lack of guest attendance. With both Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach in full swing, fewer and fewer people were going to River Country. I don't remember word for word what the announcement on the page said, but it was something along the lines of "...River Country has been closed and will remain closed unless attendance at both Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach water parks exceed their maximum capacity for [such and such length of time]." It was like 3 years ago that I read that, and considering it hasn't reopened yet, it's safe to say it wont be reopening.
Most folks don't go to Disney for the water parks, and even if they do plan a water park day into their vacation, it's usually no more than one or two days. I agree that there really isn't a need for three water parks at WDW, but I don't think that RC should have been the one to close. The other two are neat and all, but RC was so much different in terms of the style of the park. I really liked the whole laid back swimmin' hole kind of feel, rather than the "go stand in line for hours to get on every gigantic slide in the park" thing. It was my personal favorite of the three. But I suppose that being the oldest of the bunch, and the one with the least number of slides and those kinds of amusements, I could understand it being the least populated on most days (which i thought was another advantage... but oh well).

Close MK? Probably never, but if they chose to close AK I would throw a party. My fantasy is for the San Diego Zoo to take over AK and make the whole area a world class zoo. I would love a great, world class zoo on this quadrant of the country and since the Jim Fowler park in Bonifay has fallen thru, I guess I'm back to dreaming that the San Diego Zoo would make a leap into the deep South. That's is what wishes are for, so there's mine.
Disney will never close one of their main parks, too much money has already bee invested in them. (Especially at AK where you to take animal care costs into it as well). Their waterparks are more likely to close because they are smaller and not as many people go to Blizzard Beach as much as say MK, but that's just a guess.

If MK would close - I´ll loose the best possible way to re-live my childhood memories or pass them on to my own children. I agree with all of you that this was a silly statement without valid source to back it up.
