For many people, a visit to Disney World is a magical experience full of fun and wonder. However, one thing that can quickly ruin that experience is being thirsty. Disney sells bottled water, however, it’s overpriced, and Dasani. Also, there is an environmental impact of single-use plastic bottles. Now, Disney World is taking steps to address this issue by installing water purifiers on its rides so that guests can drink the water.
The move to install water purifiers on rides is a bold one, and many people are talking about it. Some praise Disney World for its commitment to providing guests access to clean drinking water, while others are skeptical of the idea. We’ll take a closer look at why Disney is doing this. We will also explore the potential benefits and drawbacks of this new addition to their water rides.
Benefits and Drawbacks of The New On-Ride Purification System
According to a recent press release, Disney World is installing water purification systems on several of its rides, including Pirates of the Caribbean, it’s a small world (despite it becoming a walk-through attraction), and soon-to-be Tiana’s Bayou Adventure. These systems will filter the water used on the ride, making it safe for guests to drink. Guests will be able to fill their own reusable water bottles or cups directly from the ride’s water, while on the ride! Just be careful so you don’t lose your hands on the ride like the man on Space Mountain we reported on here.
The benefits of this move are clear. It will provide guests with access to clean drinking water without purchasing single-use plastic bottles. This will save guests money and will reduce the amount of plastic waste generated by the park. This is atypical for Disney. Usually, they want to make as much money as they can, which is why they filed for a mind-controlling patent. Additionally, the use of water purifiers will reduce the park’s overall water usage.
While the benefits of this move are clear, there are also some serious potential drawbacks. For example, there is a risk that guests could get sick from drinking the water. Disney stated that the water purification systems are state-of-the-art and will provide guests with safe, clean water. However, there is always a possibility that something could go wrong. Additionally, the wait times for the water rides may increase because of this. Some guests may get in line for these rides just to fill their water bottles for free.
Additional Details on Disney’s New Ride Water Purifiers
There is no official announcement as to when these water purifiers will be installed. We expect these systems to be installed in the next few weeks. According to an internal source, the purifiers are built and ready for installation. They noted however that these systems will need to go through rigorous testing before guest use.
According to our source, Disney will be able to install the water purifiers on their rides overnight. These will not cause the rides to close. However, once they are installed, Disney will spend weeks testing the water before they announce that guests can use it. This is to ensure the water is truly being purified and is safe for guests to drink.
Overall, the move to install water purifiers on rides at Disney World is an interesting one. It can provide guests with access to clean drinking water while reducing the amount of plastic waste generated by the park. However, there are some serious potential drawbacks to consider. Only time will tell whether this new approach will be successful, but it is certainly an innovative move on Disney’s part.
