Big Change to Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Wave Pool

Typhoon Lagoon has permanently lowered the surf wave several feet to discourage all forms of body surfing. Guests have been enjoying body surfing since opening day June 1st 1989, but now it's deemed unsafe after 23 years. If you're not happy with it please let them know at : wdw.guest.communications@disneyworld.com

What's the point then, just remove the wave machine and make it a big stupid pool.

Just when I think Disney can't make any more insane decisions..... Sigh, just sigh.
