I have always wondered why Disney decided to close the Discovery River Boats in Animal Kingdom. It seemed like it would be an enjoyable relaxing ride and could just "be there." It like why not have something that is simple and easy to operate that will keep a guest occupied for a half hour? It could also have transported guests around the park like the Epcot FriendShip Boats from one side of World Showcase Lagoon to the other.
Was it because guests found it boring? Did it ruin the ecosystem of the river? Just wondering. Also why did IOA get ride of its boats?
