I agree with this. These decisions seem at odds with Merlins pro accommodation strategy as they've effectively taken a lot of value out over night stays. With the park closed an overnight stay is a substantially devalued product. It is typical behaviour however as Merlin have increasingly relied on accommodation for income and have quite bullishly been dismissive of seeing the parks as a substantial draw to their resorts. Whether we have seen the tipping point of this or not is yet to be seen. Since Merlin have been reluctant to talk openly about their RTP performance as of late, we may well have already passed that tipping point, with Merlin wanting to just plow on regardless.
