Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach: "Theme parks" or Water parks?

WDW Parks General Discussion | WDWMAGIC - Unofficial Walt Disney World discussion forums - forums.wdwmagic.com
This may sound like a really stupid question, and it probably is. Recently I have been seeing commercials online and on television advertising Universal Orlando, saying "3 theme parks". I checked their website and it turns out they consider the new Volcano water park to actually be a theme park just the same as Studios and Islands of Adventure.

My question is, if a water park is highly themed with detail and guest immersion, should it be considered a theme park? Will Disney ever consider Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach to be theme parks, and increase their park count to 6, as Universal now claims 3 with the inclusion of Volcano Bay? After watching a recent video of Miss Adventure Falls at Typhoon, it looks to have the detail, animatronic factor, and atmosphere to add to the already immersive theme of the park. Will it get the upgrade from water to theme park some year? Sorry if this all sounds confusing. I'm probably making a mountain out of a mole hill, but just found it curious. Maybe it has more to do with park size which labels one as a theme and one as a water park.
