Shark Reef Attraction at Walt Disney World Set to Close

Shark Reef at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon will be closing permanently on October 2nd, 2016.  This attraction is one of the most unique on property in that guests are able to snorkel across a sunken wreckage area where you swim with stingrays and sharks.  The water is kept at colder temperatures in order to accommodate the comfort of the animals inhabiting the area.  While this attraction may be closing, a family raft ride will be added to the park in 2017.  We will keep you posted on the development of this new attraction!

I am a long time Disney addict! This love began as a child and stayed with me in my teen years. I completed the Disney College Program, was engaged and honeymooned at Disney, visited WDW while pregnant with each of our two boys, and have brought our boys since they were babies (they are now 5 and 2).
