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!
