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!

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
