Shark Reef, a unique experience at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon water park, will be closed effective October 3, 2016. This move is part of the park’s continued growth and expansion.
Recently Disney announced that it would build a new water attraction called Miss Fortune Falls, a white-water, family-friendly adventure.
Shark Reef allowed Guests to don fins, mask, snorkel and a life vest before snorkeling in the an extremely cold saltwater pool that was home to fish, rays, and very small sharks. Those who didn’t want to swim could still see the fish through a underwater glass viewing window.
The animals currently found in Shark Reef will be relocated to other places around the Walt Disney World Resort.
