PHOTOS: Shark Reef at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Paved Over for Additional Seats and Sand

Shark Reef closed back in 2016 at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon water park with its future very much in doubt. It sat dormant long after the opening of Miss Adventure Falls just a few steps away, but recently walls were erected around the former dive site. The walls have since come down to reveal beach chairs and sand.

Thankfully they decided to keep the upside down boat that was a trademark of the former attraction.

All the way around this giant prop, they have paved over Shark Reef and filled it with sand to add some much needed additional seating. Hopefully this will keep tourists from feeling the need to throw my towel and mug on the floor so that can sit. Yes, that really happens.

There’s also a large pile of rocks for some reason.

I don’t know about you, but there are times when planning a Disney vacation can be overwhelming! There are so many options, where to stay, when to go, is this the best price.
