some kids started crying wen I went there 2 years ago - luca ferracuti

I love that it has a free preview version for everyone and then the option to pay for a longer, more extensive version. - Carrie Lindsey

I will give Shark Reef a 10/10, due to it's snorkeling with sharks/tropical fish/rays and that's pretty cool to be able to do at a Disney water park. However, I am not the greatest of swimmers (wore a floating vest) and have never snorkeled before (was very uncomfortable with the mask/breathing). It was fine until I moved my mouthpiece real quick, but got some saltwater in it, breathed it in, then somehow got water to go into my mask/nose, freaked out for a good 5 seconds. It's safe as can be, especially with a floating vest on, but just a bit new to me. Looking down 10-11 feet deep is pretty amazing though and saw some hammerhead sharks which was awesome. - Nick Dakuginow
