    Okay, my family is going to Disney World in 12 days and my sister isn't sure if she wants to do the shark reef yet. Well she wants to know if you get a life vest, how deep the water is, and how far do you have to swim to get to the other side? SHe is just so confused!:confused3

    I've done it before. You get a life vest. Water isn't that deep. You swim maybe 30 feet or so.

    My only complaint is the water is cold. REALLY cold.

    My. Lips. Were. Blue.


    :p So yes. It was that cold! Think about taking a bathtub and filling it with only ice, then fill with the coldest water possible, sit in that. Its colder tham that.

    Yeah it's pretty cold.

    and MAKE SURE YOU KEEP YOUR SNORKEL THING ABOUT THE WATER!!!

    because my sister didnt and she got salt water in her mouth and choked.
    so DONT try and go under.



    im REALLY REALLY REALLY (x 1293082) scared of fish and sharks and sting rays and stuff.
    but i did it, it's not TOO bad, i was terrified getting in, but as i went along it was okay.

    it's fun. it's definitley a cool expirience, you can tell you're sister that.

    I did this when I was really little. That 60 feet you swim across goes by very fast (tho, I didn't get all the way across - lol long story). The water is, as everyone says, bitterly cold. But don't think about that lol. Also remember that nothing in there is out to hurt you. You would not be allowed to swim in anything that had harmful animals in it. Disney is very good about that. Plus, there are lifegaurds there and CMs in the water.

    Oh, ok they are just leopard sharks? Last year we were on our yearly disney cruise and in cozumel we went snorkeling. I love the water and fish and everything (i want to be a marinebiologist). It was sad b/c a little earlier in the year it was devestated by a hurricane, so the water had like pieces of house stuff in it. Well back to the story. The sky started to turn dark and the water was getting choppy.(i am thinking ok. something isn't right) well then the tour guide(some mexican dude who was like oh i am not mexican i am eduardian or something) was like everyone please slowly move back to the boat. Well if you look down there were just a couple of sharks down there. Well haha that just makes you want to smile! not. Nobody on the little boat wanted to do anymore snorkeling after that. He said that the sharks have been out towards the coastline ever since the hurricane. Yeah I am afraid of sharks just a bit now. but I am better now. Ok that was really OT.
