  1. I just went, had never snorkeled before, and absolutely loved it. I made sure to do it each time we went there. I liked it so much that I plan to make snorkeling something I do as often as I can. It would be a shame to replace it with a boring old raft ride. It’s the reason it is my favourite water park, Disney or otherwise.

  2. 🙁 that was our favorite part of that park! Every year After experiencing it and when we would try to go to the park was under refurbishment or it was closed for filming for something, so sad.
