National Geographic’s SharkFest Returns to Disney Parks with Photo Ops and Fun!

Disney Parks is making a splash with new limited-time photo opportunities at EPCOT and Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort and at Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel at Disneyland Resort. We’re also serving up some backyard fun at the Disney Hotels and Resorts on both coasts and it is all in celebration of National Geographic’s SharkFest.

National Geographic celebrates 10 years of SharkFest – and this summer they’re bringing the toothiest and truthiest shark content with the most immersive and massive programming experience to date. The only shark event that proves truth is stranger than fiction will take viewers up close and personal with one of nature’s most feared predators as it swims across more Disney platforms than ever before.

Guests staying at one of the Hotels of the Disneyland Resort can surf on over to Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel pool where they will have access to an incredible ground mural featuring the King of all Sharks, The Great White. Check out the time-lapse video of its creation below:

Guests in Florida can head over to EPCOT’s World Nature where just outside the exit to The Seas with Nemo & Friends they can get their photo with a life-size version of the National Geographic Yellow Border. At Disney Springs, they can even size themselves against a Great White shark at the photo wall on the Northwest side of Disney’s Days of Christmas store.

Guests staying at any of the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels or the Hotels of the Disneyland Resort might just spot a special SharkFest game of cornhole, where they can challenge their fellow shark enthusiasts.

These limited-time activities will swim away in just a few weeks.

At home, guests can dive into 30 hours of original SharkFest programming and over 60 hours of enhanced content featuring captivating science and stunning visuals of the iconic apex predator. SharkFest not only shines a light on the science of sharks, giving audiences a better understanding of the ocean’s most misunderstood predator, but also features their true beauty, power, and mystery.
