Had a wonderful time, my kids loved swimming with the dolphin, everyone was very nice and helpful. The food was great. I would highly recommend it. By booking directly with them you also get entrance to Sea World and Aquatica. If upgrade to Bush Gardens you will also get free parking to all the parks. Can't wait to visit again.

Where to begin? We purchased "Trainer for a Day" that provides two swims with the dolphins, exploration in the "reef" and a behind the scenes look at what the trainers do, from how they figure out how much to feed the animals to exclusive opportunities to feed them ourselves. Our party spanned a 73 year old grandfather to a 10... More

If you haven't heard of Discovery Cove you are in for a treat. It's essentially an all inclusive beach resort without the overnight stay. Plus, you get to swim all kinds of tropical fish and stingrays. There a two seperate meal times, but you are able to get unlimited snacks and drinks inbetween. There are several swimming areas so you... More

What an amazing escape from the craziness that is Orlando. I literally felt like I was in a resort, surrounded by palm trees, lush gardens and water. We swam with stingrays & dolphins, watched otters & marmosets have fun playing and fed birds in the aviary. The staff were awesome (especially when they brought animals out to tell us all... More

This was booked for my 50th birthday, an item off my bucket list. Expensive but well worth it, the experience with the dolphins is excellent and swimming with all the other fish. The resort is lovely and relaxing, limited number entry so plenty of room and loungers. You only do this kind of thing once so well worth the money

Discovery Cove was an amazing day from start to finish. You begin with a breakfast buffet (eggs, bacon, cereal, muffins, fresh fruit, French toast sticks) as early as 7:15a...however we arrived at 7:15a and probably wouldn't come until 7:45a next time as the exhibits don't open until 9am. After breakfast, you are sent to get a locker assignment and a... More
