We have been to Discovery Cove a couple times and love it. For a family of six, it is expensive, but worth the money in comparison to most large parks. They only allow 300 people in a day to make a more pleasurable time for...More

The $250 price per person is a little crazy UNLESS you go to Sea World and Aquatica which is included with your Discovery ticket. The best part was the warm floating Wind-away river. I do not like cold water and it was nice and toasty....More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Is there anyway we can by a ticket just to one park. The only tickets I have found are £175 each in August and give you access to Discovery Cove, Seaworld and Aquatica. I really don't want to do more than one park.
