What a lovely surprise. Sandy beach, Palm trees, Hula, Hula girls, Dolphins, animals birds, you can touch. Great food, live music, warm weather under the grass canopies. Wonderful. Join in the beach games and dancing later on the sand.

This place is absolutely fabulous! We already planning to come back in the future. It is different from all other attractions in Orlando and for the first time I've been here, to the parks (and I been for 10 times) I felt marvelous. In the price of the ticket we had breakfast and lunch, snacks, free beverage. When I booked,... More

This is the best! Swimming with manta rays, dolphins, hammerhead sharks and sooooo many fish. Great lunch included - a gourmet meal really! Nice gift shop. Nice beach. Great great day!! Worth the $$.

Family of 4 (12 and 16) went last. 16 yo did sea venture while 12 yo did dolphin experience. Worked out best for each. 16 yo spent hours in aviary. Off season and off attendance (approx 200 of 1400 capacity) meant no crowds, no waits, plenty of attention from birds and hand feeding, and no trouble getting timing for fixed... More

My free day in Orlando before a business conference. What to do? I liked the reviews but the price seemed very high. I asked the hotel staff and bar staff at dinner. None of them mentioned Discovery Cove. 2 beers later and I booked on-line. I just bought the resort pass. I've done dolphin experiences before in a park and... More

This was our first ever visit to Discovery Cove and my only regret is not having visited before. The park is amazing. I needed to stay in touch with home as a relative was having major surgery the day we went (we needed to change our date due to weather issues), however I had such a fabulous day watching everyone...

Well the excellent rating would suggest yes of course however being totally honest the jury is still out! All in all, for a family of two adults and two children aged 6 and 8, this experience, including the Dolphin interaction, set us back £1000 (GBP). If you are in Orlando for 2 weeks however you can really make that £1000... More

We weren't sure if we were going to visit Discovery Cove as it is fairly pricey however I am so glad we did. Had a fantastic day swimming, snorkeling with the fish and sharks and in the bird aviary. Highlight being our allocated time with the dolphins. Highly recommended and one of my highlights of the holiday!
