This place is amazing, from the minute you arrive, only letting in 1000 people a day means no queues to park or get in, beautiful surroundings and some amazing plants and animals to see. All food is included so get there for opening to enjoy breakfast, there is only 1 restaurant but plenty of seating. Towels, sun cream, wet suits,... More

Amazing as the first, truly a remarkable day. Loved the upgrades which have been made over the past several years such as the otters and marmosets. Food was outstanding and plentiful and all day ice cream snacks were a hit with everyone in our party. We stayed until closing. We will definitely be back for a third visit. Two minor... More

We went to DC today (April 8, 2015)!! It was great... When you arrive, they take a complimentary group photo. They also take your picture to use for a lanyard which has your dolphin swim time on it. If you are undecided about doing the dolphin swim, do it! It was amazing to be so near a magnificent sea creature... More

Swimming with dolphins was on the whole family's bucket list and we therefore booked a day here. It was expensive but we definitely feel it was worth it. We had an amazing day. We met the dolphins early and really enjoyed it. The pictures were great. The rest of the day we enjoyed snorkeling, swimming, looking at birds and resting... More

At this park, I went swimming with stingrays and other fish. I also did the dolphin encounter. The water for both these activities is kinda of cold, but you can get used to it. The other water areas are very warm. One of things I liked best about it is that they made the ponds and rivers to appear natural... More

Beautiful setting as if you're in a tropical resort. Only a specific amount of guests registered allowed so never crowded. Water is warm and inviting. Breakfast and lunch and all drinks and snacks included. Price scares you at start but the value you'll definitely see if you if you price it all separately. Really well worth it or I wouldn't...

This was our second visit to Discovery Cove, and I'm glad to say their standards have not slipped. It is an oasis of calm from all the madness of the other parks, and I urge everyone to try it whilst visiting Orlando. Places are limited so you must book in advance, and this is the big plus even when the... More

We were a bit hesitant due to the price but decided to try as this was all inclusive and felt better booking the extra dolphin swim here rather than on upcoming cruise. This place knocked our socks off! Best money spent and favorite of my entire Florida and Western Carribean cruise vacation. No question. It surpassed any expectation. We enjoyed... More

I loved my time at Discovery. It is an all expenses paid resort style park . You can swim with sting rays, dolphins, go snorkeling in a coral reef and lounge by the beach. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there and ate plenty! Beverages (including beer) are included too! I noticed the prices went up quite a bit. I went... More
