    If you're considering getting a photo package of your time at discovery cove, know before you go. Always lookout for photographers & get as many pics as possible to make your purchase worthwhile. $150

    Wonderful and relaxing paradise. Swimming with stingrays, relaxing at the beach and nice food. All included in the price. For a few extra bucks do the SeaTrek adventure. Super fun!

    Excellent resort. Make sure if a photographer takes your picture that they take a picture of your Discovery Cove ID! Good food. Great service. Awesome lazy river. Love the dolphin encounter.

    Second time here and still a fantastic experience. This time it was noticeable that the restaurant staff were not friendly or happy. Life guards nice still. Food wasn't brilliant. Scuba was great.

    Make sure you get the photographers to take pictures of you, they don't ask you as don't want to interrupt. If you get the dolphin photo CD then all photos taken throughout the day are included.

    Swimming with dolphin is awesome! Snorkeling with tropical fishes and rays is amazing! It's so relaxing when floating along the river and lying on the beach chair! What a wonderful day!!!

    This was by far the best park that I've experienced. Treated as valued, staff all over were pleasant and helpful. They clearly understand and practice customer focus.

    Water cameras aren't allowed during the dolphin swim. Schedule 2 sets of swims at different times so that someone can trade off in taking pics & save you approx. $150 on the low end for a cd of pics.

    The best park in Orlando. Expensive? Yes. But all day free of food and drinks. Bird feed by yourself is cool. Swimming with the dolphins great.......

    All inclusive including breakfast, lunch and snacks all day long including alcoolholic beverage is the deal. A bit expensive if you include swim with a dolfin. It's a premium park and you pay for that

    Don't forget to check the animal care tent schedule at the start of the day. They might have a sloth, or monkeys with them you can see.

    For a more secluded experience book a cabana. Cabanas can be booked on the day or 6 weeks before. They do sell out quick.

    When you're with à group and are Taking The 'swim' with The Dolphins. Split up so somebody can take pics, film it while your in the water. The pics and film made by Discovery Cove are way to expensive

    Feed the birds before you do anything else. They are ready to eat first thing in the morning, but couldn't care for food later in the afternoon.

    Лучшее,что есть в Орландо.Не уверен,что вообще где-то есть аналоги. коралловый риф со всей фауной,и ты с маской плаваешь между скатами и рыбами-клоунами.Еда-блевота,зато входит в цену)Но вообще-бомба!

    Lugar muito bonito. Nadar com os golfinhos foi uma experiência inesquecível. A comida americana é correta, mas pela categoria e preço do ingresso deveria ser padrão internacional. Imperdível parque.
