    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!

    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.......

    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.

    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

    SeaVenture is a great way to test the waters before scuba diving. It's a unique experience that must not be missed!

    Melissa Nj · May 14, 2014

    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.

    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.

    Greg Hesp · May 5, 2014
  • Greg H.

    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.

    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

    King · September 24, 2012
  • Aileen

    Such a great place and the otters are so cute!! If your scared of fish beware but it's truly a paradise w/ free beer! From 11-5.30pm

    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.

    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

    Hands down, the best place for an engagement! (Just be careful, she might think the dolphin is proposing to her at first!)

    Chris · April 24, 2012
  • Julieann J.

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