We payed £169 each to swim with dolphins on an all inclusive day out and have unlimited access to sea world, aquatica and busch gardens which resulted in much more value then our disney tickets. The place was beautiful and very well landscaped. The food was decent and the staff were brilliant. They really did seem to care about the... More

Simply the greatest attraction in Orlando. Even without the dolphin swim it is fantastic. Well worth every penny. Been 3 times.

This was the 2nd time we have been to Discovery Cove, we didn't swim with the Dolphins this time but did everything else, including the new otter enclosure and held some amazing birds in the sanctuary. Nothing compares to the Grand Reef, where you can swim with rays that are 7ft wide, amazing, loved it.

What a great place, very organized. All inclusive prices EXCEPT for dolphin photos, souvenirs. Wetsuits, lockers, sunscreen, breakfast and lunch all provided. Being in the water with a dolphin was on my bucket list so I loved that part. IMPORTANT to keep in mind that the lazy river has various drops of 8 feet deep. not like your typical lazy... More

Perfect place to spend a day relaxing and exploring. Even if you don't book a Dolphin experience the Cove has plenty to offer! Although the Dolphin experience is good, it is not a must :) You can eat endlessly, drink free cocktails and beers, swim with 1000's of fish or just sunbath! Very tropical and all inclusive! The lagoon like... More

Was a great way to spend a relaxing day away from the busy hectic parks and all the madness of Orlando. Access is limited so it's not too crowded. It may not have the slides etc that other water parks have, but my kids (boys aged 10) still thoroughly enjoyed their day here snorkelling in the coral reef, meeting the... More

Thank god! The 70 haters will not be there to spoil our fun. In sept. I will going for my 5th time. The park is beautiful. The amenities and staff are wonderful. The dolphin Experiance is magical! The price is a bargain considering you get a 14 day Seaworld pass. So if u love exotic birds, marine life, sun, sand... More
