We went Jan. 23rd and loved it. We arrived at 630am and had to wait outside the door. We got a 830 dolphin swim. Our family enjoyed this the best. Our instructor was great got to pet the dolphin many of times, pictures, kiss and ride. Thought that 30 min. was plenty of time. The whole park was a island... More

It has to be the ultimate adventure. It is like signing into a 5***** hotel. Our grandchildren voted it the best park of the holiday.

yes its more of a water park than actual theme park but it is fantastic. I highly recommend going just to go. The dolphin experience is very nice but I love the snorkeling, then relaxing river, and the aviary. I mean all the food and all the drinks are all included, meaning no money exchange what so ever.

This is a must visit place in Orlando. There are three areas: freshwater lazy river, dolphin swim and saltwater reef. The landscaping is amazing. Makes you feel like you're on a tropical island. We did the reef first. They provide (all for free) wet suits (or vests), life vests (if you want them), mask with snorkel, pool noodles, beach towels,... More

Enjoyed spending the day with my husband and teenage son. We swam, interacted with the rays, enjoyed not being over crowded, and was very relaxing. We rented a cabana, and it was in a secluded spot(cost associated with this, and you can book in advance). Glad we did this since the day we ere there is was Very Hot! We... More
