Need a venue for the whole family that is active and engaging without the crowds? Discovery Cove is the place. You will need reservations and plan to spend the day in "paradise." Look it up online and search for discounts and coupons. There are many out there. Enjoy and plan to get wet.

This was the most amazing experience for my family and myself. I would go again. The animals are amazing! The staff is just so amazing. Word cannot explain our experience. I cannot wait to go again! Everything is included in the price except pictures and souvenirs.

Of course we came to see the famous mouse but no trip to orlando is complete without some water fun. Make sure you take a day to enjoy discovery cove. My teens absolutely love this place and so do us older folks.

This is an all-inclusive (with the exception of a few special activities) resort; the idea of not having to worry about spending money on parking, food and drinks was liberating and allowed me to completely immerse myself in the experience with my wife and family. It is awesome to snorkel with exotic marine life (although it would have been better... More

We chose Discovery Cove to celebrate our daughter's birthday and gift her with a dolphin swim. This was absolutely worth the money we spent. You receive an all inclusive resort experience along with options for tickets to SeaWorld and Aquatica. Best bang for your buck! I would recommend if you are doing the dolphin swim that you rent a cabana... More

One of the most memorable experiences we had in the area. The all inclusive price was high...but we got our money's worth with meals, drinks and snacks. Do not miss the Avery and lazy river and the pool in the lazy river area that has underwater benches you can sit on and have a drink...really neat. Great place for novice... More

Our family had so much fun! Definitely plan to spend the entire day here. We left very close to closing time. From beginning to end we were treated with kindness and everyone was helpful. The dolphin swim was fantastic! We learned so much about the animals and loved touching her and the dolphin ride. My favorite part was swimming with... More
