I visited this park with my girlfriend and had an amazing time from start to finish. I recommend arriving as early as possible as it is first come, first served when booking your dolphin swim time slot. The breakfast was good and then it was off to get our wet suits and snorkelling gear all of which is included in... More

From the moment you walk in, you feel like your at a resort. Excellent very friendly helpful staff, always asking if you need anything. We went mid- march and expected it to be full with Spring Break. It was the opposite, plenty of chairs, sand and room everywhere. ( they only allow a certain amount of people in) The park... More

Visited Aquatica as part off Discovery Cove package which I thought was very good, so my expectations for this park was to supersede that of Aquatica., due to the expense £ 460 for a family of four. Well not any good for the under fives, probably even older, food was poor,, service was very very slow, canteen like with a... More

The day started with a delicious breakfast. Then getting your wetsuit and snorkeling gear. Then off to the Grand Reef. The dolphin swim is something I would recommend. The only thing I would change is to make it more of a learning experience

We did the trainer for the day program. Our guide Kim was outstanding and really exhibited great pride in the park and definitely had a love for working with dolphins. This is a costly adventure, but the extended dolphin interaction was a major success with my 11-13 yro boys. Getting behind the scenes opened up their eyes to the level... More

Check-in process was efficient, staff was friendly and helpful, and facilities were wonderful. We opted for the dolphin experience and were not disappointed. Food, drink, and snacks were well done and plentiful. Our day started out a bit cold, so we arrived around 10am and we regret not arriving earlier to enjoy breakfast and to see the non-aquatic attractions. While... More

Wow! This place was amazing! What a fantastic way to end our holiday, swimming with dolphins and relaxing in the lazy river through the caves. All food and drinks are included throughout the whole day. My favourite day out of the 2 weeks holiday. Would highly recommend going here and I certainly will be returning when next in Orlando!

I have been to all the other parks (Disney, Universal...etc) This park by far is the best due to the experience you receive due to the all inclusive of food, drinks including alcohol, free use of snorkel gear, wet suits when its colder, towels are in an abundance as well as places to sit, free locker rental. Sea World and... More
