Everything from the time you walk in and have breakfast until you leave at the end of the day is inclusive with your price admission, I mean everything. The Cabana was extra but well worth the additional cost as it gave you private access to the lazy river and was stocked with what ever beverage (beer; wine; water; soda) your... More

I think this is the best park in the world. Amazing food, staff and overall experience!! The aviary and swimming with dolphins is not to be missed. I did the birthday package with the dolphins which is also worth the money. Couldnt fault it!!

We did the dolphin swim and would totally recommend it. The whole day is fun for kids and adults. We enjoyed it as a party of 2 adults. It seems steep for the tickets, but you literally get a free photo, unlimited food, unlimited drink (incl alcohol), sun cream, wet suits, towels and entry to two other parks. It was... More

This is an exceptional day out in beautiful surroundings. As one previous reviewer said the dolphin experience is quite contrived but we felt it had to be and did not detract. The Grand Reef is brilliant and we all loved being able to swim with Rays and touch them! We did the ultimate swim package which is expensive but given... More

We've been to Discovery Cove twice. And, we will return next time we're in Orlando! No crowds, relaxed, and friendly. My wife insists this is THE place to go during an Orlando visit, and she would spend every day here if she could. We arrived in time for breakfast, and stayed through lunch and the afternoon. Can't run out of... More
