He wasn't wrong this was our third visit and its a brilliant day out away from the parks. Food this time was the only let down, breakfast was more continental than in the past which was okay. Lunch was also not as nice as previous visits, but again okay. This will not ruin your day by any means, but after... More

If you are against this sort of thing dont go. But we have been many times and its fantastic. We have taken two disabled children in the past and the excitment, joy and precious moments are fantastic to see, Might seem a little expensive but for what you get it is worth every penny or $ THANK YOU SEAWORLD

I've found with most theme park reviews that they are polarised with euphoria and gross disappointment usually involving some stray kids falling off a roller coaster or people balking about the price etc.. Well for Discovery cove I'll try to keep a cool head and describe what we saw and to be fair enjoyed, I can't speak for the rest... More

Three adults spent the day here, and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. My husband is not a swimmer, so he was thrilled to spend his day lounging and napping in deck chairs and a hammock while two of us floated down the lazy river on "noodles" and later snorkled with fish and stingrays. Snorkle gear is provided as are life... More

A genuinely fabulous day out which will live long in the memory. Our seven year old absolutely loved the Dolphin swim, snorkelling with the assorted fish including the huge stingray but especially feeding / interacting with the exotic birds. The fact that it is all inclusive with breakfast, lunch and snacks makes it even more attractive depending of course on... More

a truly exceptional place, ignoring the main event for the moment, the bird sanctuary was so amazing and unlike nearly everywhere else i've been its completely free to feed the birds as many times as you want :) the real challenge is finding a bird interested in actually eating the food you have! many different types of birds all beautiful...

We got up early for this adventure, as we read some of the reviews on trip advisor regarding the dolphin swim. It is true we were the second family in there and we got the 9.25 slot, this was perfect as come the afternoon the place was at maximum capacity and some family's could not do this amazing experience. The... More

Where do I start. The hospitality of the staff, to the dolphin interaction, the coral reef snorkel, lazy river, and endless food, snacks and drinks. All great !!! If you are looking or thinking about going, please do. The whole family loved it.

This really should be top of your list of places to visit in Orlando. Although it looks pricey remember that all your food and drinks (including alcoholic drinks) are free throughout the day but for us the experience alone makes the price worthwhile. The dolphin swim experience is great although can take a certain amount of bravery for younger children!... More
