What can I say, some words spring to mind, superb, wonderful, memorable..... We were a family of 4 with 2 teenage kids, when we booked from the UK we breathed deeply at the price to include a Dolphin Swim but it was worth every penny, the best thing in Orlando by far, its crowd free a beautiful setting, the Dolphin...

My day at Discovery Cove will be a day I never forget for the rest of my life. The animals are beautiful. Myself and my wife visited and swam with the Dolphins! Her name is Dixie and she is beautiful. If you go see the birds first thing in the morning because you can feed them. They will land on... More

This place is a piece of heaven put on earth. Orlando maybe famous for Disney and Universal parks but Discovery Cove should win the prize of the ultimate destination in Orlando. Tickets seem a bit expensive at first but if you notice the all inclusive day resort with full breakfast and lunch, free unlimited drinks and snacks plus tickets to... More

This was an amazing part of our trip! We did this on Christmas Eve and the weather was perfect. While it is expensive, my husband and I felt like the expense was well worth all the things that were included, meals, snacks, equipment, drinks and facilities. My son LOVES stingrays and was overjoyed to see them swimming up to him... More

First off, Discovery Cove isn't a cheap day, even when compared to the other parks in the Orlando area. At about $350/person in the high season, including the dolphin swim, it's actually pretty darn expensive. On the plus side, you don't have to pay for anything else, unless you want to hit the gift shops or get photos beyond the... More

Absolutely fantastic - snorkelling among lovely tropical fish including stingrays ...and sharks. However what stole the show was the dolphin experience. We simply loved it!

This is a great break from the hustle and bustle of the other parks as only a limited number of people are allowed in each day. The obvious high-light is swimming with dolphins (if you've booked it). The Grand Reef is an incredible place, letting you swim alongside numerous fish and you can get up real close with the rays... More

Really a fun experience, so so expensive through! All you can eat and drink, and all of the amazing animals and areas make for a great day! Get there early! Bring your own waterproof camera for the areas other than the dolphins, photos are horrendously expensive. There is a lot more to the park then just the dolphins! Reef and... More

This exceeded my expectations and worth every penny. Yes the cost is initially traumatizing. But, after all we did and all it came with, I walked away feeling good about it. The only con I have for the whole experience is the photo package with the dolphins, if you want memories of that you can spend upwards of $250 to... More
