This is truly a serene tropical retreat! Everyone should experience the dolphin swim at least once! There is an option for non dolphin swim, which cuts down the price significantly. Breakfast, lunch, all snacks and drinks are included all day. You also receive a complimentary photo. Discovery cove can be a little costly but for what you get it is... More

We had a fantastic experience here - myself, husband and 2 teenage sons. Staff very courteous. The animal handlers were very knowledgeable and more than willing to answer any questions you had about any of the animals. The dolphin encounter was great. It went by much too quickly. Snorkeling on the Grand Reef was a bit intimidating at first but... More

All-inclusive day in a utopian location. Meals for the entire day are included in the price. The price for Florida residents is reasonable but I don't think so for those who don't reside in Florida. Guests can eat as many times as they wish. The only downside is that you must arrive by 9 a.m. and leave by 5 p.m.... More

I can't recommend Discovery Cove enough. We had the time of our lives and will definitely be returning the next time we are in Orlando. The dolphin swim is something I think everybody should experience in their lifetime. Also, don't be thrown off by the price, it is well worth every penny. Once you include the fact that all meals...

We went here on honeymoon and did the dolphin experience. BEST THING EVER !!!!!!!!!!!!! We got to cuddle, kiss and be towed by 2 dolphins. It was fantastic. The lazy river is also great fun as you bob along in the warm water and under waterfalls. The reef was great for snorkelling, although the rays did catch us out at... More

Really good value if you are able to use the free Seaworld pass. Very relaxing away from the crowds. My teenagers played hard and ate well all day! We spent the whole day there, right to the last minute.

I wanted to splurge and do something nice for my birthday, so I convinced my husband that a visit with the dolphins would be perfect. We arrived at 8:30 and were given the 9:10 dolphin encounter... It was perfect. The entire experience was so relaxed. The employees were so friendly and helpful. There was never a rush and there was... More

We visited on one of our last days in Orlando and after a hectic week of theme parks, it was a great relaxing day. You have to do the dolphin swim as it makes the day. All inclusive food and drink were great but I took the car so would recommend you get the ihop. All in all a perfect... More

The moment I walked into Discovery Cove I got excited, which is a big deal for me since I rarely do. The service is fantastic and the staff is very accommodating and helpful. While the sticker price is scary (sometimes $300 per person) all food and drinks are included, and the dolphin swim is something most people never get to... More
