We arrived at 7.15am and quickly got our dolphin swim and Sea Venture booked in. (The earlier the better as it tends to storm early afternoon which interrupts the swims)All I can say is WOW what an amazing place, experience and day. Dolphin swim was amazing but Sea Venture was out of this world. When they offer you a camera... More

If you get the ultimate ticket it includes unlimited busch gardens, seaworls and aquatica which has to be the best multi ticket value in orlando. All drinks(inc alcoholic) food and snacks are included. The snorkeling with the fish and manta rays was the highlight for me. Get to the aviery early to make sure the birds are hunry enough to...

I visited with my wife and three kids in August. I know it was peak season but it was expensive. I couldn't find tickets in the UK through all the normal resellers and agents but managed to book online direct on the USA website. My kids wanted the dolphin experience and because my youngest is 10 years old an adult... More

Such a lovely place that makes you feel miles away from the hustle and bustle of the theme parks, even though its only across the road from SeaWorld. They appear to have thought of everything, no real need to take anything with you- suncream ,goggles ( even prescription ones ) towels, all food, snacks and drinks... amazing The dolphin swims...

Love Love Love Discovery Cove!! It truly was a fabulous day! Everyone was super friendly and helpful. The food was good, never had to wait for more than a few minutes to get food, a drink or a snack. Loved swimming with the dolphins and in the coral reef. The lazy river was awesome too! I would go back again... More

A fantastic, all inclusive day out which saw us swim with Marea the dolphin. The breakfast was great and the lunch menu was varied.

One of my most favourite places ever, 1st visit was in 2014 when we did the dolphin swim which was incredible and i was very fortunate that the same dolphin proposed to my soon to be fiancee for me, with all the excitement we didn't get to really visit all parts. Came back in Sept 2015 on the day we... More

To start with, unlike other resorts in Orlando, the car park and lockers are free .... bonus ! If you're heading on hols to Orlando, this place has got to be #1 priority to book - if you can't book through your holiday reps like I did, then book direct, the guys at the end of the phone and on...

My husband and I were nervous about spending so much money on Discovery Cove tickets since we were bringing our 16 month old son and wasn't sure if he'd enjoy it. Well thank goodness we went for it because it was the best day of our trip! You're treated as a VIP from the very start. As other's have stated,... More
