Absolutely loved this park. Swam with the dolphins, snorkelled with the fish. So relaxing. Quite expensive but definitely worth it. Unfortuately it rained quite a bit, dolphin swim was delayed for an hour. We eventually left early due to the rain but for a family memory would definitely recommend it. Go early so you can book your swim earlier in the day.

Three generations of our family loved it. The grandchildren loved swimming with the dolphins. Everything inclusive - something for everyone.

This was by far our best day out. Very well organised and with limited numbers Discovery Cove exceeded our expectations. Our 11 year old son happily spent hours snorkeling in the reef and swimming with the dolphin was the highlight of the day. Be prepared to queue for lunch.

Would definately recommend Discovery Cove for a great day out, the fact that they only let a certain amount of people in per day meant it was not crowded like the major theme parks. We arrived at 7 am, were greeted by friendly staff who explained everything that the day entailed, had our swimming experience with the dolphins first thing and then had a lovely breakfast, spent the whole day chilling and swimming in the different pools, there was a good choice of food for lunch and the snacks were great, staff attentive, overall a fantastic experience for my birthday.

We arrived at about 6:45am as previous reviews suggested getting in the line early to book an early dolphin swim. By 7:15am the line was very long. We managed to get a swim at 8am which was great as it was quite a bit cooler in the morning. We met two dolphins which was amazing- calypso and dexter! The experience will be remembered for a very long time!
Food, drinks and snacks including alcohol free whenever you fancy eating or drinking.
We snorkelled with rays and tropical fish- one ray called Bianca actually measures 5 and a half feet- a bit scary at first but snorkelling with the tropical fish was amazing!
This is one thing in Orlando you must do- our best visit of the holiday!
