So whats so special about Discovery Cove and why is rated so highly with visitors? There are many reasons but check out my top six below:
It doesn’t feel like a theme park
I enjoyed a quick visit of Discovery Cove a few years ago and the first thing that stuck me was that it felt more like a tropical island than a theme park. They only allow 1300 guests per day so it never feels crowded. To put that in perspective, Disney’s Magic Kingdom has over 50,000 visitors each day! Because of the limited number of tickets available, it is important that you book well in advance if you want to secure a reservation.
It’s All-Inclusive 🍹
Your entrance ticket not only includes unlimited access to all the attractions, but all meals, snacks and drinks are included throughout your stay! So if you fancy lazing in Serenity Bay with a cocktail in hand, while your family snorkels away in the Grand Reef, that is easily done! Incidentally all snorkelling equipment is included too. You don’t even need to worry about suncream, towels or wet suits – they are all provided – they even ensure the sun cream is animal friendly 🐬.
You can swim with dolphins
This will certainly be the highlight of your child’s (and maybe the adults too) trip to Orlando, and an experience they will never forget. Once you pre purchase the dolphin swim package (the offer mentioned above includes this), you will enjoy a 30 minute dolphin swim and interaction in the Dolphin Lagoon. Beforehand you will meet Discovery Cove’s expert dolphin trainers where they will brief you on safety and encourage you to ask questions about the experience. Note children ages 6-12 must be accompanied by a paying adult who also is participating in the dolphin swim experience.
You can spend the day there
Contrary to what you might think, many people spend the whole day at Discovery Cove. It opens from 8am – 5.30pm and is a the perfect place to relax and escape the hustle and bustle of Orlando. With the all-inclusive arrangement you could actually have breakfast, lunch and dinner if you wanted to!
Ride the soothing currents at Wind-Away-River – an immersive ride that brings you past sandy beaches, a rain forest, waterfalls, and through an underwater cave. Swim and snorkel with thousands of tropical fish at the Grand Reef and interact with otters and marmosets in the Freshwater Oasis. If you want a break away from the water, the Explorers Aviary has hundreds of tropical birds, many of which will swoop down and take fruit from your hand. All of these experiences are included in the cost of your ticket. And when you have tried all the activities available, simply relax with a cocktail in Serenity Bay – you can even book a day bed or private cabana.
You can take an underwater walking tour:
If you are planning on spending the day at Discovery Cove, why not add on SeaVenture, an innovative experience that allows you to interact with schools of tropical fish while wearing a dive helmet. You can save over 40% on the ticket price if you book with Attraction Tickets Direct before the end of February. This amazing experience is now only €19 in low season and €28 in high season. There are many other add-on experiences available, such as the Animal Trek, become a trainer for the day, sting-ray feeding and swimming with sharks.
If you buy the Discovery Cove Ultimate Package you receive 14 days unlimited access to SeaWorld, Aquatica and Busch Gardens.
