Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chill out day Discovery cove is great, enjoy the park at your own pace, limited amount of people in the park every day. The lazy river, grand reef and food are all good, wouldn't bother spending extra on swim however I've done it before. Didn't think much of the new otter attraction there. Good value for money if you get sea world, Busch gardens and aquatica admission as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best experience in orlando I went to discovery cove with my husband and our two teenage daughters. We chose the non dolphin swim option. You still get to see the Dolphins very close while groups of eight people have "swim with dolphin" experiences. The most memorable part of the park is snorkelling with sting rays and hundreds of other fish in a realistic reef. Because only a limited number of guests each day it is really relaxing. The inclusive breakfast , lunch and drinks and snacks are good quality. The unlimited access to aquatica and sea world for 2 weeks makes this park good value for money. Our favourite day in Orlando. Personally don't think the extra cost for dolphin swim is worth the extra cost unless you are dolphin mad because you don't get very long with the dolphin but it is a personal choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful day out Got there in good time to check in and get an early dolphin experience, with included breakfast beforehand. Spent a full ten hour day there. Calm and relaxed and while dolphin time is limited it's a great day out, especially with 14 day tickets for seaworld and aquatica as part of the deal. Snorkeling in the grand reef is just spectacular - we were in there for hours - and there are deeper and shallower parts for all to enjoy. Expect to pay heavily for photographs. But you just have to...
