If someone were to blindfold you and drop you in the middle of Discovery Cove, you would never believe you were in the heart of Orlando, Florida. It’s a peaceful, lush, relaxing paradise and the only all-inclusive style resort in Orlando.
Now is the perfect time to book. During the Blue Friday Sale, you can save over 40% on both the Dolphin Swim package and Day Resort package. Plus, both packages include unlimited admission for 14 days to SeaWorld, Aquatica, and Busch Gardens Tampa Bay.
Even with a wide variety of activities to do throughout the day, you’ll never feel rushed or discouraged by crowds. I think that’s what I loved most about Discovery Cove. They limit the number of guests each day, so you’ll never have to wait in line or fight over beach chairs. It’s so refreshing and something everyone should experience when they are in Orlando, whether you are visiting on vacation or local.
Let’s dive in, shall we.
Amenities included with your Discovery Cove visit:
Don’t worry about packing your bags for this tropical getaway. Mostly everything you will need is provided such as lockers, shower and changing facilities, fresh towels, animal-safe sunscreen, snorkeling gear, and wetsuits and life vests. You also have access to lounge chairs and hammocks throughout the park. A wide-selection of complimentary food and beverages are also available throughout the day. Yes, even select alcoholic beverages are complimentary. Sit back, relax and sip on a pina colada.
This experience is available by reservation only. Make sure you add it when booking your day at Discovery Cove.
Snorkel with tropical fish and stingrays
Swimming with Sharks
The freshwater oasis is also a great place to warm up a bit after swimming in the chilly Grand Reef or Dolphin Lagoon. Float along as the currents carry you through lush tropical forests and waterfalls or relax in the 85-degree waters while enjoying a cocktail.
If you want to see even more animals, Animal Trek is 90-minute guided tour behind the scenes where you can experience a private bird feeding and an opportunity to meet other animals like a sloth and anteater. The otter feeding was also part of the Animal Trek upgrade.
Additional upgrades include a private cabana, upgraded drink package, and SeaVenture.
My day at Discovery Cove was one of the best. We packed so many experiences into one day and yet it was still relaxing and peaceful. I can’t wait to go back!
