Discovery Cove is
ranked #3 in the United State's top attractions,
according to tripadvisor.com. And no wonder– it gives
you the chance to swim with dolphins, glide with sting
rays, and view tropical birds, among many other unique
attractions. The prices can seem a bit steep, but they
include a full day at the park, all you can eat or
drink– including alcoholic beverages– use of a mask and
vest or wetsuit, and a snorkel to keep. Discovery Cove
requires a reservation, and only 1,000 guests are
allowed in the park at any given time. If the price
still seems a bit high, reservations without the dolphin
pool have a lower rate.Check out our various deals and packages to make the most out of your Orlando vacation without being heavy on the budget.
