Day 1: Relaxation
|my lunch + day special Brownies.|
211 Eola Pkwy
Orlando, FL 32801
The i-Drive is a wonderful stretch of street with endless plethora of entertainment and meal option. From Orlando eye to Wonderworks to Madame Tussaud's, this place definitely represents Orlando at it's best and deserve a 1-2 days trip itself.
Day 2: Theme parkWhen we were deciding on which theme park/ day resort are we gonna spend time in, we came down to the final 2: Disney World or Discovery Cove. As I've been to Disney, and theme parks in general do not impress me, that was not a tough decision to make. Furthermore, the reservation to Discovery Cove also includes a 14-days unlimited access to SeaWorld and Aquatica Orlando (and Busch Gardens Tampa Bay if you choose one of the ultimate packages), so here we are!
The Shamu show (Killer Whales),
One world (Dolphin and acrobatic show)
Thrilling rides: Kraken and Mantee (without long crazy queues)
Milder ride: Atlantic (penguins)
Ihu's Breakaway Falls (The newly installed drop slide! Tips: take the purple slide, don't ask me why.)
Taumata Racer (a high-speed competitive mat ride ripping down a staggeringly steep hill, head first.)
Dolphin Plunge ( You will slide through a transparent tube, right pass the Commerson's Dolphins' tank. )
Day 3: Day Resort
The Discovery Cove came under "Splurge" in this trip, but it was worth it. Discovery Cove is an all inclusive day resort. Meaning to say that all meals, snacks, drinks, cocktails, gear, wet suit and activities are included once you check in.The use of lockers, wet suit, towels and mask were all included in the admission. It did not get crowded at all in the Discovery Cove although it was "high-season" in summer. The daily capacity of the resort is capped at 1,200 people so that all guests can enjoy their time here at a relaxed pace.
