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.

Our in-water dolphin experience was 30 minutes long followed by a orientation plus QnA session at the cabana. Next we waded into the shallow water of Dolphin Lagoon to meet our dolphin of the day, Luna. I enjoyed patting the dolphin (She is very "rubbery"), giving her a tummy-rub and feeding her small fish and ice (Which according to the trainer, is Luna's favorite snack in summer.) The unforgettable experience ended with a swim in deeper water with Luna.

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. We left this water paradise by 6 after picking up our complimentary entry photo at the souvenir counter (and you get a Discovery Cove Snorkel as souvenir too).
Guests of all ages are welcomed at Discovery cove. However, you must be 15 to enter the park without parental supervision, and at least 6 to swim with the dolphins.
Furthermore, the reservation 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) , which we visited prior to Discovery Cove.
I gladly give this experience a full 5 star.
