Is there any better place to live than Mickey's backyard?

We just did this and it was horrible!

We seriously felt like we were there just for them to take pictures to sell to us @ $25 each afterwards!

We were herded around like cattle and directed to look at the camera rather than looking at and enjoying our time with the dolphins.

A small child was bitten by one of the dolphins and none of the staff even checked on her to make sure she was ok!

Additionally, the orientation videos were apparently broken, the life jackets were falling apart, and the latches on the changing rooms were so rusted I almost couldn't out.

As far as lunch, we did not get the hamburgers & fries as advertised - it was soggy cole slaw, green salad & pasta salad, some type of potato casserole, chicken legs, and fried fish - and it was rationed out!! They did have hotdogs "for the kids who don't like the adult food" and I did manage to convince them to let me have one since the other stuff was not at all appetizing to me.

We also never got the island tour which was a huge disappointment to me. I had never been to Tortola before and was thrilled to be going to see the island with DH as it's an island he loves and has been telling me about for years!

I will never go back and I certainly wouldn't take my children.

I do have to say that I was quite surprised though, as I have read many great reviews of Dolphin Discovery... maybe it's just the Tortola location that's bad?

One should always have a getaway to look forward to - even if it's just one night!!
