We recently returned from our trip.
I took my 2 Grand daughters ages 7 & 11 and it was the highlight of our trip.
Just to see the excitement on their faces (and mine) was worth every penny.
We plan to do it again but not for a few more years.

I just booked our Discovery Cove visit for March 2007 - the countdown is on! It will be my husband, me, and our two DDs aged 11 and 10. We are all so excited about swimming with the dolphins and experiencing the rest of the park. We're doing it in the middle of our two-week trip as a nice, relaxing day.

My daughters have read all the posts on this board and I think this is the part of our trip that they are looking forward to the most...thanks for all the great information and reports.

We just visited Discovery Cove on 12/27/06, and it was very chilly lets just say 50 degrees. When we arrived they greeted us, they had heaters throughout the park and steam was coming off the water. When they told us the water in the tropical river was 80 something degrees and the dolphin/coral reef water was in the seventies we were so happy. This park was absolutely AWESOME!!!! The food, atmosphere and friendly help made this day Perfect The dolphin encounter was so much fun, our dolphins name was Yoko. She gave us a ride, so cool! We will definately be back. I would highly recommend this park

I would love to surprise my family with a DC trip while we're in Florida this summer. We have a 2 year old and a 5 year old. Would they enjoy it? What would our 2 year old be able to do?

I would call them to ask, the thing you may be able to do is hang out at the lazy river/beach area, the bird aviary is right off of the river, the coral reef (snorkeling) and the dolphin encounter was awesome but they wouldn't be able to get a ride (I don't think). You also have the stingray encounter where you walk in. You don't have to do the dolphin encounter you could just pay and do the other. Definately give them a call it really is a great place. Hope you get to go

Can someone tell me about the breakfast? Is the park open during the "breakfast" time? If so it seems like it would be worth it to eat ahead of time and not waste your park time?

You get a continental breakfast, danish/coffee/juice after you check in. Plus they start serving lunch between 11:00-3:00, I would save your appetite for Discovery Cove the food is pretty darn good

It's a great place

We went last spring, myself, DH and two DD's aged 6 and 15. The food was great, all snacks and drinks provided, the different areas to swim with rays and sharks was fantastic and most of the staff were fabulous.

The downside for me was the dolphin interaction, very short, almost awkward feeling, and they push photos and dvds on you which I really didn't like although I ended up purchasing a dvd and wasn't happy with the quality.

Saying that it was our best vacation day, and if you take out the dolphin swim and hard sell eveything else was wonderful.

I was there on Thursday and we didn't feel it was a hard sell at all. Maybe it just depends on the employee you get?
