Discovery Cove/Super Grover Pass

I'm sure these questions have been asked a million times and I apologize in advance, but a lot of the info I am finding is from 2013 or earlier so I'm hoping for some up to date info. Thanks in advance!!
1. If I purchase the Super Grover Pass, how do I know when the Discovery Cove discount is available? For instance, we want to go to DC in March. How can I find out if the discount is available then prior to purchasing the Sesame Place season pass? Also how much is the discount? Is it actually worth buying the season pass if we will only do Sesame Place once or twice during the year?
2. Does the Super Grover Pass give special perks at the other parks (parking, discounts on merchandise, priority seating at Sea World, etc.)?
3. Can I purchase the Sea World dining in addition to our Discovery Cove tickets?
4. How exactly does the 14 days pass work? Can I spend the day at Discovery Cove then go to Sea World in the evening?
and finally, I hope...
5. Can children under 2 enter any of the swimming areas at Discovery Cove? My son is almost 9 months old now and loves the water! He will still be under a year in March, can he go in the snorkel area with my husband or I? Lazy River? Stingrays? I know he can't do the dolphin swim but I'm wondering what he will do all day.
Again, Thanks in advance!!!!

I'll try to answer these as best as I can, hopefully others can add their answers.

1. If I purchase the Super Grover Pass, how do I know when the Discovery Cove discount is available? For instance, we want to go to DC in March. How can I find out if the discount is available then prior to purchasing the Sesame Place season pass? Also how much is the discount? Is it actually worth buying the season pass if we will only do Sesame Place once or twice during the year? I do not know when the discounts are announced, if they are. The pass member benefits site for Sesame Place does not specify what the discount is - it may vary depending on the time of year? Once you redeem your pass voucher and receive a barcode, you would be able to see all the discounts for which you are eligible on the pass member website.

2. Does the Super Grover Pass give special perks at the other parks (parking, discounts on merchandise, priority seating at Sea World, etc.)? Yes, the Super Grover Pass gives you free general parking at the other SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment parks. It also gives you a 10% discount on food and merchandise at other parks (restrictions apply). It does not give you the priority seating at the shows at SeaWorld Orlando. It does give you special perks at Sesame Place, though, like the free preferred parking, character meet and greets during the regular season, early park entry for a few summer months, etc. This page is helpful in finding the discounts.

3. Can I purchase the Sea World dining in addition to our Discovery Cove tickets? Yes, you can purchase the All Day Dining Deal on its own.

4. How exactly does the 14 days pass work? Can I spend the day at Discovery Cove then go to Sea World in the evening? You can visit SeaWorld and Aquatica during any 14-day window that includes your Discovery Cove visit - including before or after your Discovery Cove visit.

5. Can children under 2 enter any of the swimming areas at Discovery Cove? My son is almost 9 months old now and loves the water! He will still be under a year in March, can he go in the snorkel area with my husband or I? Lazy River? Stingrays? I know he can't do the dolphin swim but I'm wondering what he will do all day. Your son would be allowed in any of the pools at Discovery Cove. There are no age restrictions, according to the website.

I purchased a Sea World and Aquatica annual pass and got the Discovery Cove discount. I just called Discovery Cove and asked if the discount was available for the date I wanted. I had the pass in the cart and was all ready to hit confirm once I found out if it was available and finished the annual pass purchase while talking to the agent. They didn't end up needing any annual pass info to make the reservation. The customer service agent just said to make sure to bring the annual pass to Discovery Cove on that day.

Thanks so much for the quick responses. I'm still not sure if we will get an annual pass or just bite the bullet and pay full price for DC, but I know for sure we will be headed there this Spring
