The Christmas events are all included in the regular ticket.

Unfortunately, though, I have no idea about the military free admission. I would call and ask.

We are considering doing Discovery Cove on December 27 this year before we go on our Disney cruise. The dolphin swim would be a Christmas present for our DDs (10 and 7 at the time). I am worried about 1) temperature and 2) crowds. Is it worth the risk, or should we save this for another warmer weather trip?

Yes there is always a chance that it will be cold, but there is a chance that it will be beautiful outside. Extreme cold in Florida is rare and even if it is cold, it usually warms up by the afternoon. Crowd size shouldn't be an issue either. Discovery Cove only allows a certain number of people in per day. (I think 1,000 people. I may be wrong but its a pretty low number compared to an actual theme park)

If you save this for a warmer weather trip, then you run the risk of having rain and storms.

No worries on the crowds. DC caps admission at a very low number of people (something like 1000 max), so there are never crowds even when its a sold-out day.

As for the temps, we went on January 1st, 2012 and had gorgeous weather. Of course, that's not guaranteed......but you are also not guaranteed to have it be "cold", either. The lazy river and Freshwater Oasis are super warm great places to hang out on a chillier day, and they also set up heaters near the restaurant where you can dry off quickly and warm up. The wet suits also help keep you warm on cooler days.

I would not hesitate to book again on Christmas week.

I am taking a risk, as I booked Christmas for this year. Cannot wait to go back. We enjoyed it 2 Augusts ago. They have full wetsuits to help with the cold. The river was warm and I too hope it will be a nice day.

Thank you. I was having a moment of panic, but now I think we will stick with our plan.
