That's a great offer!

I ran regular prices for Christmas week (just for fun) and the dolphin swim admission is $259-$289 pp, while the day resort only is $169-199. Depending on what you choose, you could be saving up to $100 pp.

Thanks for sharing, OP!

I just read the fine print at the bottom of the link. The offer is open to US residents only. Worth pointing out as there are many Disers from Canada and the UK on the boards.

Wow, that is great!

Do you think it's possible to cancel my Nov reservation and rebook with my American Express card to get this deal?

I don't have an Amex card but was able to book this promo buy purchasing (a large) amex gift card...suggest checking the offer or calling to make sure before attempting though, things may have changed since i see the offer indicates you need to present an Amex card at checkin.

also, consider signing up on discovery cove's facebook page and for promotion emails on website. Last year they had a promo come out via email for a three day sail for Oct, Nov & Dec at the $189 rate.

Thank you so much for posting this!!! I had been on the fence about getting the premium package/cabana given the additional cost. However, with this deal, the money that I just saved by cancelling our November trip and rebooking it just saved me the cost of that package Thanks again!

Would an Amex Blue card work?! I may need to get an Amex card right away!
Also I have a citibank card that has the AMEX logo on it. I wonder if that would work?

I don't see anywhere on DC Facebook page to sign up for emails. I have liked their page and see their postings almost daily. I don't think I've ever had an email from them.
Just applied for Amex Blue. I hope they are FAST! I need that card. i've been waiting for a deal like this!

To sign up for their emails, you have to go to their website (not their Facebook page).

Go to www.discoverycove.com. Right at the top of the page (next to the "Find us on Facebook" logo) there is a spot that says "Email Sign Up". That's what you want to click on .
