I would go with Monday, but DC only sells a set numbers of passes each day so even if you go with Saturday there will not be all to wall people there.

If you can I would also suggest a cabana and request one of the older ones, waterfall would be nice, that way you hae a quiet place to retreat too as well if you need to get away from the noise and crowd. The older ones I feel are more private, while the newer ones open out to the reef.

Not a problem, we rent one every trip when possible. Make sure to have them note that on your reservation, especially the reason why so that you have a better chance of getting one.

Last year we had one of the newer ones and even through it was nice it was not as private and easier for the little one to get into the water since it walked out into the reef area.

Hope you have a great time! We will be there in May and can't wait

I will be there on Nov 11 and have reserved the cabana package. My son is autistic and we reserved this so he has a place to go in case he needs the private space and to avoid meltdowns. We are all looking forward to it!

You haven't mentioned if you are going to Disney on this trip....
If so the Disney parks are the busiest on Saturday so that would be a good day to go to Discovery Cove since they set a limit as to how many people are in the park.

We went to Discovery Cove on our last trip October 2012 and I chose to go on a Saturday. I picked Saturday because DC limits how many ppl they let in. Max 1,000 ppl per day so a Monday or Tuesday will not be any more crowded than a Saturday or Sunday in most cases. But the parks however do get very crowded on Saturdays. SO I picked Saturday for DC.

We did not rent a cabana and would not rent one if we ever went back. We stayed busy all day doing the different activities and if we had rented one it would have been wasted money.

When we needed a break we went to the restaurant and sat down and had another meal. We ate 3 meals that day.

The only way I would rent a cabana is if it were VERY HOT outside and I had little kids that might need a break from the heat and sun. If they were too little to do the Dolphin swim a cabana might be a good place to keep them occupied.
