    I can't speak to Marineland, but I can tell you that the Discovery Cove program is very special.

    Check with Marineland to be sure they'll accept your daughter. Discovery Cove takes kids 6 and up for the dolphion encounter, but Marineland may have a higher age cutoff.

    Yes, Discovery Cove is expensive, but if it's any concolation, the admission includes 7 days at SeaWorld. And not everyone has to do the dolphin encounter.
