    We're booked for May 22, 2018 at Discovery Cove with the dolphin swim. We will be staying at Art of Animation at Disney and are planning to Uber/Lyft to Discovery Cove. I've seen times ranging from 715-9am as times that people are getting to DC and was looking for a more concrete recommendation! They provide breakfast as well as lunch, right? Also, are there advanced photo packages or anything of the sort? I'm sure the photos are insanely priced?

    Here's a link to the Discovery Cove sticky - https://www.disboards.com/threads/discovery-cove-general-information.3587710/ - which will give you a bit more detailed info.

    To answer your questions:
    - those that book the dolphin swim usually like to be there on the earlier side of things - you can check in any time after 7:15am
    - yes, they do serve both breakfast and lunch (the menus are on the sticky) - breakfast also starts at 7:15am
    - here is the most recent information I could find on the photo packages:
    THE DISCOVERY PACKAGE - $229 + tax
    8 - 6x8 prints (may be different or same images)
    1 - All-image PhotoKey
    1 - Dolphin Interaction DVD
    1 - 16x24 poster (24x36 poster add $10)
    1 - Photo Album
    A photo frame (chosen at the counter)
    You can add a second Discovery Package for $109.

    THE ADVENTURE PACKAGE - $169 + tax
    6 - 6x8 prints (may be different or same images)
    1 - All-image Photo Key
    A keychain set
    You can add your dolphin interaction DVD for an additional $75+ tax

    THE ISLAND PACKAGE - $99 + tax
    4 - 6x8 prints (may be different or same images)
    To book a photo package, call 407-513-4600.

    My fam & I got there around 9, which we thought was plenty early enough for us but the earlier you get there the earlier your dolphin swim will be.
    You get a discounted price on the Discovery photo package if you pre-pay before you go (I think it's 10 or 20 %). We just did the photo cd for 150.
