    Can anyone tell me what to expect pertaining to meals at Discovery cove? We are going in early November. I have 4 teenagers that love to eat, and I know food is included but have no idea exactly what that means

    Any other advice is welcome also! We are super excited!

    This is great! Thank you :) are you allowed to get lunch just once during that time frame, or could they have a hot dog at 11 and a burger at 2, for example?

    The lunch menu implies that you pick a meal, but really it is cafeteria style and you just tell them which foods you would like (ie, pick whichever entrees, sides, and desserts you want, and they load your tray up).

    The snacks are available throughout the park all day, and many are prepackaged (chips, peanuts, rice crispy treats) so you can even take a few home.

    The last time I went there were no "controls" in place - i.e. the don't scan anything when you get your food, so, I don't think there is any reason that they couldn't return several times throughout that timeframe.

    Been about 6 times and always could eat and drink as much as we wanted. And for the prices they charge .......... what's an extra hot dog.

    Once you're in the park, you can just walk up and do / eat whatever floats your boat. Want a second or third lunch? Hop in line again! BTW, lunch was the only thing in the whole park with a line.
