Discovery Cove Logo - Large

Discovery Cove now lets guests design the perfect vacation package 

— Hotel stays, meal plans, front-of-line access, reserved seating and multi-park tickets among new package perks —

 

With a few mouse clicks, Discovery Cove guests can now transform a single-day experience into an entire vacation that includes accommodations at one of the park’s official partner hotels.

Discovery Cove Orlando Valentine's Day Dolphin Experience

Discovery Cove Vacations, a new online booking tool, allows guests to design a custom-tailored package that meets their specific travel needs.  All packages start with a day at Discovery Cove, an all-inclusive resort park best known for its dolphin swim experience.  Once they’ve planned their visit, guests can add a hotel stay in one of 16 partner hotels, many within walking distance. 

 Discovery Cove Serenity Bay

All packages include unlimited admission to SeaWorld Orlando® and Aquatica, SeaWorld’s Waterpark™, for 14 consecutive days around the date of the reservation, as well as reserved seating at SeaWorlds inspiring shows, 10% off dining and merchandise purchases in the park, early park access on select days, and one Cup that Cares, a build-your-own personalized penguin-shaped character cup available exclusively at SeaWorld’s Antarctica – Empire of the Penguin. In addition, guests who chose any of the Official Hotels of SeaWorld also receive front-of-line access on rides, complimentary transportation to the parks, and access to the exclusive SeaWorld Rescue Tour, a behind-the-scenes look at SeaWorld’s rescue and rehabilitation facilities.  All hotels also offer a fifth night free.

With so many package extras, the average savings for a family of four is as much as $400.

“One of the biggest benefits of booking a vacation with us is the level of trust guests can have in the process,” said Toni Caracciolo, vice president of marketing and sales for SeaWorld Parks & Resorts.  “Our partner hotels offer a wide range of price points and amenities, and they all maintain the same level of quality and customer service guests have come to expect from our parks.  Its like having a local friend guide you to all the best places while youre in town.” 

Discovery Cove Shelley Dolphin 

Discovery Cove is a one-of-a kind, highly interactive marine park where guests swim with bottlenose dolphins, snorkel among thousands of tropical fish and rays, and play in a fresh-water river.  The all-inclusive day resort also has an on-site aviary where guests hand-feed exotic birds.

Guests can help themselves throughout the day to freshly prepared meals like sweet Hawaiian chicken, fire-grilled fish and burgers, summer salads and homemade mac-and-cheese. Snacks as well as beer, wine and frozen daiquiris are available all-day to guests.
