Wow. I really need to visit this park. Is a day enough to see everything including the dolphin encounter? Or the opposite question, is it a full day park?

^I'd say it's a 3/4 day park with the dolphin swim.

It depends how much you like just laying around on a beach.

^ Yeah, that's pretty much it. It's not a go go go kinda place. With such a small crowd each day, you're never rushed to do anything. Even with breakfast, lunch, and the dolphin swim, there's plenty of time to see everything AND relax on the beach for quite a while. The thing about DC is that if you're a beach person, you really won't wanna leave once you're there.

Wow, interesting park, I like its uniqueness. I'll have to check it out the next time I'm in Orlando.

Superb pics!

Yeah it's not a whole day park, even if you relax and take your time (which you should do there anyway) but it's a real nice place. Also Kraken is a pretty sweet ride.

This. I'm surprised more people don't use Discovery Cover as their gateway ticket to all of the SeaWorld parks in central Florida. I think for like an additional $50 you can get unlimited admission to SeaWorld, Busch Gardens, and Aquatica for the length of your vacation which is a great deal.

These new additions look fantastic, I can't wait to get down here again sometime soon and check them out.

Edit: I Just verified pricing and it's only $20 additional to enjoy SeaWorld, Busch Gardens, and Aquatica for 14 days. So $300 for a dolphoin swim and full day at Discover Cove plus 14 days unlimited admission to SeaWorld, Busch Gardens, and Aquatica. Best deal in Orlando by far.

AMAZING. This is so on my itinerary the next time I'm in Orlando. Those are some pretty damned adorable animals.

Here is some video I took at SeaWorld a couple days ago showing off some of the animals and the coasters:

Here is some (very shakey!) video footage I took at Discovery Cove two weeks ago showing the otters playing around, along with being surrounded by stingrays and fish in the grand reef:

I realized the other day I've been to both of these places so many times and never took any video, so I finally got around to it! :b

I've gone pantless!

Looks like a great addition to Discovery Cove. How much did Renee charge you for those pictures with her?
