With rain the dolphin swim continues but if there is lightning then it will be postponed. If there is no longer enough time left to reschedule the swim they will rebook you a free day up to 2 years later.

As with all the above and invariably our no1 day in Orlando. We dont do the Dolphin swim any more, though.

As regards photographing the Dolphin swim, we had to buy a small package.

Photo packages are expensive. In some ways, you are better served by buying a really good underwater camera such as an Olympus tough and then using it in a pouch on your belt loop or in your trunks for the whole vacation. You can drop it, submerge it and generally forget it except for when you want to use it. We have had some great shots in DC, in the water parks, on rides and in many places where we would never have risked a DSLR (or even be allowed to carry one).

Ours is currently a TG-4 , but there are many others by Olympus (and rivals) that come in way below in price.

I had a wonderful day there last September and am going back again this September. My favourite part was an add-on called SeaVenture - you walk under water among the fish wearing a helmet with a breathing tube coming out of it. It's an amazing experience and I'm doing it again this year too.

If you are keen on the whole photo package it may be worth looking at the elite package where you get a private cabana as this includes all the full photo package. It's not cheap but it's fab if you want to treat yourselves to some luxury.

Just had a look at seaventure and it looks great but Im weary of overbooking ourselves, I want us to have some time to relax as well. We will definitely be doing the dolphin swim and Im about to look into how much the massages are.

Also with the day beds, they look great but has anyone had any experience with hiring them? Just saw in a tracker video and where the ones they showed where looked a bit isolated and they didnt seem to have a view of anything. Are they definitely better then normal sunbeds- location and comfort wise?

Thanks for everyones help so far!

Following on from that, I actually cant find the massages on the discovery cove website, only mentions of them on blogging sites. Are they still offering these?

I didn't use a bed of any sort. I was on the go the whole time apart when I was eating and drinking and being on the go there is very relaxing. Did the dolphin swim, SeaVenture and all the other stuff. I don't like sunbathing anyway.
